The National Chairman of Labour Party, (LP) Barrister Julius Abure, says Governor Charles Soludo of Anambra State is destroying his future by attacking Presidential candidate of the party, Mr. Peter Obi.
In a strongly worded piece on Monday, Soludo tore the ambition of Obi into shreds, saying the Labour Party presidential candidate stands no chance in the 2023 race.
But reacting on Tuesday in Abuja, Abure said the opinion of Soludo is minority, saying by the time the Obi-Datti Campaign storms the South East, the governor will know who is really popular in the zone.
“Soludo’s comment is born out of self “Centeredness, it is born out of desperation. It is born out of envy and jealousy. I mean for somebody who was CBN governor, who should know the importance of investment which has been acclaimed by other governors to be one of the best that he has done in Anambra State.
“I mean for such a man to demean such a person, will tell you that he is acting from a selfish point of view. And therefore Soludo does not control the majority of the people of Anambra state. He does not have control over what plays out in Anambra State.”
“It’s very clear that he’s not speaking the mind of Anambra. It is a minority and myopic point of view, and the people of Anambra, even without consulting them, I can say it clearly that it is not a popular opinion and that’s why I’m saying that.
” By the time we take our Campaigns to Anambra state, very soon, and because of his comment, Anambra State will be the state that we will take our campaigns to very soon so that we can test our popularity and test to see who owns the land. My candid advice to him is that he should tone down his comments because he would be destroying his future, destroying himself if he continues along these lines.”
