THE Anambra State Governor, Professor Charles Soludo has carpeted one of his predecessors who is the Presidential candidate of the Labour Patty (LP), Peter Obi over his claim of viable investment in the state when he was the governor.
Soludo said Obi’s investment is next to nothing in the state.
One of the points Obi, presidential candidate of the Labour Party, has been using to sell himself to the electorate is the investments he made when he governed Anambra from 2006 to 2014.
But speaking during an interview on Channels Television’s Politics Today, Soludo shot down talks of Obi’s investment.
He said, “I don’t know about the investment. Our interview is about the 2023 budget. I’m not talking about the investments of any of my predecessors. By the way, the one that you talked about I don’t know about that.

“I think there was something I read about somebody speculating about whatever investment. With what I’ve seen today, the value of those investments is worth next to nothing. So, let’s leave that aside.”
Soludo, who had earlier presented the N258.97 billion 2023 budget to the state assembly, added that more than 5,000 teachers in the state would get their employment letters in a few days.
“We are handing out employment letters to more than 5, 000 teachers to end an era of schools without teachers. We are going to have over 240 doctors and consultants to man our general hospitals, so if you look at the five fingers approach of our programmes, we designed our budget to keep our eyes on the ball.”
“I think there was something I read about somebody speculating about whatever investment. With what I’ve seen today, the value of those investments is worth next to nothing. So, let’s leave that aside,” the governor said.
