November 16, (THEWILL) – Apex Igbo socio-cultural organization, Ohanaeze Ndigbo, said it has handed over Anambra State Governor, Chukwuma Soludo, to Igbo land deities over comments made against the Labour Party presidential candidate, Peter Obi.
Soludo had in a lengthy letter, ruled Obi out of the presidential race, declaring that the Labour Party candidate was merely catching a cruise.
Reacting to the comment, Mazi Okechukwu Isiguzoro, Secretary-General, Ohanaeze Ndigbo Worldwide, in a statement made available to journalists on Tuesday, described Soludo’s comment as ridiculous, unreasonable and premature.
He said, “Ndigbo have dragged Governor Soludo to the two famous divinities and deities (Chokoleze in Mbaise and Ubiniukpabi in Arochuku) for his unreasonable public behaviour.”
“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 Southeast 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 election.”
It advised 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, who is not in the same political party with him and is not fighting the Anambra State Government.”
