Jasminespice Nigeria reports that following the attack on the Presidential candidate of the Labour Party, LP, in the 2023 election by the incumbent governor of Anambra State, Professor Charles Soludo to the effect that Obi does not stand a chance to become Nigeria’s next president, Professor Fabian Ngozichukwu Chinedum Osuji, 80 , former Minister of Education in Nigeria from July 2003 till March 2005, has lashed out on governor Soludo, describing him as an ungrateful man who is out to desecrate the spirit of Umunna {kinsmen} and the Ndigbo brotherliness.In a piece that went viral on social media, the Anambra State Governor, had declared that the Labour Party presidential candidate, Peter Obi, cannot win the 2023 elections.
Soludo said Obi himself knew he could not win, adding that the LP standard bearer was only playing game.

I am thoroughly embarrassed about the level of hostility being exhibited by our brother and friend Prof Charles Soludo towards Peter Obi. He cannot claim to be self made. People like us participated in making him.
I was Pro-Chancellor and Chairman of Council at the University of Nigeria when his papers came for approval for Professorship. I could have found reason to withhold or deny assent .But we put him out and praised his work. That made President Obasanjo appoint him Economic Adviser without hesitation.
Three years later, three of us, Dr Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala, Oby Ezekwesili, and myself were attending a Conference in Brussels when President Obasanjo called Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala, who was Finance Minister, to ask for the nomination of Governor of Central Bank.

We gave a unanimous vote for Prof Charles Soludo. We were Ministers of Finance, Education, and Due Process.
As Ndigbo, we were proud to support our brother. He was not the sole candidate. Obasanjo gave him the position. Everyone rejoiced. That was the power of Umunna.
Years later, I cannot imagine the same person who benefited resoundingly from the support of Umunna being the one to pull down his own brother who is enjoying overwhelming support elsewhere. I am truly ashamed of him.
Ndigbo should not allow him to get away with this. He should be made to withdraw all his damaging statements against Obi.There is still time for him to reverse himself in this matter. Ndigbo must not allow him to get away with this,” Professor Fabian Osuji stated.
