Soludo denies telling aides to work against Peter Obi

Read audio

Governor Chukwuma Soludo of Anambra state has denied asking his aides to work against Labour Party presidential candidate, Peter Obi.

Soludo, in a statement released by his Press Secretary, Christian Aburime, said the allegation is the handwork of faceless individuals.

The statement reads;

Re: Soludo charges Anambra APGA to Work Against Peter Obi, dreams of Presidency after Atiku

We note with disdain the fallacious and distasteful publication of a write-up with the above heading by a faceless individual(s).

We would have chosen to ignore this mischievous and utterly despicable publication, but for the benefit of a few innocent Ndi Anambra who could be misinformed by the write-up.

The following should, however, be noted:

1) That Governor Chukwuma Soludo, CFR, only held a private meeting with his party members of the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA). This meeting is a routine gathering where issues concerning APGA are discussed.

At no time during the meeting was Mr Peter Obi, a point of discourse.

It is pertinent to note that issues discussed at the meeting were purely 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
