Peter Obi and I are brothers…we will iron out our differences soon
Peter Obi and Charles Soludo met yesterday at Awka, Anambra State.
This was during a thanksgiving Mass for the 70th birthday of the Catholic Bishop of Awka Diocese, Most Rev. Paulinus Ezeokafor.
Recall that this was also the first time Peter and Soludo will be meeting after the controversial article about the Labout Party presidential aspirant, Mr Peter Obi.
Vanguards reports that before the commencement of the church service, Governor Soludo stepped out from the pew where he was sitting and walked up to where the LP presidential candidate was seated to greet him.

Speaking during the thanksgiving Mass, Soludo insisted that there is no quarrel between him and the former governor of the state, Mr. Peter Obi.
The governor said: “Let me tell you, we – (himself and Obi), spoke two times just last night. We are brothers. You know I’m not one of those politicians that speak from two sides of the mouth. I can’t pretend. I’m a politician, but also want to make heaven. I’ll keep saying the truth.

“There’s 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.
“On the fundamental differences we have, we are going to meet in the next few weeks. We’ve agreed to discuss and iron out our differences. Unfortunately, he’s left. We must get it done. Anambra is for all of us.”
