Peter Obi, the Labour Party’s (LP) presidential candidate, says he will confer with Anambra State Governor Chukwuma Soludo on solutions to Nigeria’s problems.
Obi stated this during a meeting with the Nigerian Guild of Editors on Monday at the Protea Hotel in Ikeja, Lagos State’s metropolis.
“He (Soludo) knows and he has the solution so I need to consult him to help me,” Obi said of the Anambra governor whom he fondly referred to as his brother.
The LP candidate also vowed to follow Bangladesh’s 35% Affirmative Action approach, adding that he would create an environment in which 50% of Nigerian women would be involved in its National Productivity Programme.
Soludo, a former governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria, and Obi, the governor of Anambra from 2006 to 2014, have recently clashed about the state of the Anambra economy.
Obi’s investments in government, according to Soludo, are worth next to nothing.
The All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA) chieftain also said Peter Obi can’t win the 2023 presidential election as there are “two persons/parties seriously contesting for president”.
Peter Obi, on the other hand, said that he had done his part as governor of Anambra and urged Soludo to do his best in the state as an economics professor.
