The governor of Anambra State, Professor Chukwuma Soludo has denied claims saying that he was working against Peter Obi’s presidency campaign via the Labour Party.
The governor’s statement was coming as a response to reports that he gave directives to the supporters of the All Progressives Grand Alliance -APGA, in Anambra to work against Obi during the presidential polls next year.
According to the allegation, Soludo had allegedly asked the Anambra APGA party to work against Obi because he (Soludo) hoped to succeed Atiku Abubakar as president.
However, in a statement made available to media in Awka on Wednesday, Soludo’s press secretary, Mr. Christian Aburime, denied the claims, stating that Peter Obi was never a topic of conversation during their meeting.
In a statement titled, ‘Re: Soludo charges Anambra APGA to work against Peter Obi, dreams of Presidency after Atiku, the text head:
“At no point during the meeting was Mr. Peter Obi a point of discourse. It is pertinent to note that the issues discussed at the meeting were only issues relating to APGA affairs. We , therefore,urge Ndi-Anambra and members of the general public to completely ignore and disregard the publication in all its entirety.”
