Peter Obi responds to Soludo’s harsh criticism


Mr Peter Obi, the presidential candidate of the Labour Party has responded to the harsh criticism of his campaign by the Anambra State governor, Charles Soludo.

Soludo had in an article on Monday said Obi will not win and is only making it easier for the presidential candidate of All Progressives Congress, APC, Bola Tinubu to be elected.

But speaking at the Lagos Business School on Tuesday, Obi said that he did the little he could as governor and urged Soludo to do more as a professor.

“Governor Soludo remains my brother, we are very close. I remain prayerful for him. For other things which I didn’t succeed, God has given him opportunity to do it and succeed.

“So, if there is anything pending, governance doesn’t finish, people are still in government in America, so you stop where you will stop, other people will continue from there,”

“He is the governor of the state; he is my senior brother, he is even more intelligent than me because he is a professor, I am a trader, so he knows more and will be able to do things better than I am doing it.

“I have done my little own as a trader, now the professor is there he will do his own as a professor, the schools I didn’t roof he will roof them, that’s how government goes,” he said.
