Awka, Anambra – Governor Charles Soludo of Anambra state has said that there is no more rift between him and the presidential candidate of the Labour Party (LP), Peter Obi.
Soludo said that what appeared as a quarrel between him and the former governor of Anambra State was mere political differences, which he said, has been taken care of.
He made the clarification on Thursday, November 24, during the 70th birthday celebration of the Catholic bishop of Awka diocese, Most Rev. Paulinus Ezeokafor, at St. Patrick’s Cathedral, Awka.
In a statement made available to Legit.ng by Mokwugwo Solomon, the governor was quoted to have said:
“The perceived quarrel between me and my brother, Peter Obi, does not exist. When I hugged him inside the church, a lot of people looked perplexed.
“They were almost asking “is this a drama?” “They were surprised because, they thought we were quarrelling; but that is not true. We are no longer quarrelling.y relationship with Obi is not the way people are projecting it on the social media.
“What appeared like a quarrel was a little political issue, which we have resolved. Just yesterday (Wednesday) I spoke with him two times on phone. We discussed at length. We also agreed to have a more fruitful talk in a week’s time or thereabout. We shall discuss some salient issues about the coming election.”
Soludo said he was highly misunderstood, and abused; but that he did not mean any harm when he granted the interview.
“As a Christian, I spoke the truth. But the truth I spoke was misrepresented. We have, however, put everything behind.
“Nothing – even politics – cannot stand between me and Peter Obi. He is my brother. No matter how people make it to appear, I cannot have any quarrel with him.”
