The camp of the presidential candidate of the Labour Party, Peter Obi has reacted to the outbursts of the Governor of Anambra State, Charles Soludo against their candidate.
Recall that Soludo had in an article on Friday, dismissed Obi’s chances of winning the election next year.
He had also claimed that Obi added to the poverty in the state when he became governor.
Reacting to Soludo’s article, the spokesman for Labour Party Presidential Campaign Council, Yunusa Tanko, said Soludo was being used by the opposition against Obi.
He said, “Soludo feels he is larger than life and that if it is not him, it should not be anybody. But God has chosen Obi and there is nothing he can do about it. He should just go and lick his wounds.
“The fact still remains that it is Obi on the ballot. He does not have the capacity to determine whether Obi will win or not. As we are seeing it, Obi is winning a landslide victory.
“Soludo is just allowing himself to be used. It is an orchestrated attempt to weaken our own base starting from Anambra to other states in the South East. That was the strategy.
“I don’t know why he is trying to risk everything he has for this particular negative cause. But we will rely on the love that would be shown by Obi’s people to triumph during our campaign there.”
