Nigeria 2023 Presidency: Peter Obi Knows He Can’t Win. He Knows The Game He’s Playing- Anambra Gov. Soludo

Governor of Anambra State, Chukwuma Soludo has finally reacted to the backclash that greeted his interview with one of the television stations regarding the value of investment left by the Labour Party Presidential Candidate, Peter Obi

Soludo in a statement titled “History Beckons and I Will not be Silent” expressed disappointment with the abuse and harassment he and his family have been subjected since he granted the said interview.

The Anambra State Governor stated that he’s not afraid of a good fight and as such has decided to come clean with his position on the Peter Obi’s sojourn to be President of Nigeria.

According to him, “Peter Obi knows that he can’t and won’t win. He knows the game he is playing, and we know too; and he knows that we know,” saying “there’s no credible pathway for him to near the first two positions and if care is not taken, he won’t even near the third position”.

Soludo who described Obi’s presidential aspiration as “exciting drama” wondered why his Igbo kinsmen as a “foremost itinerant tribe and with the greatest stake in the Nigerian project does not yet have a strategy to engage Nigeria politically and have refused to properly understand Nigeria politics with their penchant for Nzogbu Nzogbu political dance every four years”

He maintained that Obi’s investment in Anambra State hold no significant value saying poverty more than doubled under Peter Obi’s government and more than 50% of Ndi Anambra were in poverty under him”.

Soludo went further to suggest that as governor sitting on privileged information, he won’t want to use it against a political opponent.

In his recommendations to Igbo socio-cultural groups like the Ohanaeze Ndigbo and Progressive Igbo leaders, Soludo advised them to study his committee report of 2019, the memorandum of understanding signed in 2010 at Yaradua Centre, strategise and bargain with two likely candidates to be President on issues affecting the southeast geopolitical zone.
