I’m funding my campaign – Obi  


The presidential candidate of the Labour Party, Peter Obi, on Monday, shot down any suggestion that his ongoing campaign is being funded by an individual or group. 

Obi set the record straight at the Editors Forum, an initiative of the Nigerian Guild of Editors. 

The Anambra former governor instead said his campaign is self-funding saying, “I cannot be talking about being transparent about managing public money without starting with my campaign. 

“I do not pay people to work with me. Nobody will say he is funding Peter Obi’s campaign. I am funding it myself. 

“All those things happening everywhere are just that people believe in our cause and give whatever it is from their little resources.”
