Professor Charles Soludo who is the Anambra Governor has openly debunked the viral statement which was recently attributed to him that a $20 million investment by the presidential candidate of Labour Party (LP) Peter Obi in Anambra is now worth over $100million under his cabinet.
A Facebook page belonging to “Lamentations of a Bishop” had posted: “Mr. Peter Obi’s $20 million investment in Anambra worth $100 million today ~ Charles Chukwuma Soludo”
The now-deleted post, which did not state the source of the information amassed over 200 comments. Other followers circulated the post.
Commenting on the post, Soludo maintained that he never made such a statement while asking them not to drag others while marketing their candidates.
“Where did you read or hear me make such false statement? This fake news has been roundly debunked by my team. We can always carry on with campaigning for our preferred candidates without consciously misleading the reading public. This report is false and never emanated from me. Thank you,” the governor wrote.
The Governor had also recently described democracy in Nigeria as a continuous struggle for a better society.
Soludo, who spoke during a special mass at the Anambra Governor’s Lodge in Amawbia, in celebration of Democracy Day had stated that it is not only so in Nigeria, but all over the world, as democracy is the only form of government that guarantees a better society.
Soludo said: “Nation building is a consequence of struggle for class, both social and otherwise, and values such as focus, determination and perseverance are indispensable in this kind of struggle.
“There is no perfect society anywhere in the world, however, contestations and contradictions bring out the best in the society.
