The Ohanaeze Ndigbo said it has dragged the governor of Anambra State, Charles Soludo, before two Igbo deities for making degrading statements against the presidential candidate of the Labour Party, Peter Obi.
In a statement signed by its secretary-seneral, Okechukwu Isiguzoro, on Tuesday, the apex Igbo group said Mr Soludo’s statement was a confirmation that he is an enemy of the new Nigeria project.
He accused the governor of doing the bidding of an unpopular candidate to pull down Mr Obi.
“Ndigbo have dragged Governor Soludo to the two famous divinities and deities (Chokoleze in Mbaise and Ubiniukpabi in Arochuku) for his unreasonable public behaviour.
“Governor Soludo’s actions are ridiculous, unreasonable and premature; there was no locus for the Governor’s outburst and the sanctions against Soludo to face Igbo deities will serve as a deterrent to South-East politicians who have been hired by enemies of Ndigbo and Nigerians to derail the Obi’s presidency in 2023.
