Anambra state Governor Chukwuma Charles Soludo First Son Ozonna Soludo has dissociated himself from his father attack on the person of Peter Obi .
Ozonna Soludo has declared that Peter Obi of the Labour Party is the best presidential candidate in the forthcoming 2023 general elections.
The 28-year old UK-based artiste made the comment on Facebook in response to a social media post criticizing his father for opposing Obi’s presidential ambition.
Professor Chukwuma Soludo, on Monday, November 14 openly dismissed Obi’s presidential ambition saying he won’t win.
The Anambra state governor also alleged that poverty grew to astronomical levels in Anambra under Obi’s watch.
The comment by Soludo triggered angry reactions from ‘Obidients’ – supporters of the Labour Party presidential candidate. While an attempt was made to drag Ozonna into the conversation, he stated that his opinion is different from that of his father.
His words: “I would appreciate not being dragged into this. I am not an extension of anybody. I have my own opinions and have always said I think Peter is the best candidate. All this has nothing to do with me.”
Recall that Soludo recently said the investments made by Obi, when the presidential candidate of the Labour Party was Anambra state’s chief executive is worth next to nothing at the moment.
Soludo made the comment in an interview with Channels TV’s Politics Today on Thursday, November 10.
When asked his perspective on government investing outside the public sector with reference to Obi as former governor in Anambra, Soludo said the value of those investments are now worth next to nothing.
