The presidential candidate for the Labour Party, Peter Obi, has come under fire for a speech he made in which he claimed to be richer than the Vice President of the United States, Joe Biden.
Because God had “over blessed” him, Obi claimed to be wealthier than Biden, who is estimated to be worth $8.9 million.
This information was revealed by the former governor of Anambra State while he was speaking to his followers in the United States.
An Abuja socio-political critic by the name of Deji Adeyanju responded by condemning the remark that had been made by Obi.
Adeyanju issued a stern warning, stating that the Labour Party presidential candidate’s history of questionable behaviour made him untrustworthy.
He remembered how, while Obi was governor of Anambra State, there were allegations that he used state monies for the benefit of his family’s company.
Adeyanju insisted that Obi is the same as his counterparts from the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, and Atiku Abubakar and Bola Tinubu of the All Progressives Congress, APC, in a tweet. Adeyanju was referring to Bola Tinubu and Atiku Abubakar.
On Twitter, he wrote, “After taking billions from Anambra State and placing them in your family business, we should now trust this assertion.”
“Anyway, Atiku and Tinubu see you and the rest of you the same way. Only Sowore has not yet earned the government’s trust with regard to handling public cash.
Peter Obi, the presidential candidate of the Labour Party, claims to be wealthier than Joe Biden, the President of the United States, US.
Obi claimed he is wealthier than Biden, who is worth $8.9 million, because God “over blessed” him.
To that end, the former Anambra State governor stated that if elected President in 2023, he would not steal public funds..
Obi said in a viral video to some of his US followers, “If I take public money that I’m not entitled to, God should punish my children and me, not because of anything but God gave me enough.”
“I tell people that President Biden is worth $8.9 million USD.” Why should I steal public funds when I am wealthier than the American President? God has already blessed me abundantly. All we need to do now is develop our country.
