2023: I wish you the best of luck – Soludo to Peter Obi ahead of election

Governor Soludo and Peter Obi Governor Soludo and Peter Obi

Governor of Anambra State, Charles Soludo opines that Peter Obi, the presidential candidate of the Labour Party is likely to win the presidential election in the state.

Soludo, who is a former Central Bank Governor made this known on Thursday when he appeared as a guest on Channels Television’s Politics Today programme. He also wished the former Anambra governor well.

Recall that Soludo had, a few months ago, faulted Obi’s presidential ambition, saying he (Obi) will not win the February election.

In a piece that literally set the internet ablaze, Soludo rubbished Obi’s performance while serving as governor of Anambra State, stressing that the achievement of the LP candidate in the State was relatively nothing.

Referring to the article, Soludo said, “In that piece, I even considered that Peter Obi might win in Anambra State. I did mention that,” he said but doubted the possibility of the LP presidential candidate to win the overall election.

“I wish Peter Obi the best of luck. Let him go and compete as others.”
