The Labour Party (LP) Presidential candidate, Peter Obi says he will consult with Governor Charles Soludo of Anambra State, on solutions to tackle Nigeria’s numerous challenges.

He spoke on Monday, Nov. 21 during a meeting with the Nigerian Guild of Editors at Protea Hotel in Ikeja, Lagos State.

Obi said Soludo knows ways to solve the problems facing the country which is why he would have consultations with him.

The former Anambra governor said; “He (Soludo) knows and he has the solution so I need to consult him to help me.”

Meanwhile, the LP candidate had earlier urged Governor Charles Soludo of Anambra state to continue the work of governance, saying he has done his own part as a former governor of the state.

Obi stated this at the Lagos Business School (LBS) Alumni Conference 2022 while reacting to Soludo’s comments that the investments he left in government have depreciated in value.

In the article Soludo released on Monday, he said; “My attention has been drawn to some of the tirades on social media following my frank response during an interview on Channels TV regarding the “investments” Mr Peter Obi claimed to have made with Anambra state revenues.”

Reacting, the LP presidential candidate said; “He (Soludo) remains my brother, we are very close. I remain prayerful for him. For other things which I didn’t succeed, God has given him opportunity to do it and succeed.

“So, if there is anything pending, governance doesn’t finish, people are still in government in America, so you stop where you will stop, other people will continue from there.

“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 own 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 government goes.”
