Gov. Soludo denies mocking Obi, says is handiwork of overzealous reporter
Governor Charles Chukwuma Soludo of Anambra state has disassociated himself from media reports making round that he has mocked the Labour Party presidential candidate.
In a press release on Monday by the Press Secretary to the governor, Mr. Christian Amurime, Prof. Soludo explained that this is a misrepresentation by an overzealous reporter.
The full text of the release is given below.
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.
