Governor Charles Soludo of Anambra State is trending on social media after a video clip of him being turned away from the front door of the State Box at the Eagle Square during the inauguration of President Bola Tinubu came to the fore.
Political vilifiers of the governor, notably Obidients were quick to denounce him over the incident asserting the he was getting a deserved retribution over his political diatribes against his predecessor and presidential candidate of Labour Party, Mr Peter Obi.
GWG.ng reports that Soludo was one of the prominent Igbo politicians who came out to deride Obi’s presidential aspiration asserting last November that there was no pathway to victory for the former Anambra State governor.
So, when Soludo arrived the Eagle Square and made his way to the State Box and was turned away by security men, the video of the incident caught the attention of his critics who mocked him for selling out his brother, Obi for political expediency.
However, some supporters of the governor were also quick to rush to his defence saying that despite the incident and the virial video, Soludo still found his way into the State Box where he sat beside Governor Biodun Oyebanji of Ekiti State and Alhaji Aliko Dangote.
GWG.ng captured some of the reactions to the development:

Okay, Gov Soludo was humiliated today while attempting to enter the VIP section and was directed to sit with the masses. He forgot that one who betrays his own brother can never be trusted by the buyer. This is just the beginning of their humiliation, as their regrets will soon start to haunt them. Peter Obi is my president.

What a twist of fate! Governor Soludo found himself redirected from the VIP section to sit with the masses? Talk about a humbling experience! 😄
But fear not! This is just the beginning of their extraordinary journey of self-discovery. They shall learn the ancient art of mingling with the masses, sharing stories and laughs, and discovering the true essence of camaraderie.

Soludo ignored Abia and went to Abuja to disgrace himself They didn’t hesitate to serve him breakfast, this is just a signal of what is coming Your enemies knows you more than you can imagine

This doesn’t make any sense. The man sitting beside Soludo with green cap is the present Governor of Ekiti State. So how was he humiliated to go and sit with the “masses”?
Meanwhile, the media team of Governor Soludo has kept mum over the viral video of the governor in Eagle Square
