NewsNigeriaPoliticsOzonna Soludo Disagrees with His Father, Says Peter Obi is the Best Candidate

Hours after Professor Chukwuma Soludo, the governor of Anambra State, dismissed Labour Party’s Peter Obi chances at the 2023 polls, his son, Ozonna Soludo, declared his support for Obi.

In response to critics who attacked him for saying that the value of Obi’s investments in Anambra is worth nothing during a TV interview, Soludo on Monday wrote a lengthy essay wherein he overtly dismissed Obi’s presidential ambition, saying he can’t win.

“Let’s be clear: Peter Obi knows that he can’t and won’t win. He knows the game he is playing, and we know too; and he knows that we know,” the governor wrote.

“The game he is playing is the main reason he didn’t return to APGA. The brutal truth (and some will say, God forbid) is that there are two persons/parties seriously contesting for president: the rest is exciting drama!”

Soludo continued, “Indeed, there is no credible pathway for him near the first two positions, and if care is not taken, he won’t even near the third position. Analysts tell him you don’t need “structure” to win. Fantasy!

“The polls also show that he is taking votes away mostly from PDP. Indeed, if I were Asiwaju Tinubu, I would even give Peter Obi money as someone heading one of the departments of his campaign because Obi is making Tinubu’s pathway to victory much easier by indirectly pulling down PDP. It is what it is!”

Soludo’s views triggered angry reactions from the supporters of the LP presidential candidate, christened Obidients.

In an attempt to drag his 28-year-old son, Ozonna into the conversation criticising his father’s opposition of Obi’s candidacy, the UK-based artiste said though he does not want to be dragged into the discussion, he prefers Obi to other candidates.

“I would appreciate not being dragged into this. I am not an extension of anybody. I have my own opinions and have always said I think Peter is the best candidate. All this has nothing to do with me,” he wrote.
