Governor Chukwuma Soludo says the Labour Party’s flag bearer, Peter Obi may win the February 25, 2023, presidential election in Anambra State.
He, however, doubted the chances of his predecessor to win the overall presidential election next month.
“I wish Peter Obi the best of luck. Let him go and compete as others,” Soludo said on Channels Television Thursday.
“We (APGA) are also competing in the same race. We have our own candidate (Peter Umeadi), who is also son of the soil, coincidentally from Anambra State as well, and he will do his own bit, get his own votes.”
The governor referred to his piece in November 2022 where he said though Obi might win in Anambra but won’t win the overall presidential election.
“In that piece, I even considered that Peter Obi might win in Anambra State. I did mention that,” he said but doubted the possibility of the LP presidential candidate to win the overall election.
Soludo, the new national leader of the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA), also said he has given Obi all the support a state government can offer to a former governor like Obi, who was in office between 2006 and 2014.
The Anambra governor said he has been fair to all parties campaigning in the state and has not denied them state facilities to use for rallies.
