Chukwuma Soludo, Governor of Anambra State, has denied taking a bribe to publicly attack Labour Party (LP) presidential candidate Peter Obi.
He claims that if he had accepted the offer, he would have been a trillionaire.
Soludo penned a lengthy piece last week in which he argued Obi will never be elected President of Nigeria.
He also claimed that Obi’s investment in Anambra is now nearly worthless.
Obi, in response, claimed he was a trader while Soludo was a professor and should do better in the state.
However, Soludo and Obi met at St. Patrick’s Catholic Church on Thursday during the Thanksgiving mass conducted for Most Rev. Paulinus C. Ezeokafor.
The two men were seen embracing each other while exchanging pleasantries.
Soludo insisted there was no rift between him and Obi, only political differences.
“There is no rift between Obi and me at a personal level. Nobody snatched each other’s wife. What appears to be the rift between us is fundamental political differences. Nothing else.
“So for those forging blackmail and all that, including the one they said I collected bribe to say what I said, I asked them to bring it so I will use it to construct roads. If Soludo is into bribery, I would have been a multi-trillionaire now,” Soludo explained.
