A First Republic Aviation Minister, Mbazulike Amechi, has claimed that the presidential candidate of the Labour Party, Peter Obi, possesses a clean record, which is why he has not been arrested or prosecuted by any anti-corruption agency.
Speaking to journalists at the weekend, Amechi mocked former Anambra State Governor Willie Obiano for trying to leave the country hours after handing over.
The nonagenarian stated that if Peter Obi loses the 2023 presidential election, he (Amaechi) would conclude that God has destined Nigeria to suffer.
The elder statesman warned that nothing harmful must befall the presidential candidate of the Labour Party and his running mate Yusuf Datti Baba-Ahmed.
He said, “I don’t think it was just an accident that Peter Obi emerged. I think it was God’s way. If anything happens to him, it will worsen the situation in Nigeria, and the situation may degenerate to something non-describable.
“If they’re afraid of Obi, who is just a beginner, why should they not be eternally afraid? Peter Obi is the only governor who left office, and nobody asked him any questions.
“He didn’t know the office of EFCC, ICPC, or DSS because of his clean records. The man who succeeded him wanted to leave the country two hours he handed over, meaning he wanted to sneak away.
“Many other governors who left office have been arrested and charged to court, but they ran into Senate or APC as a party, and today their cases are closed. That’s the kind of rotten country you have. Yet people are suffering and may continue to suffer.
“I don’t think God created us to continue to suffer. The 2023 election is an opportunity he’s provided for us to right the wrongs. You will see how the whole world will embrace Nigeria if Peter Obi wins the election, and all the criminals and looters will melt away to Dubai.”
