Our attention has been drawn to the above false article concocted by the opposition, wherein they alleged that Soludo “declares Anambra a Catholic State”.

1). Prof Chukwuma Soludo was not in any such meeting with the Catholic Youth Organisations of Nigeria (CYON). Those who claim otherwise should furnish ndi Anambra with necessary evidence.

2). Again, we must restate that in all of Soludo’s engagements with the Clergy and members of religious organisations, he has centred discussions around his planned policies and programmes.

3). It is on record that Soludo is the only Candidate who has consulted with all Christian denominations in the State, and has sold his agenda to them.

4). A month ago, he was with the Pentecostal Fellowship of Nigeria ( PFN) on their “2021 Prayer Rally” to pray for Anambra State. And just last Saturday, he was at the Holy Trinity Anglican Church, Igboezunu Aguleri to honour the invitation of His Lordship, the Rt. Reverend Paul Udogu (Bishop of Afikpo Diocese) who turned 50.

5). Recall, that at the Church service, the Archbishop, Metropolitan and Primate of the Anglican Church, His Grace, the Most Rev’d Henry Chukwudum Ndukuba, led other Bishops of the Church — Serving and Retired — on a dedicated prayer Session for Prof. Soludo. For a Man who enjoyed this rare privilege that has ostensibly ruffled the opposition, anything can be said to malign him.

6). Soludo’s immediate younger brother— Pastor (Dr) Ogochukwu Soludo is a pastor and GO of his own church.

7). SOLUDO is known for his public stance on ecumenism— the unity of the Christian church. As CBN Governor, he was the Secretary of fundraising committee for building the National Ecumenical Centre, Abuja. Indeed, there’s no other candidate who preaches the unity of the church of God.

8). He insists that the challenge of building a livable and prosperous state has nothing to do with one’s religious denomination. He keeps asking whether there’s a Catholic, or Anglican or Pentecostal way of tarring a road or teaching mathematics or guaranteeing 24 hours electricity etc.

9). Soludo’s record of public service shows that he cares about excellence irrespective of where you come from or how you worship. No wonder he is the only candidate endorsed by all denominations of the Christian church.

10). This has riled the opposition especially the one who wants the election to be about denominations because he has nothing to offer Ndi Anambra. They have therefore resorted to fabricating fake news but they have failed as Ndi Anambra can’t wait to experience the SOLUDO Solution.

11). Again, Soludo is a strong believer in Christian unity (Ecumenism), and his family accommodates all shades of Christian faith as exemplified by his younger brother who is an ordained Pastor in a Pentecostal church.

12). Soludo would, therefore, not for any reason speak vile of any sect of the body of Christ.

We urge our supporters to dismiss the evil propaganda of the opposition being peddled around by one Cyril Nwokafor — a faceless hatchet writer.

May God continue to expose the true enemies of the Church as we remain united as one in the body of Christ Jesus!
