2023 Election: Ohanaeze Ndigbo drags Governor Soludo to deities for criticising Peter Obi

Ohanaeze Ndigbo, the leading sociocultural organization of the Igbo people, claims it has taken Charles Soludo, the governor of Anambra State, to the gods because of a comment he made about Peter Obi, the Labour Party’s (LP) presidential candidate.

In a lengthy post, Soludo attacked Obi, claiming that he is aware that he cannot and will not succeed in winning the 2023 presidential election.

Soludo added that the LP flagbearer is only playing games in the article titled “History beckons and I will not be silent (Part 1).”

On Tuesday, November 15, Ohanaeze released a statement under the signature of its Secretary-General, Okechukwu Isiguzoro, in which it claimed that Soludo had been linked to two Igbo deities for undermining Peter Obi’s legacies.

“Ndigbo have dragged Governor Soludo to the two famous divinities and deities (Chokoleze in Mbaise and Ubiniukpabi in Arochuku) for his unreasonable public behaviour,” the statement read. 

“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.”
