Governor Chukwuma Charles Soludo of Anambra State has said the presidential candidate of the Labour Party may definitely win the state come February 25 presidential election. Soludo, who in 2022, in a long essay, said there was no possibility for the former governor of Anambra to become president, said he wishes Obi the best of luck.
Professor Soludo, a former Central Bank of Nigeria governor, said this on Thursday while speaking on Channels TV Politics Today. The Anambra State governor said he has nothing against the presidential ambition of the former Anambra governor.
In the piece that literally set the internet ablaze, Soludo rubbished Obi’s performance while serving as governor of Anambra State, stressing that the achievement of the LP candidate in the State was relatively nothing. He added that the savings Obi made as governor of the state were worth next to nothing.
Referring to the article, Soludo said, “In that piece, I even considered that Peter Obi might win in Anambra State. I did mention that,” but doubted the possibility of the LP presidential candidate winning the overall election.
“I wish Peter Obi the best of luck. Let him go and compete as others,” he added.
Professor Soludo is rumoured to be working for the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Atiku Abubakar. Though he (Soludo) has denied receiving money from the former vice president, he has been mobilizing the state’s traditional rulers and students for Atiku.
