Labour Party’s presidential candidate Peter Obi, said he would not be distracted by the lengthy article of calumny crafted by Anambra State governor Charles Soludo.
Prof. Soludo on Monday wrote on his facebook page that Obi has no chance of winning the presidential elections and was only making it easy for the All Progressives Congress candidate Bola Ahmed Tinubu. This was after he had claimed the previous week that Obi’s investments in Anambra while he was governor were a waste.
But Obi who was speaking Tuesday in at the 2022 Lagos Business School (LBS) Alumni Conference in Lagos said while he was governor he did his best a trader, but now Soludo must also do his best as a Professor.
“He (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,” Obi said.
“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.”
The former governor said he left the office with the savings of 75 Billion Naira, adding that his administration saved 50 million dollars each in Access, Diamond and Fidelity banks with an interest rate of 6.5%.
“The one they said is worthless, we invested 3.5 billion naira in International Breweries…that facility is there employing directly and indirectly over 10,000 Anambarians. The shares was at a time being sold at N50, today the shares is about N5 or so.
“When you spread your investment some will go up some will come down but overall the company is still there, the company is still doing well, it is still part of the global chain and everything. I needed to explain it not because I am defending comments by my brother,”
