Former Minister of Communication, Adebayo Shittu, has queried the Labour Party (LP) presidential candidate, Peter Obi, for leaving a huge sum of money behind, after serving as Anambra state Governor.
Naija News reports that Shittu knocked Peter Obi, during an interview with Daily Trust.
According to the former Minister, the LP flagbearer had no business saving money for the state, especially when he is not a banker.
He further accused the former governor of investing state funds in his private businesses.
Shittu added that the aim of going to the government is to perform for the benefit of the masses and not to keep the money.
He said: “He left behind the government money that he had invested in his private company.
Is that what you are talking about? Could that be an advantage If you talk of somebody leaving money, was he supposed to leave money?
“Is he a banker or is he a bank? Was the money for safekeeping? Going to Government is going to perform for the benefit of the people not going to keep money”.
