2023: Peter Obi Known For Giving False Statistics – Dele Alake
A member of the All Progressives Congress (APC) Presidential Campaign Council (PCC), Dele Alake, has accused the Labour Party (LP) presidential candidate, Peter Obi, of giving false statistics.
Naija News reports that the former Lagos State Commissioner of Information made the accusation during an appearance on Channels Television’s programme, Politics Today.
Alake said the former Governor of Anambra State is noted for giving inaccurate and bogus figures, stressing that the LP flagbearer can’t be trusted.
He said: “In fact, Obi is noted for false statistics, anybody knows that. So, there is really nothing to clear about that. Asiwaju is a human being like every other person.”
It Is Not True That I Don’t Give ‘Shi Shi’ – Peter Obi
Meanwhile, Obi has said that it is not true that he runs a campaign where he does not give ‘shi shi’.
Naija News reports that Shi shi is a word in pidgin English that means to give or have nothing, zero.
Speaking during an interactive session between him and north-eastern stakeholders in Abuja on Monday, the LP flag bearer said he is more concerned about using state money for the public good if elected Nigeria’s next President in 2023.
Obi also dismissed speculations that he has issues with his counterpart at the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Atiku Abubakar.
On the issue of frugality, Obi said: “People say we don’t give people ‘shishi’. It is not true. But I want to use your money for your good. I want to use it to educate your children and give them opportunities.
“I don’t want to steal your money. That’s not what I am doing because it is wrong. Rather, I want to be part of you and your children.
“I want you to understand that I am committed to you. I am committed to the Northeast. I am not going to be your President from Abuja.
“I am going to be your President from the Northeast. There’s no way I will not tour every single state of Nigeria. I’ll be everywhere.”
