The All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA) in Anambra state has said it has uncovered a plot by those it described as ‘political jobbers’ to Implicate Governor Charles Soludo of receiving the sum of $28 million as a bribe from Gov Hope Uzodimma of Imo state to run down the Presidential candidate of the Labour Party, Mr. Peter Obi before the 2023 election.
Following Gov. Soludo’s recent contributions regarding Peter Obi’s ambition, the APGA party says that someone claiming to be an investigative journalist by the name of TK Ekwudayo has contacted to publish fake and baseless articles in order to implicate and put Gov. Soludo in a negative light.
Uchenna Chukwuka, the national coordinator of the APGA Renaissance, told media in Awka, Anambra state.
“It has come to the notice of this body that some faceless and sponsored elements masquerading as investigative Journalist claiming false insider information from the All Progressives Congress, APC, are out to implicate our able governor Prof Charles Soludo with some baseless and false allegations of receiving the sum of $28 Million to run down the Presidential candidate of the Labour Party, Mr. Peter Obi”
“Also, the faceless self-acclaimed investigative Journalist further alleged that both Uzodimma and Soludo have already extorted the sum of N10 billion as the first trench of the payment while the sum of N10 Billion would be paid after he had concluded the second assignment “
In the light of the above, it has become instructive that we make the following resolutions for the purposes of clarity and brevity.
“That the said investigative Journalist does not exist and is hiding under the guise of a fake name to justify the payment by their sponsors who do not see anything good in Gov Charles Soludo”
“The author of this spurious report and allegations is only being clever by half by linking the APC governor in the South East with his satanic report in order to give their story acceptability before the reading public “
“That the person of an international status, and an eminent person in the mould of Gov Charles Soludo is more occupied in giving good and populist governance to the people of Anambra state than reducing the office of a governor to that of a pedestrian blackmailer”
The group further contended that the manner and recent practice of and stock in trade of the so-called supporters of the Labour Party in adopting the Nazist style of ‘Hitler Mob’ is more of their cutting off their noses to spite their faces and ultimately burn their fingers and de- marketing their candidates.
