Governor of Anambra state Chukwuma Soludo has received a stern warning from youths after advertising boards of Labour Party’s Presidential candidate Peter Obi were dismantled.
The Punch reported that the Coalition of South-East Youth Leaders (COSEYL) issued the threat on Thursday, January 19, 2023, and added that the governor should not disturb Obi’s campaign in the state.
COSEYL President General Goodluck Ibem and the publicity secretary, Okey Nwaoru
emphasized that the billboards were duly paid for by the candidate.
Part of the statement released by the socio-political youth group read:
“We give Governor Soludo 48 hours to replace those billboards of Mr Peter Obi and Senator Victor Umeh which he illegally removed or face the wrath of the youths.
“We warn Governor Soludo to remove the hand of the monkey from soap before it turns to the hand of a human being. Enough said!”
Meanwhile, the Labour Party had also protested against the removal of Obi’s campaign boards accusing Governor Soludo of displaying intolerance.
Hon. Eme Ugochukwu Emmanuel said that it is worrisome that billboards which were pulled down have a receipt of payment.
