2023 Presidency: Peter Obi Speaks On Being Invited By EFCC

The presidential candidate of the Labour Party, Peter Obi, has said he has never been invited by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) to answer corruption allegations.

Obi stated this on Sunday in Abuja at a Town Hall meeting organised for presidential candidates by Arise Television in partnership with the Center for Democracy and Development (CDD).

The LP Presidential candidate said he has never been questioned by the country’s anti-corruption agencies about any missing money since he left office as Governor of Anambra State.

According to Obi, he never borrowed from any financial institution in the country when he was governor of the South East state and didn’t owe any pension, gratuity, or salary.

Obi asserted that he left over $50 million each in Access, Diamond, and Fidelity banks for the state and won many awards for his performance in office.

He said, “In a country where those in government are richer than entrepreneurs, they manufacture poverty.

“During my time as a former governor, I served for eight eights. You can go to that state you will find that I never borrowed from any financial institution in Nigeria. I have never been invited or questioned about any missing money anywhere.

“The day I left the office, I wasn’t owing any contractor or supplier that has delivered his project, I was not owing pension, gratuity, salary. I left in three banks; Access, Diamond, and Fidelity, over $50 million each for the state.

“I have never borrowed, I served faithfully and I left their money. The system can work if we do the right thing.

“Saving money in addition to excellent performance, I won the award for best road network by the Federal Government. I also won an award from Bill Gates Foundation for best in education and health.
