Ozonna, son of the governor of Anambra State, has urged Nigerians not to link him with his father’s negative utterances against Labour Party’s presidential candidate, Mr Peter Obi.
Soludo last week said investments made by Obi when he was governor of Anambra State ‘were next to nothing’. Yesterday, he wrote again that Obi ‘can’t win’ the 2023 presidential election.
Ozonna, a music star, responded to a mail sent to him by one Nnamdi Paulcy Iwuala via his verified Facebook page, advising him to advise his father better.
He replied that, “I would appreciate not being dragged into this. I am not an extension of anybody. I have my own opinions and I have always said I think Peter is the best candidate. All this has nothing to do with me.”
Iwuala’s mail to Ozonna read, “Right now Nigeria is bleeding. Your Dad, a man who should carry his common sense around, is completely bad-mouthing the hope the youths have. What is he standing to gain? If he is vying for presidency, then he should wait. When he declares, we’ll know.
“But now he is not. He is the governor of a state that is currently being taxed their life out of them. He hasn’t even made a single impact, yet he is talking about Peter Obi; that’s disheartening and disappointing.
“I love you Ozonna. It hurts me to put that out here as I initially spoke against anyone talking bad about your person till lots of things your Dad was saying started trickling in.
“I am sorry if I hurt your feelings. Your life is definitely free and trust me, you might look weird in the eyes of many but you have peace more than most of the person that think you are.
“Forgive me and understand this is desperate times and desperate measures are being taken for this only country we have to be free, just like you are free!
