Gbajue: 30 of the many lies told by Peter Obi – Reno Omokri

By Reno Omokri

Part 2 (The lies are so much one post could not take them. Please see Part 1 for the beginning).

Fourteen: He claimed that the US President pays for his own food, but a search on the White House website indicates that the White House food budget covers most of the costs of the US President’s meals, although there are some that the President pays for.

Fifteen: I employed 60% of Anambra people in IBL Brewery (IBL employs less than 0.06 of Anambra’s population).

Sixteen: Out of 150 players in the American NBA, almost 100 are Nigerians. But Nigerian players in the NBA are less than 3%.

Seventeen: I did not leave debt in Anambra (actually, he left debt, according to the Debt Management Office).

Eighteen: Tinubu sent out WhatsApp messages against me that I would destroy Lagos (actually, the blast was sent out by Powell Glad Legbe, an Obidient).

Nineteen: Nigeria exported less than $30 billion in 2021 (Nigeria has exceeded $30 billion in exports for over a decade).

Twenty: I am the first Governor to be impeached and reinstated in Nigeria (actually, Ladoja was the first).

Twenty One: I have never been involved in corruption (according to the International Consortium of Investigative Journalists, Peter Obi corruptly ferried money out of Nigeria and stashed it in secret accounts). For this, he was investigated by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission in 2022, and that case has not been officially closed.

Twenty Two: My investment in SABMiller is now worth $100 million (actually, the Obi government’s investment of $12.24 million is now worth only $5.38 million).

Twenty Three: The Governors of the Southeast founded ESN (actually, ESN was founded on December 13, 2020, by Nnamdi Kanu).

Twenty Four: I have only one wristwatch (Peter Obi has been photographed with multiple wristwatches).

Twenty Five: I don’t fly private jets (pictures don’t lie!). Obi has been pictured alighting from multiple private jets.

Twenty Six: The British government apologised to me after detaining me at Heathrow. Enquiries from the UK High Commission in Abuja indicated no such apology was offered by the British Government to Mr. Obi.

Twenty Seven: Peter Obi claimed NEXT was dissolved. Investigations revealed that the UK government did not dissolve the company. Rather, it was punitively struck off after failing to file annual returns.

Twenty Eight: Peter Obi claimed that apart from Venezuela, Nigeria is the only OPEC nation not meeting its quota. That is a lie. Data from OPEC’s website shows that no OPEC country meets its production quota.

Twenty Nine: He said Nigeria has 60% youth unemployment. However, according to the National Bureau of Statistics, this is false.

Thirty: Peter Obi claims he is a nationalist, but as Governor, he threatened to sack non-natives of Anambra in the Anambra State Civil Service, an unconstitutional act.
