Soludo Speaks On Regretting Anti-Peter Obi Comments
Governor Chukwuma Charles Soludo of Anambra State has denied regretting his comments on the chances of a former governor of the state and the Labour Party presidential candidate, Peter Obi.
Naija News recalls that Soludo had in an article titled, ‘History beckons and I will not be silent,’ dismissed the chances of the Labour Party flagbearer in the coming presidential poll and criticised the style of Ndigbo in its quest for the country’s number one seat.
He also slammed Peter Obi for dumping the All Progressives Grand Alliance to the Peoples Democratic Party and later, Labour Party.
However, his article drew mixed reactions across the country, with many Nigerians on social media strongly criticising him.
But speaking to The PUNCH on Thursday, the Press Secretary to the Anambra State Governor, Christian Aburime said Soludo does not regret his comments.
He stated that Anambra State Governor had the right to his opinion on the 2023 general election.
“The governor is not feeling any way threatened even as the article has triggered series of backlashes, threats and criticisms,” Soludo’s aide said.
