Tinubu vs Peter Obi

Former Anambra State Governor and the presidential candidate of the Labour Party, Peter Obi has said the reason his performance in the state cannot be compared with Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu’s own in Lagos is that Lagos was more financially viable than Anambra State.

He said this while speaking in an interview with Chude Jideonwo after he was asked a question regarding his performance in Anambra and that of Tinubu in Lagos.

Peter Obi argued that all the past governors of Lagos did well, he said that Lagos was bigger, better, and a more financially viable state when compared to Anambra.

He said that Tinubu did his best and he respects him as an elder brother but he met Anambra in a poorer state, performed without borrowing money, and also received notable awards.

In his words;
“If you check Lagos even in the military era, no governor in Lagos that didn’t do well…”

“Everybody that passed through Lagos did well. I don’t want to compare us but go and check critical measurable tools of development, it’s human development index, that’s what you’ll use to do. Yes, he managed the bigger better state, more financially viable state.

I managed a poorer state that hasn’t have the financial capacity but I was able in eight years not to borrow one naira. I didn’t borrow one naira in that poor place, I met up the little obligations that I could, I was given an award as the state with the best road connection, I was awarded the most prudent governor.

Remember what I said, he’s my senior brother, he’s done well, he’s tried his best and everything and I respect him for that but where we are hiring a new manager will you hire him or me.”
