Governor Chukwuma Soludo has accused Labour Party’s presidential candidate of trying to lay landmines for him with his call that the people of Anambra should vote members of his party in the 18 March state house of assembly election.

Obi, also a former Anambra Governor, had during his campaign called on candidates of the Labour party to win and support the APGA-led government.
