GOV SOLUDO DENIES MOCKING PETER OBI

Social sharing

Governor Charles Soludo of Anambra state has denied mocking his predecessor, Peter Obi in a recent speech.

Recall it was reported that Soludo “mocked” Peter Obi who is the presidential candidate of the Labour Party, by saying “Labour Party will labor in vain”.

Reacting to this via a statement released by his press secretary, the Anambra state government stated that the ‘overzealous’ journalist who reported the story was not present when he spoke.

Soludo added that it is an “attempt by some misguided elements to cause disaffection between the Labour Party Presidential candidate, His Excellency, Peter Obi, and the party leadership”.

The statement read;

RE: SOLUDO MOCKS PETER OBI, SAYS LP WILL LABOUR IN VAIN

The above statement allegedly credited to Governor Chukwuma Charles Soludo, CFR is false and unfounded

Our checks reveal the statement was a total misrepresentation by an overzealous reporter who was not among the journalists present when Governor Soludo spoke extempore during his interaction with some audience after his 100 days in office media broadcast

The above statement could best be described as an attempt by some misguided elements to cause disaffection between the Labour Party Presidential candidate, His Excellency, Peter Obi, and the party leadership

We, therefore, wish to caution those wishing to cause mischief by publishing false and misleading stories to desist from doing so

The public should please disregard the entire statement as it never emanated from Governor Soludo
