Anambra State Governor, Prof. Chukwuma Soludo has accused members of the opposition party of using both old and doctored videos to blackmail him.
The Governor who spoke through his Press Secretary, Comrade Christian Aburime was reacting to two videos currently trending on the internet, where some youths, led by former Commissioner, Dr. Christian Madubuko made derogatory chants against APGA, and another where Prof. Soludo was purported to have said that he will not work with lawmakers from other political parties.
Comrade Aburime in his response to the first video said it was old, and was made during the regime of former administration, when he had squabbles with the administration.
The Press Secretary said: “The video is old. It was made to spite the last administration then, and was not against the APGA led by Governor Soludo.
“Right now, the same Dr. Madubuko is a part of our government, and has even made a press release clarifying that the video was not made under Prof. Soludo government, and that he supports the Soludo government.”
Also reacting to the second video, Comrade Aburime said: “That video is heavily ‘doctored’ by members of the opposition party, just to spite the Governor.
“Everyone knows that the Governor is a pure democrat. He is ready to work with any member of the House of Assembly, even if they are elected from other political party, so that is not true.
“Members of the opposition have gone to high length to cause disaffection between the Governor and the people of Anambra State, but they will not succeed.
“Anambra is APGA State, and the people are happy with the performance of the Governor so far, and they are ready to vote for APGA candidates in the forthcoming election.”
