Peter Obi denies fall-out with PDP over mismanagement of campaign funds
The Vice Presidential Candidates of Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in 2019, Peter Obi has denied fallen off with the party due to mismanagement of campaign funds
Obi in a statement issued by his Special Adviser on Media, Mr. Valentine Obienyem said the report was fabricated by those he called “shameless and mindless ingrates”.
According to the statement , the two versions of the fake news signed by different persons suggest that the writers were either confused or out of their wits.
Further, Obienyem said he was always happy each time he saw such a fabrication, because, according to him, it was usually sure evidence that after another rounds of research and going through the books they found nothing on Obi and resorted to their penchant to manufacture what did not and probably would never exist.
Recalling how most of those were involved in campaigns at different times were either questioned or detained by anti corruption agencies, Obienyem said that because of Obi’s known principles in the management of public funds, that he was neither invited nor questioned at any time.
Obienyem said that those who had followed Obi since his foray into public life, would have noticed the discomfort among some people that Obi has always proved to be a different politician.
“Being human”, Obienyem said, they pray and fast that Obi should sin a little even out of respect for the frailty of human nature. Now that it is clear to them that Obi is beyond reproach, they should look elsewhere, towards another strategy and not on the direction of financial impropriety.”
