What APGA said
Chukwuka told journalists:
“It has come to the notice of this body that some faceless and sponsored elements masquerading as investigative Journalist claiming false insider information from the All Progressives Congress, APC, are out to implicate our able governor Prof Charles Soludo with some baseless and false allegations of receiving the sum of $28 Million to run down the Presidential candidate of the Labour Party, Mr Peter Obi.
“Also the faceless self-acclaimed investigative Journalist further alleged that both Uzodimma and Soludo have already extorted the sum of N10 billion as the first trench of the payment while the sum of N10 Billion would be paid after he had concluded the second assignment.”
He said the Journalist in question is fake, bears a phoney name, does not exist and should not be taken seriously.
