2023 Presidency: Why Peter Obi is overrated – Joe Igbokwe

As Nigerians eagerly anticipate the 2023 presidency, a chieftain of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Lagos chapter, Joe Igbokwe, on Friday described the Labour Party (LP) presidential candidate, Peter Obi, as “overrated “.

POLITICS NIGERIA reports that Igbokwe, a top campaigner of Bola Tinubu, presidential candidate of the ruling APC, berated Obi for a past comment condemning President Muhammadu Buhari’s system of stimulating the economy via erecting and renovating critical infrastructure.

“You can’t use infrastructure to drive economic growth,” Obi said at the time during an interview on Arise TV. “You invest in education and the SME (Small, Medium Enterprises) sector instead to deal with poverty,” he adds.

Making a flashback to the statement, Igbokwe reprimanded the former Anambra State governor, concluding that he is “just a trader”.

“Somebody who wants to be the President of Nigeria is telling you that infrastructure does not drive the economy in the 21st Century and you are taking that person serious. Peter [Obi] is overrated in Nigeria. He is just a trader,” he wrote on his known Facebook page.

  1. THIS IS A LIE MR MAN. TO INCREASE LIQUIDITY AND MOVE THE ECONOMY WITHIN A
    VERY SHORT PERIOD OF TIME. YOU MUST INVEST IN MEDIUM AND SMALL SCALE ENTERPRISES
    BEFORE WORKING ON THE INFRASTRUCTURE. INFRASTRUCTURE SERVES AS A VEHECLE FOR ECONOMIC MOVEMENT AFTER RESOURCES HAVE BEEN GENERATED. LIKE THAT TRADER MONEY THAT OSIBANJO GAVE THAT TIME AT KETU MARKET. IT WAS TARGETED AT THE LIQUIDITY DIRECTLY, THAT IS WHAT OBI WAS TALKING ABOUT.
    HE WAS CORRECT.

    1. AND, WHAT WOULD DRIVE THE SME AND OIL THE WHEELS OF ITS SUCCESS BUT INFRASTRUCTURE?

      Including according to you as presented below.

      “INFRASTRUCTURE SERVES AS A VEHECLE FOR ECONOMIC MOVEMENT AFTER RESOURCES HAVE BEEN GENERATED.”

      Which school did you attend, and you are not different from the CONAINER and CHINA trader Peter Obi. Who knows nothing about economics? from all indications

      YOUR UNCOMMONSENSE SUMMATION CAN BE SIMPLY SUMMARISED THUS.

      You will produce the goods before you made way or road for its movement or transportation and later construct both the vehicle and the road. Whilst the goods and produces with products RUSTS DELAPIDATE EXPIRED AND WASTED.

      WHAT KIND OF BUSH THINKING DO WE CLASSIFY AND CONSIDER THIS TO BE?

      Mister, you were only able to expose the congealed white substance upstairs and that is if there is any. You should not have manifested the magnitude of your IGNORANCE. Most belittling UNSOUND and lacks the least output of the most basic common sense.

      YOU ARE AS CLUELESS AS YOUR CANDIDATE WHO IS UNPREPARED AND UNFIT FOR THE OFFICE HE CRAVES.

      You people should keep your very low mentality away from our national lives.
