Jonathan, Soludo in secret talks

By Daniel Idonor

ABUJA—STILL basking in the euphoria of his historic victory at the Supreme Court, the People Democratic Party, PDP, flag bearer in the February 6, 2010 gubernatorial election in Anambra State, Professor Charles Soludo yesterday stormed Aso Rock where he met with Vice President Goodluck Jonathan behind closed doors.

Fielding questions from State House Correspondents after the meeting, an elated Soludo who refused to disclosed the details of discussion remarked that he remained unstoppable in his quest to serve Anambra State.

“There is a revolution, a liberation that is going on in Anambra and I think they know this movement is not stoppable and they thought the only way was to simply exclude us from running.

“The judgement signals a great day for democracy, a great day for this country and reaffirms our utmost confidence in the judiciary, especially the Supreme Court of Nigeria as the last hope of the common man,” he said.

According to him, “what was about to happen was certainly an aberration, where some candidates in the election felt that the only way they could stop me in the election was to go through the court  and stop Soludo from being a candidate, but thanked God that they did not succeed.

“But to the glory of God, God has spoken through the Supreme Court, that this is a divine mission and I believe that it will be accomplished. I remain eternally grateful to the Supreme Court and to the judiciary, for again coming to the aid of the weak.

“Campaign shall kick-off with much momentum and we shall get victory. The rank and file of the people of Anambra are rooting for us. The people of Anambra want a change, they don’t want to continue with the sense of hopelessness and helplessness that now pervades the state,” he added.
