Chukwuma Soludo, governor of Anambra, has debunked a statement credited to him that a purported investment of Peter Obi, the presidential candidate of Labour Party, in the state has yielded returns.
Over the past few days, the claim which had been fact checked and debunked surfaced again on social media platforms, including one on a Facebook page titled, ‘Lamentations of A Bishop’, that Obi’s $20 million investment in Anambra has increased to $100 million.
Commenting on the post, Soludo maintained that he never made such a statement.
“Where did you read or hear me make such false statement? This fake news has been roundly debunked by my team. We can always carry on with campaigning for our preferred candidates without consciously misleading the reading public. This report is false and never emanated from me. Thank you.”
