Soludo’s kinsmen condemn his attack on Obi


Some people identified as kinsmen of Prof. Chukwuma Soludo, the governor of Anambra State have condemned his recent attack on the Presidential candidate of Labour Party, Mr Peter Obi.

Some voice notes made available to THE RAZOR from a WhatsApp group of members of Isuofia community resident in Lagos State, showed the lamentation of the kinsmen, over the recent attack.

Soludo hails from Isuofia Community in Aguata Local Government Area of Anambra State.

In the voice notes which were made without the attachment of their names, a source from Isuofia, who is also a member of the forum said the members of the WhatsApp group have all condemned the governor’s utterances in unison.

Some of the men in their voice notte regretted that despite all their support and mobilisation for Soludo in the last governorship election, he has turned around to refer to them as a headless mob.

In one of the voice notes,the man said: “Was it not at Civic Centre Isuofia that we started mobilizing support for our brother to become governor? Till today, he has not come to say thank you to us, the only payment he is offering us is to say that we are mobs. It is this same mob that voted him in as governor.”

In another voice note, one of the men said that in Lagos where he lives, people usually refer to him as brother of the governor, because he hails from Isuofia.

“I used to feel proud anytime they called me the governor’s brother, but these days, people see me as a saboteur, just because of what our brother Soludo said.

“One of my neighbour, a Yoruba man once told me that Obi is good, but the bad thing is that if they decide to support him, it is his own brothers that will pull him. I feel so bad that the man has now been vindicated.”

Yet another, also in a voice not said: “My oga’s father who I lived with while I was serving my master used to say that passing six is not passing sense, and our brother Soludo has confirmed it. He has shown that being educated does not necessarily mean that you are wise. My heart bleeds over that attack. Up till this moment, I have not been able to read the essay by the governor to the end.”

There have been several condemnation of Governor Soludo, over his recent attacks on Obi.

Many said that what was heartrending was that there was no provocation whatsoever from Obi, to warrant such attack on him by Soludo.
