Anambra State Governor, Prof. Chukwuma Soludo has debunked reports that he said $20 million allegedly invested in Sabmiller Group by the state had grown to a networth of $100 million.

In a statement by his Chief Press Secretary, Christian Aburime, on Saturday, the governor was quoted to have said that the report was untrue as he never made such statement.

Some social media
platforms had credited a report to Governor Soludo wherein he said the state now owned the highest share in Sabmiller.

But in the press statement entitled, “Re: $20m Anambra State investment in Sabmiller Group”, Aburime called on members of the public to disregard such information.

Read the statement: “The above news trending online in some social media handles, alleging that Anambra State Governor, Prof Chukwuma Charles Soludo announced today; 29-04-2022, that the 20 million dollars which former Governor of Anambra State, Mr Peter Obi invested on behalf of Anambra State in Sabmiller Group is now worth 100 million dollars.

“The writer further claimed that from today; 29-04-2022, Anambra State now owns the highest share in the global company.

“This is to notify the public that the statement allegedly credited to Professor Chukwuma Charles Soludo is completely false. The Governor never made or issued any statement to that effect.

“It is untrue and should be completely disregarded.”
