Soludo: I did not meet with Tinubu to stop Peter Obi, LP

Our reporter| Anambra State Governor, Chukwuma Soludo, on Monday, denied reports he met with Bola Ahmed Tinubu of the All Progressive Congress (APC), at the Imo state government house, Owerri, on how to stop the Labour Party (LP) presidential candidate, Peter Obi from pursuing the process to reclaim his mandate through a court process.

Tinubu was declared the winner of the Feb. 25 Presidential election by the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC.

But reports over the weekend emerged that a helicopter allegedly flew into Awka by 1:30am on Sunday and took Soludo to a secret meeting at Government House, Owerri.

The reports further alleged that Tinubu was said to be expressing concern about the growing popularity of Obi and solicited the help of Soludo to find a solution.

Reacting to the reports on Monday via a statement by his Press Secretary, Christian Aburime, Soludo described the allegations as false and disgusting.

“The general public is advised to disregard the allegations. Ndi Anambra should also disregard all the insinuations and come out to vote massively for APGA this Saturday for the State House of Assembly election in order to sustain the developmental strides of the present administration of Governor Soludo, the statement reads.

“If certain people could sit somewhere and cook up a story of this nature, it becomes highly reprehensible and certainly deserves to be condemned by every right-thinking person.”
