Peter Obi, the Labour Party (LP) presidential candidate, has urged party candidates running for House of Assembly seats to brace themselves for victory.
This was stated by the former governor of Anambra State on Friday during a closed-door meeting with the house of assembly candidates in Awka.
Bellnewsonline.com reports that this comes after Governor Charles Soludo threatened members of his constituency not to vote for candidates other than those of the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA).
Soludo made the remarks while speaking to members of the Igbo-Uwku/Aguata 2 State Constituency.
Soludo stated that only APGA winners will have access to him and the opportunity to advise him.
Residents who vote for a candidate from a party other than the APGA, he claims, will only be entitled to a monthly salary.
Candidates from other parties who win will, according to Soludo, be unable to provide infrastructure to their constituents.
After the closed-door meeting, Peter Obi told journalists that the assembly candidates were advised to work with the state governor, Soludo if they won.
He went on to say that people should not be afraid of impeachment because LP is only trying to make things right in Nigeria.
We are not urging anyone to impeach any other person. We held a meeting with our assembly members, and we are calling on Nigerians to vote for Labour Party.
We are not asking anyone to impeach anyone. People should not be afraid of impeachment. We only seek to get things right in Nigeria.
