Anambra Governor Charles Soludo has dissociated himself from a comment he purportedly made about Peter Obi.
Soldudo was quoted saying a $20 million investment by Obi, on behalf of the state, is now worth $100million.
Reacting to a Facebook post by ‘Lamentations of a Bishop’, he asked where the poster read or head him “make such false statement’.
The governor noted that his team already debunked “this fake news”.
“We can always carry on with campaigning for our preferred candidates without consciously misleading the reading public.
“This report is false and never emanated from me. Thank you”, he wrote.
The comment credited to Soludo was similar to the one Obi, his predecessor, made in an interview in August 2018.
“Tomorrow they are commissioning Sagamu building – the biggest brewery in Africa.
“Anambra state is the single-highest shareholder in that facility.I invested in it over $20 million. It is almost worth $100m today”, he said.
Obi is the presidential candidate of the Labour Party (LP) for the 2023 election.
