Assembly Poll: Soludo Accuses Opposition of Using Old, Doctored Videos against Him

By Ikeugonna Eleke

Anambra State governor, Prof Chukwuma Soludo, has accused members of the opposition party of using both old and doctored videos to get at him.

Soludo who spoke through his press secretary, Christian Aburime, was reacting to two videos currently trending on the internet, where some youths, led by former commissioner, Christian Madubuko, made derogatory chants against APGA; and another where Soludo was purported to have said that he would not work with lawmakers from other political parties.

Aburime in his response to the first video said it was old, and was made during the regime of former governor, Chief Willie Obiano, when he had squabbles with the commissioner.

He said: ‘The video is old. It was made to spite Obiano then, and was not against the APGA led by Soludo. Right now, the same Madubuko is a part of our government, and has even made a press release clarifying that the video was not made under Soludo’s government, and that he supports the Soludo Government.’

Also reacting to the second video, Aburime said it was heavily doctored by members of the opposition party, just to spite the Governor.

‘Everyone knows that the governor is a pure democrat. He is ready to work with any member of the House of Assembly, even if they are elected from other political parties, so that is not true.

‘Members of the opposition have gone to high lengths to cause disaffection between Governor Soludo and the people of Anambra State, but they will not succeed.
