He said that for Peter Obi to called on the electorate in his state for vote massively for the LP means that with majority legislature being LP, would either work on their own or be cajoled to impeach him.
Governor Soludo spoke against the background of Peter Obi’s call last night, March 10, when he met with National and state Assembly candidates of the Labour Party in Anambra, on the assembly candidates to work with Soludo if elected into power.
The LP Presidential candidate said that Soludo should not fear being impeached by Labour Party-dominated assembly, as they would be working together to move the state forward.
But, Governor Soludo, in a reaction through his Press secretary, Chris Aburime said that the move by Obi could be deceptive.
He said: “That call was meant to deceive Anambra people. Obi can not be talking about development in Anambra and also be talking about asking Anambra people to elect lawmakers from the opposition party to work with Soludo.
“He worked with a legislature that was dominated by lawmakers from the PDP, when he first came in as governor, and he knows that it was not easy for him.
“He even suffered impeachment because of that, and we hope it is not the same thing he wants to set Soludo up for.
“Anambra people should go all out next Saturday and vote for APGA, if they want the developmental strides of Mr Governor to continue.
“You can not be talking of development and at the same time talking of electing opposition politicians into the House of Assembly, it is not done. It is deceit.
“Anambra people supported Obi during the presidential election, and besides, Soludo refused to interfere as the people trooped out to vote for Labour Party, and that was even before Soludo made the environment conducive for people to come out and vote.
“We have voted Labour Party in the presidential election, but for the House of Assembly election, we are voting for APGA, and we want Anambra people to know so.”
Though there won’t be a governorship election in Anambra on March 18 but Soludo, who belongs to the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA) would be fighting to have control of the state assembly amidst the Obi-influenced tsunami in Anambra State which may tilt votes in favour of Laboir Party legislative candidates.
It would be recalled Obi won 92 percent of Anambra votes in the presidential election held two weeks ago.
