Soludo was quoted saying a $20 million investment by Obi, on behalf of the state, is now worth $100million.
Anambra Governor Charles Soludo has debunked reports quoting him as saying that a former governor Peter Obi left a $20 million investment which is now worth $100million.
Soludo reacted on Facebook.
He said the report is fake news.
“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”, he wrote.
The comment credited to Soludo was similar to the one Obi, his predecessor, made in an interview in August 2018.
“Tomorrow they are commissioning Sagamu building – the biggest brewery in Africa.
“Anambra state is the single-highest shareholder in that facility. I invested in it over $20 million. It is almost worth $100m today”, he said.
Obi is the presidential candidate of the Labour Party (LP) for the 2023 election.
