Video: I’ve never claimed to be poor, I’m a rich man anywhere in the world

Presidential candidate of the Labour Party, (LP), Peter Obi says he has never claimed to be a poor man.

Obi stated this during an interview while correcting a perception about him being frugal, as he stated that he is a comfortable man by any global standard.

He referenced a quote that goes thus ‘anybody who has $1 million dollars is a rich man and going by that, he is affirming that he is millionaire anywhere in the world.

The former governor of Anambra state also said he owns shares in companies in Nigeria and he does not see the need to flaunt it or explain his business to anyone.

Watch the interview below:

Meanwhile, CorrectNG reported earlier that Peter Obi said that he is richer than U.S. president, Joe Biden.

He made the statement while addressing Nigerians in US during the consultative visit, as he noted that he is too rich to think of siphoning money from government treasury.

According to the former Anambra governor, God has blessed him enough so he sees no need to steal ‘public funds’.

A video from the event was shared on microblogging platform, Twitter, and it captured Obi recounting how he visited US when he was campaigning to become governor in 2002.

He revealed that he placed a curse on himself for God to punish him if he ever steals government money.

Speaking on why it will be belittling of him to do such, Obi said that he is richer than Joe Biden whose worth stood at $8.9 million as at when he declared.

The LP candidate wondered why he, who is from the so-called third-world country, would steal public funds when he is richer than Biden, president of the United States.

“President Biden is worth 8.9 million USD, why should somebody like me from a 3rd world country steal public money when I am richer than the American president,” Obi said.
