2023 Presidency: Joe Igbokwe blasts Peter Obi, says LP presidential candidate is just an overrated trader

Peter Obi and Joe Igbokwe

A chieftain of the All Progressives Congress, APC, in Lagos State, Joe Igbokwe has lambasted the Labour Party presidential candidate Peter Obi, describing him as an overrated trader.

Igbokwe stated this while reacting to Obi’s recent comment, where he condemned President Muhammadu Buhari’s system of stimulating the economy through infrastructure.

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.”

Igbokwe questioned the capacity of Obi to lead the country after making such a comment.

In his Facebook post, Igbokwe 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? “
