The presidential candidate of the Labour Party, LP, Peter Obi, has dismissed claims that some “eminent Nigerians” donated their private jets for his campaign ahead of 2023 general elections.
It was widely reported at the weekend that the former Anambra governor got donations; in terms of private jets to facilitate his campaign across the country.
The claim went viral on social media platforms, and elicited mixed reactions.
Critics of the presidential candidate had also latched onto the rumour to call him out; saying such contradicts his ideology.
But in a post on his Twitter page on Sunday, October 16, 2022; Peter Obi said he has not received any such offer as claimed.
The former governor, however, said he appreciates “such expression of hopes”.
“Recently, several social media reports have alluded that some eminent Nigerians have donated their personal jets for my use during my campaign. In as much as I appreciate the expression of such hopes, I have never received any of such offers,” he tweeted.
“I pray that those eminent Nigerians mentioned, are not unduly distracted by such social media utterances. May God Almighty bless those eminent Nigerians always.”
