The Labour Party (LP) presidential candidate, Peter Obi has vowed to stop campaigning for the presidency if anyone can prove he misappropriated funds received as governor of Anambra state.
The former governor made the statement while speaking to Nigerians in the United Kingdom and urged officials working in the government to stop stealing public funds.
According to Obi, he received over half a trillion naira during his eight-year tenure as the governor of Anambra state without misappropriating any percentage of the money.
He further dared anyone to prove his statement wrong, adding that if they can, he would stop campaigning for the presidency.
