Anambra State Governor, Professor Chukwuma Soludo, has debunked a report claiming that he is working against the ambition of Labour Party presidential candidate, Peter Obi.
The governor was reacting to a report that he ordered members of the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA) in Anambra State to work against Obi at the polls.
The report claimed that Soludo during a meeting charged APGA members in the state to work against Obi, because he was dreaming of the Presidency after Atiku Abubakar.
But in a statement made available to newsmen on Wednesday, the governor’s Chief Press Secretary, Mr Christian Aburime, denied the allegations, saying that at no time during the meeting was Obi a point of discourse.
“We note with disdain the fallacious and distasteful publication of a write-up by faceless individual.
“We would have chosen to ignore this mischievous and utterly despicable report, but for the benefit of a few innocent Ndi Anambra who could be mis-informed by the write-up.
“The following should, however, be noted: That Governor Chukwuma Soludo, CFR, only held a private meeting with his party members of the APGA. This meeting is a routine gathering where issues concerning APGA are discussed.
“At no time during the meeting was Mr Peter Obi a point of discourse.
“It is pertinent to note that issues discussed at the meeting were purely issues relating to APGA affairs.
“We therefore urge Ndi-Anambra and members of the general public to completely ignore and disregard the publication in all its entirety,”the statement read in part.
