A South East youth based group, Coalition of South East Youth Leaders, COSEYL, has condemned the Anambra State governor, Prof. Chukwuma Soludo for his attack on the presidential candidate of Labour Party (LP), Mr Peter Obi.
COSEYL in a press release signed by its president general, Mr Goodluck Ibem said that Soludo through his utterances on Obi has denigrated the entire Igbo land and must be made to pay for it.
The group in the release said: “Our members have met over the unfortunate and unguided statement by the Soludo over Mr. Peter Obi and have decided to bring him back to his senses by declaring Friday 25 November, 2022 as a day where all Anambrarians will carry their refuse, debris and dump them at the gate of Anambra State Government House.
“This will serve as deterrent to other Igbo political office holders who might want to insult the sensibility of the Igbo nation.”
The group while analysing the comment by Soludo on Obi said it want the entire world to know that Soludo’s unguided statement against Peter Obi is his personal opinion and not the opinion of his own family.
“His own biological son said Peter Obi is the best Presidential candidate which is contrary and directly opposite to his father’s statement.
“Governor Soludo is standing alone on his attack against Peter Obi and any one who might have paid him for such a hatchet job should go and collect his money back from him because his statement does not hold any water whosoever.”
It further stated that dumping refuse in the house of anyone who committed sacrilege against his people is a traditional way of disciplining and teaching lessons to anyone found wanting in Igbo land.
It added that the statement by Soludo and the audacity with which he spoke against Mr. Peter Obi the Labour Party Presidential candidate portrayed him as a man who felt that he is above God and Anambra people who elected him as governor.
“It is very unfortunate that Anambrians elected a misfit with the title of a Professor as governor and the error has to be corrected immediately.
“Without mincing words, Soludo insulted the sensibility of Anambra State and the entire Igbo nation by his misguided statement against Mr. Peter Obi. Soludo just confirmed to the world that he lacks common sense.
“Four years is too long to wait for a man who has no vision to lead the good people of Anambra State that have enough intelligent people both home and abroad. It will be on Insult on Ndi Anambra to wait for 4 years for Soludo to complete his tenure which was given to him by the people.
“Anambra State House of Assembly members should do the right thing by impeaching Governor Charles Soludo immediately. Anambra is too blessed to have such a character as governor.
“We call on the Speaker and the entire members of Anambra State House of Assembly to immediately start the process of Soludo’s impeachment process in other to save Anambra people of this national embarrassment by a supposed Professor,” the group said.
