Igbo Sends 2 Deities After Soludo 

Ola ‘Kiya, Reporting

THE apex Igbo socio-cultural organization, Ohanaeze Ndigbo, has detailed two prominent deities after governor of Anambra State over his damning comment on the presidential ambition of Peter Obi, his predecessor.

Stonix News reports that Peter Obi is the Presidential Candidate of the Labour Party (LP) with the average youths as his supporters across the Nigerian state.

Professor Soludo, whose ticket as governor is under APGA, on Monday, reeled out the part one of a long thesis, denouncing the presidential quest of his brother, Obi.

Soludo, a former governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN), categorically stated in the letter that Mr Obi was aware he would not win and that he would not win the 2023 presidential election, adding that coming third would even be impossible.

He maintained that Obi was not ready for the presidential race, declaring he was merely catching a cruise.

Angered by the verdict from a governor and brother who should be at the forefront of the struggle to redress the continued marginalisation of the Igbo in national politics, the group said it had dragged Soludo to two deities in Igbo land, for discrediting the legacies of Peter Obi.

In a statement signed by its Secretary-General, Okechukwu Isiguzoro, on Tuesday, Ohanaeze said: “Ndigbo have dragged Governor Soludo to the two famous divinities and deities (Chokoleze in Mbaise and Ubiniukpabi in Arochuku) for his unreasonable public behaviour.

“Governor Soludo’s actions are ridiculous, unreasonable and premature; there was no locus for the Governor’s outburst and the sanctions against Soludo to face Igbo deities will serve as a deterrent to South-East politicians who have been hired by enemies of Ndigbo and Nigerians to derail the Obi’s presidency in 2023.

“Governor Soludo exposed and indicted himself of treachery when he discredited APGA and Labour Party’s presidential candidates as not viable alternatives to win the 2023 elections.

“How can a state governor of two presidential candidates (APGA and LP) make such a public declaration?

“He has confirmed that he is the number one enemy of the new Nigeria and was hired by an unpopular presidential candidate who is looking for Igbo politicians to pull down Obi’s popularity ahead of the 2023 elections.

“We advise Soludo to concentrate on the current crisis in Anambra State and APGA and stop casting innuendo and aspersions on the person of Mr. Peter Obi.

“The LP presidential candidate is not in the same political party with him and is not fighting the Anambra State government.”
