The Labour Party (LP) Youth leader in Anambra State, Hon Ekene Nnadi, have taken a swipe at the State governor, Chukwuma Soludo, over his position on the presidential ambition of his predecessor and candidate of the Labour Party (LP) in the 2023 presidential election, Mr Peter Obi, saying the former is educated but not Intelligent.
He accused Governor Soludo of being envious of the surging acceptability and rising political profile of the LP presidential candidate, insisting Ndigbo and most Nigerians are united on LP presidential candidacy.
The Paradise News had earlier reported that Soludo had, last weekend, shocked political watchers when he declared that the LP presidential candidate does not have the capacity and clout to win next year’s poll, claiming that facts on the ground showed that the contest will be a two-horse race.
Hon. Nnadi in an interview with newsmen after the Anambra State Labour Party Youth Wing summit in Awka on Sunday, while reacting to the comment and write-up of Soludo expressed disappointed stating that Peter Obi remains the best candidates amongst others contesting for the sit of the president.
In his words “There’s a difference between being educated and Intelligent. Governor Soludo is educated but not Intelligent. He lacks character. We igbos are republican people. We voted for Obasanjo and Yaradua.
“Peter Obi is not an igbo project. Amongst the presidential candidates, both psychologically, mentally, physically, Obi is more qualified than others. This is why Afenifere lead by Pa Adebanjo based on equity and fairness, agreed that they will support Obi.
“What Nigeria needs is someone that is competent. Someone that will change the condition of this nation and that person is Peter Obi.
“Peter Obi has never appeared before the Economic and Financial Crime Commission (EFCC). In terms of his anticedent, he is more qualified than other presidential candidate.
“On behalf of Labour Party Youth in Anambra state, we Condemn totally the attack on Peter Obi. The youths are the future of this nation. What Peter Obi is fighting for is for our future. We have to do everything possible to vote him into power”
