Obi reacts to Soludo’s attack on him 


The verbal attack on Peter Obi, by Anambra State Governor, Chukwuma Soludo, has drawn the reaction of the Labour Party Presidential candidate. 

Soludo had torn into Obi, saying his time as Anambra governor caused more poverty in the state and that the Labour Party candidate stood no chance in the forthcoming election among other unfriendly remarks. 

Reacting through his Campaign Council spokesman, Yunusa Tanko, Obi said, “Soludo feels he is larger than life and that if it is not him, it should not be anybody. But God has chosen Obi and there is nothing he can do about it. He should just go and lick his wounds. 

“The fact still remains that it is Obi on the ballot. He does not have the capacity to determine whether Obi will win or not. As we are seeing it, Obi is winning a landslide victory. 

“Soludo is just allowing himself to be used. It is an orchestrated attempt to weaken our own base starting from Anambra to other states in the South East. That was the strategy. 

“I don’t know why he is trying to risk everything he has for this particular negative cause. But we will rely on the love that would be shown by Obi’s people to triumph during our campaign there.”
