Gov. Charles Soludo Denies receiving $28m To Blackmail Peter Obi

Prof. Charles Soludo, governor of Anambra State, has denied the allegation that he collected $28 million to blackmail Labour Party presidential candidate Peter Obi.

Soludo made this remark to reporters in Awka after the Thanksgiving mass for Most Rev. Paulinus C. Ezeokafor, who was celebrating his 70th birthday at St. Patrick’s Catholic Church.

He, “If I had truly received $28 million to blackmail my brother, Peter Obi, I should be extremely wealthy as of today.

“For those forging blackmail and all that, including the one they said I collected bribe to say what I said, I asked them to bring it so I will use it to construct roads for Anambra people. If Soludo is into bribery, I would have been a multi-trillionaire now.

“Today is very special. When we came into the service, it was the first time, Obi and I are meeting at a public event and in a Catholic Church which the two of us belong to. I think it was divine.

“When I came in, I quickly went to where he sat and hugged him, people watched with bewilderment as if it was a drama, asking if it was not the same people quarrelling,” he added.

Speaking about his tirade on Obi, Soludo simply said it is political, adding that he spoke with Obi about two times just last night.

The Anambra governor said politics has not crept into their relationship as brothers.

He said, “There is no rift between Obi and me at a personal level. Nobody snatched each other’s wife. What appears to be the rift between us is fundamental political differences. Nothing else.

“On the fundamental differences we have, we are going to meet in the next few weeks. We’ve agreed to discuss and iron out our differences,” he added.
