Former governor of Anambra State, Peter Obi is currently a trending topic on Nigerian twitter following his interview with Channels TV yesterday morning where he dropped a lot of ‘facts’ and ‘figures’.
During the interview, Peter Obi said, ‘unemployment is worsening, in 2017 alone our unemployment moved from 14.8% to 18.8% this year, which means more people have lost their jobs’.
He also said, ‘you are borrowing money and the issues that it was supposed to affect is not coming down. Poverty is increasing, out of school children have moved from 10 million to almost 12 million’.
While many people agree with him and applaud his intelligence, others feels he was simply ranting and bragging with unverified statistics.

A simple Google search of Peter Obi’s policies as Anambra state Governor will help you understand how financially prudent his administration was.
But no, you must parade Twitter dressed in the garment of ignorance.

Peter Obi: “I don’t have a single property in this country outside Onitsha. If you see a piece of land or house in Abuja and you hear it belongs to Peter Obi, burn it down.” pic.twitter.com/YsWjd2XpBN

“All I know is that governance has nothing to do with age. Today, the youngest governor in the country is an unmitigated disaster.” Peter Obi

Really sad that some of you are sleeping on Peter Obi.
Chinwoke Mbadinuju brought Anambra to a stand still. Worst governor in Nigeria history.
Peter Obi came in with Anambra Integrated Development Strategy (ANIDS) and turned Anambra state around.
Okwute Ndibgo ya gaziere gi.
