Joe Igbokwe and Peter Obi
The APC chieftain was reacting to a comment by the former Anambra governor where he condemned President Muhammadu Buhari’s system of stimulating the economy through infrastructure.
Peter Obi had said: “You can’t use infrastructure to drive economic growth. You invest in education and the SME (Small, Medium Enterprises) sector instead to deal with poverty.”
Reacting to the comment, Igbokwe stressed that the LP presidential candidate was overated because he’s “just a trader.”
Taking to his Facebook ppage he wrote: “Somebody who wants to be the President of Nigeria is telling you that infrastructure does not drive the economy in the 21st Century and you are taking that person seriously.
“Peter [Obi] is overrated in Nigeria. He is just a trader. Obiano built the Anambra International Airport, built the Awka flyover bridge. Which one did Mr Obi build in 8 years? “
KanyiDaily recalls that the presidential candidate of the African Action Congress (AAC), Omoyele Sowore claimed Peter Obi did nothing in Anambra, stressing that the Labour Party has become an orphanage for displaced politicians.
