Anambra State Governor, Charles Soludo has broken silence since his statement against Peter Obi got negative reactions from Nigerians.
Naija News NG reports that Governor Soludo in an article knocked Labour Party Presidential candidate and former Anambra State Governor, Peter Obi . Nigerians slammed him for it .
Soludo’s Press Secretary, Christian Aburime , in a statement said he doesn’t regret saying what he said about Peter Obi .
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.
“What the people should realise is that the governor only expressed his opinion, which is guaranteed by the constitution of the country and that opinion should not warrant threats or abuses.
“The governor’s son, Ozonna, did not disown what the father said. The trending article purportedly claiming that the son disowned what his father said did not emanate from Soludo’s son; it is simply the handiwork of mischief makers in order to blackmail the governor.
“It is not true that ‘unknown gunmen’ are threatening the governor to resign or be impeached. That report is false. Anambra people are behind Soludo and they are happy with what he is doing in the state.
“Nigerians all over the world are free to visit Anambra to see what the governor is doing. There is now law and order; all those impunity that used to be there before are no longer there.
“Soludo has no regret whatsoever because all he said has been said before and he should not be insulted for expressing his opinion.”
