Peter Obi – There have been people contacting schools I attended to inquiry about whether I was really a student


The Labour party presidential candidate in the forthcoming elections, Peter Obi has disclosed that people have been calling the management of the schools he attended, to know whether he was truly a student there, ever since he became a presidential aspirant.

The two-time Governor of Anambra state revealed that he recently got a phone call from one of the schools he attended, and was asked whether all was well because over a thousand people have been calling them questioning his educational qualifications.


Peter Obi sarcastically added that he would generously give out numbers of alumni, so that making these inquiries would be made easier, for those doing so. 

Okowa on Peter Obi Presidential seat bid

He lacks the required experience to lead Nigeria. The Governor of Delta State and running mate to the PDP Presidential candidate, Ifeanyi Okowa, has said that the presidential candidate of the Labour Party, lacks the required experience to govern Nigeria. 

Okowa, who spoke to BBC Pidgin confessed that Mr Obi indeed gained a wealth of experience from being a governor for 8 years, but the experience he considered not “big” enough to lead Nigeria. I didn’t mean to make it sound like he wouldn’t get votes; of course, he will get them. He is popular, but his experience is not enough to rescue Nigeria. His experience won’t be enough to win him this, it will be very hard. The experience he has is not deep enough.

I (Okowa), a current sitting Governor, can tell you how hard it was for me to tackle the crisis in my state. I even want to learn these crisis-resolving skills from my boss, Atiku, because he has that full wealth of experience, having worked at various levels of the Federal government. “Okowa said.

When given the choice, it was hard to decide to vote for the candidate of the other party. But at a time at some point where you have to say, “Enough is enough.”

Mr Obi who is the labour party presidential candidate for the 2023 election, has received massive support across the nation, especially on social media, but this has been faced with lots of backlashes from various quarters.
