The Nation reported that the LP flag bearer lambasted Soludo, saying the Anambra state governor is desperate for the limelight, a desire he is unwilling to meet.

He reiterated that he is focused on galvanizing support for the task of redeeming Nigeria from the precipice, rather than responding to the fallacies contained in Soludo’s article.

“It seems obvious that Professor Soludo is itching for limelight, in this election season, perhaps fired up by possible understanding or alliance with our struggling political opponents.
