Poverty Increased Drastically Under Peter Obi in Anambra - Soludo
In his long epistle to Peter Obi and his 'Obedient" crew, the incumbent governor of Anambra State, Charles Soludo has said that poverty in the state during Obi's tenure grew drastically despite the oil boom.
Charles made the claim to counter the 'fake stat' usually peddle by the Obi supporters.
Funny, in the rabid frenzy to grab every straw, they cut a clip during our governorship debate where I was stating vital statistics and they claimed that I was “praising” Peter Obi then while committing a crime now by “criticising” him. Hahahaha! Well, it is true that I said during the debate that, according to National Bureau of Statistics, poverty in Anambra actually grew (from less than 25% in 2005) to about 53% under Peter Obi in 2010/2011 but fell under Willie Obiano to 14.78% in 2020. Yes, poverty more than doubled under Peter Obi and more than 50% of Ndi Anambra were in poverty under him. Go and verify! I am Governor, and sitting on privileged information which I will not want to use against a political opponent. But on matters of facts, I will always state same as is. As the saying goes, you can fool some of the people some of the time but never all the people all the time. Enough said for now!
