“I’ll Quit 2023 Presidency Campaigns If…” – Peter Obi Lament

Published

The presidential candidate of the Labour Party (LP), Peter Obi has said he will quit campaigning ahead of the 2023 poll if anyone can prove that he accepted a land gift as governor of Anambra State.


Obi, 61, a former governor of Anambra stated this on Friday at the palace of the Oba of Benin, Oba Ewuare II, in Edo State.

He had visited the first class monarch when he and his team arrived Edo for campaigns ahead of next February’s polls.

Receiving the Obi into his palace, Oba Ewuare Il sought for clarification on a document Obi rejected a land allocation from the Anambra State Government while he was a serving governor.

“Your Excellency, somebody showed 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.

“Very correct,” Obi responded.

“If anybody sees a piece of land allotted to me, my wife, any of my family members, directly or indirectly when I was governor, I will stop campaigning,” the presidential candidate replied.

Meanwhile, the Oba of Benin went on to express his awareness that both young and old people have become ‘Obidients’ in supporting the Labour Party’s presidential candidate.
