Anambra State Governor, Chukwuma Soludo, has denied reports that he met with Bola Ahmed Tinubu at the Imo State Government House to discuss how to stop the Labour Party (LP) presidential candidate, Mr. Peter Obi, from pursuing the process to reclaim his mandate through the courts.
Tinubu was declared the winner of the Feb. 25 Presidential election by the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC.
Reports had emerged that a helicopter allegedly flew into Awka by 1:30am on Sunday, March 5, and took Soludo to a secret meeting at the Imo State Government House in Owerri.
Details of the said meeting were unknown but it was alleged that Tinubu was said to be expressing concern about the growing popularity of Obi and solicited the help of Soludo to find a solution.
However, in his reaction, Soludo, through his Press Secretary, Christian Aburime, said the allegations were false and disgusting.
Aburime, in a statement made available to journalists in Awka, on Monday, March 6, said, “The general public is advised to disregard the allegations.”
“If certain people could sit somewhere and cook up a story of this nature, it becomes highly reprehensible and certainly deserves to be condemned by every right-thinking person.”
