An APC chieftain in Lagos State, Joe Igbokwe, has tackled the presidential candidate of the Labour Party, Peter Obi, demanding to know the great things he executed as Governor of Anambra State.
The former Anambra State governor 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.”
Recalling the comment, Igbokwe stressed that the LP presidential candidate was “just a trader.”
Igbokwe, who made his controversial comment on his Facebook profile noted,
“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 serious. Peter 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?” He queried.
Joe Igbokwe is an author, human rights activist, publisher and administrator.
