Aburime stated this on Wednesday while fielding questions from newsmen.
“Soludo’s relationship, friendship and brotherhood with Obi is still intact, as against what many people think. I don’t know how people created and magnified a non-existent issue.
“As far as I know, there is no issue between Gov. Soludo and Obi. So I wonder why people disturb themselves and go about shouting in the media, overreacting and issuing one threat or the other over a non-existent issue they created.
“These are totally uncalled for and the people indulging in such should have a rethink,” he said.
He maintained that Soludo had the right to his opinion and was entitled to it under the 1999 Constitution as Amended and in a democracy and would not succumb to blackmail, threat or attack.
He urged the youths who are threatening to dump heaps of refuse around the government house gates to desist from doing that.
”The youth should refrain from being used as weapons of destabilisation instead of being part of the solution to the challenges facing the state.
”The youths are both the leaders of today and tomorrow. I wonder why they would allow themselves to be used by some individuals.
“Instead of threatening to dump refuse at the Government House, they should rally support for the government of Prof. Chukwuma Soludo, because his administration is actually working for the betterment of their lives.
“Aside from giving the youths various key positions in his administration, Soludo’s government is also currently training and empowering thousands of youths across the state in different vocational skills; youth empowerment is a major focus of his administration
“So, I advise the youth to think twice,” he said.
