I did my bit, do yours – Obi tells Soludo

The presidential candidate of the Labour Party (LP), Peter Obi, has said he wishes that Anambra State Governor Chukwuma Soludo will surpass his achievements.

Recall that last week, Soludo had claimed Obi’s investments for Anambra when he was the governor were not worth much presently.

In response to a backlash from the presidential candidate’s supporters, Soludo authored an article in which he further criticized Obi’s administration.

Soludo, in the article titled ‘History beckons and I, will not be silent (Part 1)’, said poverty doubled under Obi.

The governor wondered whether the ‘savings’ were warranted when there were dozens of schools without roofs or classrooms, local governments without access roads, or hospitals without doctors/nurses.

“Governments exist to save lives, not to save money…

“Poverty more than doubled under Peter Obi and more than 50 percent of Ndi Anambra were in poverty under him. Go and verify!,” Soludo said.

But, speaking at the Lagos Business School Alumni Conference, Obi said one of his investments employs over 10,000 people.

Obi said: “He is the governor of the state; he is my senior brother. He is even more intelligent than me because he is a professor. I am a trader, so he knows more and will be able to do things better than I am doing it.

“I have done my little bit as a trader, now the professor is there he will do his own as a professor.

“The schools I didn’t roof, he will roof them. That’s how the government goes.

“The one they said is worthless, we invested N3.5 billion in International Breweries …that facility is there employing directly and indirectly over 10,000 Anambarians,” he said.
