The Press Secretary to Anambra State Governor, Christian Aburime, has debunked reports that the Anambra State Governor, Professor Chukwuma Soludo, had directed members of the All Progressives Grand Alliance, APGA, in the state to work against the ambition of Mr Peter Obi of Labour Party.
Aburime described the report with the headline as fallacious and an attempt to misinform the people.
The statement released read: “We note with disdain the fallacious and distasteful publication of a write-up with the above heading by faceless individual(s).
“We would have chosen to ignore this mischievous and utterly despicable publication, but for the benefit of a few innocent Ndi Anambra who could be misinformed by the write up.”
The statement further read: “Governor Chukwuma Soludo, only held a private meeting with his party members of the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA). This meeting is a routine gathering where issues concerning APGA are discussed.
“At no time during the meeting was, Mr Peter Obi, a point of discourse.
“It is pertinent to note that issues discussed at the meeting were purely issues relating to APGA affairs.
“We therefore urge Ndi-Anambra and members of the general public to completely ignore and disregard the publication in all its entirety.”
