2023 It’s Not True That We Don’t Give ‘Shishi’ — Peter Obi

Mr. Peter Obi, who is the presidential candidate of the Labour Party, has asserted that it was not true he runs a penny-pinching campaign (not giving ‘shishi’) and rather that he is more concerned about using state money for the public good if elected Nigeria’s next President in 2023.

He made this known while speaking on Monday at an interactive session between him and the north-eastern stakeholders in Abuja.

At the event, Obi also ruled out speculations that he was secretly fighting his former principal and standard bearer of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Atiku Abubakar.

On the issue of frugality, Obi said: ‘People say we don’t give people ‘shishi’. It is not true. But I want to use your money for your good. I want to use it to educate your children and give them opportunities.

‘I don’t want to steal your money. That’s not what I am doing because it is wrong. Rather, I want to be part of you and your children.

‘I want you to understand that I am committed to you. I am committed to the Northeast. I am not going to be your President from Abuja.

‘I am going to be your President from the Northeast. There’s no way I will not tour every single state of Nigeria. I’ll be everywhere,’ he said.

The former Secretary to the Government of the Federation and chieftain of the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC, Engr. Babachir Lawal, who spoke yesterday stated that the 2023 presidential poll is a must-win election because of the current state of the nation.

Africa Today News, New York recalls that Prof. Pat Utomi had earlier claimed two former Heads of State are presently strongly behind the presidential candidate of the Labour Party (LP), Peter Obi ahead of next year’s general election.
