PETER Obi released a coup-baiting statement claiming Nigeria is drifting away from democratic tenets. He also said corruption has reached endemic levels that can no longer be tolerated. All these are familiar code words used to trigger an overthrow of the government in other countries.
This is also coming as close members of his coterie have also publicly called for a military coup, with one claiming that a “coup is an option”.
Peter Obi is the last person qualified to make such claims. This is a man who deposited millions of dollars in Anambra State Government funds in a bank in which he had interests and personally benefited from those funds. That is unabashed corruption.
This is also a man who lies without regard for decorum.
And I will now list eleven of his biggest lambas:
1.I employed 60% of Anambra people in IBL Brewery (IBL employs less than 0.06 of Anambra’s population).
2.Out of 150 players in the American NBA, almost 100 are Nigerians.
3.I did not leave debt in Anambra (actually, he left debt, according to the Debt Management Office).
4.Tinubu sent out WhatsApp messages against me that I would destroy Lagos (actually, the blast was sent out by Powell Glad Legbe, an Obidient).
5.Nigeria exported less than $30 billion in 2021 (Nigeria has exceeded $30 billion in exports for over a decade).
6.I am the first Governor to be impeached and reinstated in Nigeria (actually, Ladoja was the first).
7.I have never been involved in corruption (according to the International Consortium of Investigative Journalists, Peter Obi corruptly ferried money out of Nigeria and stashed it in secret accounts).
8.My investment in SABMIller now worth $100 million (actually, the Obi government’s investment of $12.24 million is now worth only $5.38 million).
9.The Governors of the Southeast founded ESN (actually, ESN was founded on December 13, 2020 by Nnamdi Kanu).
10.I have only one wristwatch (Peter Obi has been photographed with multiple wristwatches).
11.I don’t fly private jet (pictures don’t lie!)
And this is the man who wants to lead an ethical revolution? Please!
