Soludo pays solidarity visit to Willie Obiano
The governor of Anambra State, Chukwuma Charles Soludo, has visited his predecessor, Chief Willie Obiano, who was arraigned in court on Wednesday over an allegation of committing fraud to the tune of N4 billion while he was governor.
Soludo, who visited Obiano in Abuja on Thursday, said he had a very useful discussion with the former governor.
He said that, by God’s grace, the travails of the former governor would be over.
Governor Soludo was accompanied by the National Chairman of the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA) Barrister Sly Ezeokenwa.
Speaking after the visit, Soludo said, “Today, and in the company of the APGA National Chairman, Barr Ezeokenwa Sly Jr, I paid a solidarity visit to my respected predecessor, Chief Willie Obiano, in Abuja. The two-hour chat was valuable time well spent. By His grace, this one too shall pass!”
Recall that Chief Willie Obiano after pleading not guilty to the nine charges of money laundering slammed against him by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, Justice Inyang Ekwo, the presiding judge ordered that the former governor should be restricted to the court jurisdiction.
He ordered the anti-graft agency to deposit the defendant’s travel documents with the court registrar.
Ekwo then ordered the registrar to notify the Nigerian Immigration Service of the development.
He subsequently adjourned the case till March 4,5,6 and 7 for continuation of trial.
