Obi To Soludo: I Governed Anambra As A Trader, It’s His Turn To Deliver As A Professor, But I Remain Prayerful For Him

Peter Obi, Presidential Candidate of Labour Party, has reacted to the strongly-worded letter which Governor Charles Soludo wrote about his 2023 ambition, saying he remains prayerful for him.

Soludo had in a 4008-word letter released on Monday afternoon, which literally set the internet on fire, dismissed Obi as a joker in the 2023 Presidential race.

The Anambra State Governor said Obi would only deplete the votes of former Vice-President Atiku Abubakar of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and widen the chances of Bola Ahmed Tinubu of the All Progressives Congress (APC).

Accusing Obi of multiple defections from the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA) to PDP and now Labour Party, Soludo his predecessor himself knows that he cannot win.

Soludo also took a swipe at Obi supporters whom he referred to as social media mob.

Reacting, while speaking to the alumni association of the Lagos Business School on Tuesday, Obi said Soludo remains his brother.

The LBS Alumni Day themed, ‘The Leadership Imperative’ is one of the engagement platforms hosting political office seekers to answer questions and share their vision for the country.

“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’s still part of a global chain and everything. I needed to explain it not because I’m defending comments made by my brother.

“My brother is a brother and remains my brother. We’re very close. I remain prayerful for him. Of other things which I didn’t succeed, God has given him the opportunity to do it and succeed.

“For me…if there is anything pending, governance, governance you don’t finish. People are still in government in America. So, you stop where you stop. Other people will continue from there. I don’t look back. He is the Governor of my State. He is my senior brother. He is even more intelligent than I am. He is a Professor and I am a trader. He knows more.

“So, he will be able to do this better than I’m doing it. I have done my little work as a trader. Now the Professor is there, he will do his own thing as a Professor. The schools that I didn’t roof, you roof them. That’s our government goes,” the LP presidential candidate said.
