Anambra Governor Chukwuma Soludo has dismissed the allegation that his government spent N3.5bn to win the Assembly election as satanic.
He described the group, International Society for Civil Liberties and Rule of Law, as none existent and serial blackmailers.
Soludo spoke Monday through his Press Secretary, Chris Aburime, in a statement in Awka.
He said the All Progressives Grand Alliance, (APGA) earned popularity in the State and didn’t require any form of inducement to win any election in Anambra State
“The attention of the Government of Anambra State has been drawn to a false publication being peddled in some sections of the media bordering on the above headline.
“The satanic report alleging that Governor Chukwuma Charles Soludo-led administration spent a whooping 3.5 billion naira to execute the State House of Assembly election is not only untrue but highly despicable and illogical.
“The allegation is further baseless against the background that it is coming at a time of acute shortage of cash due to the Federal Government Naira Redesign Policy which sadly exposes the devilish intentions of the writer(s).
“Ndi Anambra are advised to disregard the non-existent International Society for Civil Liberties and Rule of Law (Intersociety) who made the said allegations.
“The people behind this organization have been known to be serial blackmailers over the years who do not serve any useful purpose to the society.
“Governor Soludo does not need to buy votes to win election. He is a democrat who enjoys the overwhelming support of the good people of Anambra State.
“The bogus claims by the author(s) are figment of their imagination and should be disregarded by Ndi Anambra and the general public,” the statement reads.
