The presidential candidate of the Labour Party, Peter Obi has stated that he will stop his campaign if anyone can prove that he accepted a land gift as Governor of Anambra State.
Obi stated this on Friday at the palace of the Oba of Benin, Oba Ewuare II, in Edo State when he and his team stormed the region ahead of the 2023 election.
While receiving the presidential flag bearer, the monarch brought up the issue of a document that showed that Obi rejected a land allocation from the Anambra State Government while he was a serving governor.
“Your Excellency, somebody showed me a letter where land was given to you in your state and you politely returned it that you don’t need it; that you are there to serve and so on. Correct?”, Oba Ewuare asked.
Responding, Obi stated: “Very correct. If anybody sees a piece of land allotted to me, my wife, any of my family members, directly or indirectly when I was governor, I will stop campaigning.”
