The rumor that Prof. Charles Soludo, the governor of Anambra State, had procured $28 million from a third party or individual in order to threaten Peter Obi, the Labour Party’s presidential candidate, has been refuted by Soludo.
After the Thanksgiving mass held at St. Patrick’s Catholic Church in honor of Most Rev. Paulinus C. Ezeokafor’s 70th birthday, where he met Obi, Soludo responded to inquiries from reporters in Awka, the capital of Anambra State.
“I should be enormously wealthy as of today, the governor of Anambra claimed, if I had genuinely gotten $28 million to blackmail my brother, Peter Obi.”
I urged them to bring it so I could use it to build roads for the people of Anambra, for those who had faked blackmail and other documents, such as the one claiming I had accepted payment to say what I had said. I would be quite wealthy right now if Soludo were a big fan of bribing.
It’s a very special day today. When Obi and I entered the service, it was the first time we had met in a Catholic church that the two of us are members of and at a public event. It seemed divine to me.
Individuals stared in confusion as if it were a play as I entered and hurried up to hug him as they questioned whether or not it was the same people fighting, he said.
When asked about their alleged disagreement, Soludo said that it was political, highlighting the fact that he had only spoken to Obi a few times the previous evening and that politics had not affected their bond as brothers.
“Obi and I don’t personally disagree with one another. Nobody took away the wives of each other. Fundamental political differences appear to be the cause of our rift. nothing more.”
We’re planning to meet in the next weeks to discuss our core disagreements. We’ve agreed to have a conversation and work out our disagreements.
