The presidential candidate of the Labour Party, Peter Obi, on Tuesday, Jan. 10, said Nigeria needs a stingy leader to be developed.
His statement comes after Atiku Abubakar of the People’s Democratic Party and Bola Ahmed TInubu of the All Progressive Congress referred to him as a stingy man.
Reacting, Obi said he owes no one an apology for being stingy.
He added that he is the youngest, the fittest and the most qualified candidate to be President among the four leading contestants.
He stated this at a town hall meeting with Anambra traditional rulers at the Government.
He said, “This is not about turn but about capacity because if it is about turn, people like us would insist that it is our turn and should be considered.
“The job of a President is not a retirement loan or for any kind of settlement but about uniting and rebuilding the country.
