Some major national dailies had reported yesterday that the former number one banker was among the top aspirants battling for the ticket of the All Progressives Grand Alliance(APC) to contest for the position.
But Soludo in a reaction to the story said he was not even a member of the party, let alone gunning for the governorship ticket of the party.
His reaction read, “My attention has been drawn to a publication in which the state chairman of the party was reported to have listed my name among those contesting for the party’s nomination for the Anambra governorship election.
“Since the said publication, I have received hundreds of calls, texts and emails seeking clarification on the matter. I also sought and obtained the phone number of the said state chairman and spoke to him in order to ascertain the veracity of the story, and he confirmed to me that he was mis-reported.
“Consequently, I wish to clarify that I am not a member of the All Progressives Congress (APC) and could therefore not be contesting for its party nomination.”
