Labour Party presidential candidate, Peter Obi, says disclosed why he can’t steal from public funds of elected Nigeria’s next president.
Obi who was addressing some of his supporters in the US was seen in a viral video claiming to be richer than the President of the United States of America, Joe Biden.
The former Anambra State governor argued that he is richer than Biden, who is worth $8.9m, because God had “over-blessed” him.
Obi said: “If I take public money that I’m not entitled to, God should punish my children and me, not because of anything but God gave me enough.
“I say to people, President Biden is worth 8.9 million USD. Why should somebody like me steal public money when I am richer than the American President? I am already over-blessed by God. We just need to develop our country.
“I’m not looking for a private jet, sophisticated house or to buy a house in America because I can’t live in America.
“What we are doing is not about the normal politics or contesting elections.”
