Professor Chukwuma Soludo, the governor ofe Anambra State, has been urged to perform better than he did while in office by Peter Obi, the Labour Party’s presidential candidate.

Obi reacted to some of the criticism he had been receiving from the current governor of Anambra in recent days by making this statement on Tuesday at the 2022 Lagos Business School Alumni Conference.

The LP candidate said:

“He (Soludo) remains my brother. For other things (that) I did not succeed, God has given him the opportunity to succeed. For me, you don’t finish governance. You stop where you stop and other people continue from there. He is the Governor of my state, he is my senior brother and he is even more intelligent than me because he is a professor and I am a trader.

“So he knows more, so he should be able to do things better than I am doing it. I have done my little own as a trader, now the professor is there, he should be able to do his own as a professor. The schools I didn’t roof, he will roof them, another person will do his own too.”

Last Thursday, Soludo had said that the investments of Obi in Anambra State are now “worth next to nothing” and has even gone ahead to dismiss Obi’s chances at the poll.

Last Thursday, Soludo claimed that Obi’s investments in Anambra State now are “worth next to nothing” and even dismissed Obi’s possibilities of winning the election.
