Anambra State Governor, Chukwuma Soludo CFR, and former governor Peter Obi met at St. Patrick’s Cathedral Awka during the Thanksgiving mass for Most Rev. Paulinus C. Ezeokafor in celebration of his 70th birthday.
Just before the mass started, Governor Soludo stepped out from his pew and walked over to where the presidential candidate was seated to greet him, welcoming him to the Capital city.
The two met at a thanksgiving mass in line with the 70th birthday celebration of Paulinus Ezeokafor, a reverend, at St. Patrick’s Cathedral in Awka, Anambra.
Their meeting comes days after Soludo, through an article, said Peter Obi cannot win in the 2023 elections.
Even amid so many political disagreements, they both understand they are Ndi-Anambra.
In response to Soludo’s article where he criticized Obi’s administration as governor, Obi said he is just a trader, while Soludo, a professor, can do better than him.
Speaking at the 2022 Lagos Business School (LBS) alumni conference, Obi said government is a continuum, and as such, Soludo can do better for the state since he is now in office.
“For other things which I didn’t succeed, God has given him opportunity to do it and succeed. For me, if there is anything pending, governance doesn’t finish. You stop where you stop; other people will continue from there.
“He is a governor of my state; my senior brother. He’s even more intelligent than me. He is a professor; I’m a trader. So, he will be able to do things more than I have done it.”
