“I have it on good authority that the antagonism against the Labor Party’s presidential candidate, Mr. Peter Obi, has been taken to the highest level by the Soludo government.
“Billboards reflecting the images of Peter Obi and other Labor Party candidates are being dismantled. This goes against the spirit of live and live.
“We have been hit with outrageous charges to discourage us from projecting the image of Mr. Peter Obi in the state. We paid for billboards in obedience to a government order.”
“Our request to mount mini billboards on street light poles was rejected, but it is clear that the same billboards of candidates from other parties are being erected on the same poles. Not even that of the APGA candidates, but that of other political parties.
“We wonder why the Labor Party presidential candidate and other LP candidates are being recklessly punished by the leadership of the Anambra State government, led by Professor Chukwuma Soludo. We condemn this act in its entirety. It is unacceptable”.
Ndi Anambra was happy when Soludo won the gubernatorial election
Furthermore, the party said that the people of Anambra were happy when Soludo was appointed governor, hoping that his leadership would grow the state.
“Unfortunately, it is becoming obvious that the expectation is largely misplaced. This deliberate act has fired Soludo and all the APGA candidates, and has further strengthened the prospect of Obi and other Labor Party candidates to achieve success in the next elections.”
Earlier, Mr. Tony Ujubuonu, Managing Director of Anambra State Signaling Agency, had explained that the party was unable to meet the conditions of the state government, the billboards were removed and the payments returned to the party.
Meanwhile, at the time of writing, the Labor Party billboards in all dismantled areas have been replaced by those of the Governor’s party, APGA.
