I Never Expressed Misgivings About Soludo – Obiano
Soludo, Obiano

Former governor of Anambra State, Willie Obiano, has denied saying he regretted making his successor and current governor of the state, Prof. Chukwuma Soludo, the governor.

Obiano was reacting to a widespread rumour making the rounds and alleging that he told some people in a meeting that he regretted making Soludo the governor of the state.

The rumour also quoted Obiano as saying he discussed impeachment moves against Soludo with the deputy governor, Dr Onyekachukwu Ibezim, and the Speaker of the state House of Assembly, Uche Okafor.

Reacting further through a statement made available to journalists in Awka, on Thursday, by his Chief Publicist, Tony Nezianya, the former governor insisted that he never said anything like that.

In the statement, Obiano said he renewed faith in Soludo’s performance and style of governance.

The statement read, “I have not at any fora expressed misgivings about him. I never said to anyone or a group that I am disappointed in him.

‘’I never raised any issues concerning campaign funding for my wife, who is seeking an Anambra North ticket.

‘’I never granted an interview over such a matter. The author of such a verse is on a mischievous venture with an aim at causing disharmony, he does not have my authorisation.

‘’I state unequivocally that whoever did that is a mischief maker.

‘’I never said anything like that. I did not at any point discuss my wife’s funding with you.

‘’That clearly shows the comment is false as the handiwork of a fake news vendor.

‘’I have confidence that Governor Soludo will live up to the high expectations of Ndi Anambra.”
