Why I stopped supporting Peter Obi – Deji Adeyanju
Kogi-born activist, Deji Adeyanju, has stated the reason he stopped supporting the presidential ambition of Labour party presidential flagbearer and the former governor of Anambra state, Peter Obi.
Adeyanju disclosed that his support came to an end moment after meeting with the Onitsha-born politician for three hours.
He alleged that Peter Obi is not a saint, and was as corrupt as others.
In a series of tweets on Monday night, Adeyanju claimed that Obi told him that he invested billions of Anambra State money into his family business and was still trying to justify it.
Adeyanju stated that Obi’s decision to invest Anambra state money into his family business was the height of corruption and abuse of office.
According to him, Peter Obi is, however, the best candidate among those who have declared, especially with his cutting of cost theory but was not a saint.
Adeyanju tweeted, “The real reason I stopped supporting Peter Obi was after I met him for a 3hrs meeting at his instance of course & he told me he invested billions of Anambra State funds into his family business. And the man was even trying to justify it. So many other things he said. SMH!
