N7billion Bribe: Since I Left Office, I Did Not Receive Even A Sachet Of Water From Anambra State Government – Peter Obi

Former Governor Peter Obi of Anambra State has denied reports that he demanded N7billion bribe for installing Governor Willie Obiano.

Obi wondered how he could have left N75billion for the governor and turn around to ask him for N7billion.

He noted that since he left office, he has not received anything from the Anambra State Government as entitlement or gift.

The former governor who was the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Vice Presidential Candidate in 2019, spoke during an interactive/stakeholders meeting of the Anambra State chapter of the PDP in Awka.

“Since I left Anambra State government seven years ago, I have not been given anything, not even a sachet of water by the state government. I still go about my duties, giving donations to schools.

“Not even a letter of commendation or even a Christmas or birthday card has been given to me by the state government. I am, however, not bothered because that is not why I am in politics. I am in politics to contribute to the growth of the country.

“Go and ask anybody, I don’t collect gifts to do favour to people. If you have gift for me, please give it to the needy around you. All the people I have helped to win election, I have never asked for anything in return.

“That is why I feel pained that somebody could say I demanded N7 billion for putting a governor in office. How can you leave N75bn for someone and turn around to tell him to give you N7bn out of it? That does not make sense. My interest in politics is for the right people to be elected, so that our society will be good.”

Obi further urged PDP delegates in the state to be careful whom they elect to fly the PDP flag in the forthcoming election in the state.

“You must vote in people who have capacity to win elections. Not all aspirants or candidates can win election, so you must vote people who can win elections. You must look well before you vote for people that will fly the flag of the PDP.

“ I assure you that our primary election will be free, fair and credible Anything short of it, I am not involved and I won’t be part of it. I have no favoured aspirant, and let no one tell you they gave me money or anything because it is not true.

“No aspirant has bought me a sachet of water. In my politics, I don’t believe in anyone giving me anything. I was governor of this state and a lot of you know me. Ask any contractor if they have ever given me anything. That is not the reason I am in politics. I am in politics to help gain a better future for Nigeria,” he added.
