Peter Obi and Soludo
Reports published by some credible media outlets on Sunday had quoted the governor mocking those who the Labour Party would labour in vain in the 2023 general election.
Reacting in a statement by his press secretary, Christian Aburime, on Monday, Soludo accused overzealous journalists of publishing the report which he described as totally false and unfounded.
The governor said the report was an attempt by some misguided elements to cause disaffection between him and Obi, warning those who wish to cause mischief by publishing false and misleading stories to desist from doing so.
The statement reads, “RE: SOLUDO MOCKS PETER OBI, SAYS LP WILL LABOUR IN VAIN
“The above statement allegedly credited to Governor Chukwuma Charles Soludo, CFR is totally 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.”
KanyiDaily recalls that Governor Charles Soludo had recently described his first 100 days in office as bumpy and challenging, vowing to work tirelessly towards achieving his campaign promises to the people of the state.
