“May God punish me and my children if I’ve stolen public funds” – Peter Obi blows hot

The 2023 presidential candidate of the Labour Party has denied every allegation that he might have embezzled public funds during his tenure as the governor of Anambra state.


Speaking at the Beverly Hills Diaspora hangout in California United States of America on Tuesday, August 30, the former governor of Anambra state said it has always been difficult for people to believe the truth in Nigeria because lying has become the order of the day.

Obi asked that God’s wrath should visit him and the members of his family if he has ever stolen public funds while in office.

Also speaking on efforts put in by his supporters and the Labour Party to ensure that the 2023 presidential election is a success for him, Obi said the labour of the people shall not be in vain.

He also noted that he constantly prays to God to help him succeed as a president should he ever win the 2023 presidential election.

His words: “One of the problems we face in Nigeria is that I have worked in the office and you can hardly find someone who will tell you the truth.

“I assure you that what we are doing will never be in vain and I remain prayerful. People who have come to pick me up at the airport will ask, why are you always praying?

“And I say listen, I always ask God, do not allow me, if I have the opportunity to fail the people.

“And If I have taken public money that I am not entitled to God should punish me and my children. Not because of anything but because God gave me enough.”
