During an interview with Arise News, the president and national coordinator for the south-east group, Willy Ezugwu, reacted to the statement made by the governor of Anambra State to the LP presidential candidate, pointing out that most of them in the south-east are so angry at him for making the statement.
Willy Ezugwu stated that Soludo is truly the senior brother of Peter Obi, just as he has admitted, and added that it is quite unfortunate that a senior brother will speak against his own. Speaking further, he stated that he is not sure if it was jealousy or envy that made him make such comments.
According to him, “For the main fact that this is a state where the presidential candidate of the Labour Party came from and he is a governor of the state, I look at it as something you can call enviousness or jealousy.” Most of us from the Southeast are so angry at him for the statement he made. One reason is that if someone is ambitious, that’s not how to get there.
