Solution said he is not a member of the All Progressives Congress, therefore could not be contesting an election on its ticket.
Multiple media reports had on Wednesday, January 25, claimed that Soludo and 13 others have indicated to contest the election under the platform of the All Progressives Congress (APC).
The APC chairman in the state was said to have disclosed to some journalists that Soludo is among the contenders of the election.
But the ex-CBN governor stressed that he is not a member of the ruling party, so he could not be vying for a position on its ticket.
"I wish to clarify that I am not a member of the APC and could therefore not be contesting for its party nomination," Soludo said.
He said he has been receiving telephone calls, text messages, and emails from people who wanted to confirm the news.
"I also sought and obtained the phone number of the said state chairman and spoke to him in order to ascertain the veracity of the story," he said.
He, however, said the state chairman said he was misquoted by the journalists.
