The Anambra State was accused by the Labour Party of pulling down the billboards of its candidates across the state.

The group statement read in part, “We have waited for some days hoping that Governor Soludo will come back to his senses and correct himself of such great dishonour against Ndigbo but he has not corrected himself.

“The illegal action by Governor Charles Soludo to remove campaign billboards of these noble candidates because they are not in his political party is unconstitutional and undemocratic to say the least.

“We are aware that why Governor Soludo is after Mr Peter Obi and Senator Victor Umeh is because these two personalities represent integrity, sincerity and transparency which is in variant to what Soludo believes in.

“The actions of Governor Soludo clearly shows that he ventured into politics because of his selfish desire to corruptly enrich himself from taxes paid by Anambra people which is why he is disturbed anytime he sees the billboards of these men of integrity and transparency.

“We give Governor Soludo 48 hours to replace those billboards of Mr. Peter Obi and Senator Victor Umeh which he illegal removed or face the wrath of the youths.

“It is quite unfortunate that only the democracy dividends of Governor Soludo is to insult the sensibility of Ndigbo and what Ndigbo stands for. He is also at the opposing side of Igbos integrity and always does directly opposite of what he says.

“Mr Peter Obi and Senator Victor Umeh represent light and no antics of anti-democratic forces like Governor Soludo will stop that light from shinning for the good of all Nigerians.

“We warn Governor Soludo to remove the hand of the monkey from soup before it turns to the hand of a human being. Enough said.”
