Presidential candidate of the Labour Party (LP) for the 2023 general election, Peter Obi hit back at the Anambra State Governor, Chukwuma Soludo, who criticized him on Monday, November 14.


Obi in his counter attack, said Soludo is criticizing his presidential ambition in order because he is desperate to achieve fame.

Obi in a statement signed by the spokesperson of the Obi-Datti Presidential Campaign Organisation, Ndi Kato said he is not ready to comply with wishes of Soludo.

The Labour Party presidential flagbearer noted that he didn’t have the governor’s time, as he is on a mission to campaign a better Nigeria agenda to Nigerians.

Obi’s reaction follows an attack from the Anambra state governor yesterday.

Recall that Soludo stated reasons Obi will not win the 2023 general election in an article he titled ‘History beckons and I, will not be silent (Part 1).’

The former Anambra Governor said he is focused on reviving the lost glory of the country.

“We read with amusement and dismay, a very lengthy and belaboured treatise of an article, written by Professor Chukwuma Soludo, Governor of Anambra State, focused on our Presidential Candidate, His Excellency Peter Obi.

“It seems obvious that Professor Soludo is itching for the limelight, in this election season, perhaps fired up by possible understanding or alliance with our struggling political opponents.

“While we note the glaring fallacies, misrepresentations, personal insinuations and signs of personal vendetta in that long writeup, neither His Excellency Peter Obi, The Obi-Datti Presidential Campaign Organisation, nor the Labour Party, for that matter, has any interest in an extended engagement with Prof Soludo this critical time when there is a bigger fish to fry.

“His Excellency Peter Obi has his work well cut out for him, this campaign season.

“Primarily, he is accelerating his reach-out and influence to all Nigerians, rural and urban, in all areas, regions and states; and firmly engaging them, on his critical and visionary plans to take the country from consumption to production.


“In doing this, Mr Peter Obi is firmly placing the Youths, intensive Agricultural revolution, and revamping of critical areas of the economy as part of the focal points in the drive to turn around our fortunes and take back our country.


“We, the Youths, spreading across partisan political lines, have found reason to place the highest level of trust and confidence in HE Peter Obi, and we are committed to a continuing partnership with him, transparently, vigorously and creatively, to bring to fruition, the vital changes urgently required in this our country, of so much potential.

“We strongly believe that A New Nigeria is possible… and together with Peter Obi, we are working to make this a reality.

“This is our focus; this is our occupation.. and we shall not be distracted,” Kato said
