Peter Obi, the Labour Party’s candidate for president, and Prof. Charles Soludo, the governor of Anambra State, met on Thursday in the state’s capital city of Awka.
The two were seen hugging and mingling after first meeting at the Thanksgiving service for Most Rev. Paulinus C. Ezeokafor, who was celebrating his 70th birthday.
This occurs in the wake of criticism that followed Governor Soludo’s remarks about Obi’s aspirations for the presidency.
When Obi was governor, he invested money in the state, but according to Governor Soludo, it is now worth “next to nothing.”
He followed up with an article titled, “History Beckons and I will not be Silent (Part 1)” dismissing Obi’s chance of winning the 2023 presidential election.
Although, many are not expecting to see the two reunite anytime soon as several comments from Obi supporters labelled the Anambra governor as a traitor and one who “needs to focus on governance”.
