2023: Peter Obi Vows To Quit His Presidential Campaign As He Challenges Everyone To Come Up With A Powerful Proof Of…
The presidential candidate of the Labour Party (LP), Peter Obi has said that he will put an end to all his presidential campaigns if anyone can come up with proof that he accepted a land gift as a governor of Anambra state.
The LP flag bearer stated this during a visit to the palace of the Oba of Benin, Oba Ewuare II, in Edo State on Friday.
Naturenex reports that the LP flag bearer visited the revered Benin monarch when he and his team stormed Edo for campaigns ahead of next February’s polls.
Welcoming the presidential candidate to his palace, Oba Ewuare II used the opportunity to clarify a viral document where Obi rejected land allocation from the Anambra State Government while he was a serving governor.
Obi said, “Your Excellency, somebody shows me a letter where land was given to you in your state and you politely returned it that you don’t need it; that you are there to serve and so on. Correct?” the first-class monarch asked.
“If anybody sees a piece of land allotted to me, my wife, or any of my family members, directly or indirectly when I was governor, I will stop campaigning.”
Obi’s two-term intermittent tenure as governor of Anambra between 2006 and 2014 was marred with legal battles up to the Supreme Court.
