Peter Obi, the Labour Party’s (LP) presidential candidate, says he will confer with Chukwuma Soludo, the governor of Anambra State, about how to address Nigeria’s problems.
Obi said this at a meeting with the Nigerian Guild of Editors on Monday at the Protea Hotel in Ikeja, the capital of Lagos State.
“He (Soludo) knows and he has the solution so I need to consult him to help me,” Obi said of the Anambra governor whom he fondly referred to as his brother.
The LP candidate added that he would foster an environment where 50% of Nigerian women would be included in its National Productivity Programme as part of his pledge to embrace the Bangladesh model of 35% Affirmative Action.
Recently, arguments concerning the status of the Anambra economy have taken place between Obi, the former governor of Anambra and Soludo, the incumbent governor.
The investments Obi made in the government, according to Soludo, are practically worthless.
Additionally, the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA) chieftain claimed that Obi cannot win the 2023 presidential election since “two persons/parties are truly contesting for president.”
However responding to comments from the governor, Obi challenged Soludo to succeed in the areas he failed.
