The Governor of Anambra State, Prof Chukwuma Soludo, has denied the allegation that he is working against the political ambition of Mr. Peter Obi, the presidential candidate of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP).
The governor’s reaction came following reports that he ordered members of the All Progressives Grand Alliance in Anambra to work against Obi at the polls.
In a statement made available to journalists in Awka on Wednesday, Soludo’s Press Secretary, Mr Christian Aburime, denied the allegation.
The statement titled “Re: Soludo charges Anambra APGA to work against Peter Obi, dreams of Presidency after Atiku” read in part, “We note with disdain the fallacious and distasteful publication of a write-up with the above heading by faceless individual(s).
“The following should, however, be noted: that Soludo only held a private meeting with APGA members.
“At no time during the meeting was Peter Obi a point of discourse.
“We, therefore, urge Ndi-Anambra and members of the public to completely ignore and disregard the publication in its entirety.”
