I have more than one property in London – Peter Obi
Vice-Presidential aspirant of the People Democratic Party (PDP) Peter Obi has disclosed that he has more than one property in London.
In a statement by his media aide, Valentine Obienyem, Obi stated that all the property he has was purchased before he became governor of Anambra State and were duly declared before he became the governor.
He noted that the only personal house he owned in Nigeria was in Onitsha.
“During several media programmes, Mr. Peter Obi said Onitsha was the only place he owned a personal house in Nigeria” the statement noted
“In an attempt to discredit him, some people are posting his London houses as the much-awaited evidence that he lied.
“First, let it be noted that the issue of having a personal house only in Onitsha is a matter of choice. If his lifestyle supports love for houses, Obi can afford to have houses in the 36 states of Nigeria and the Federal Capital Territory (FCT).
“As for his London houses, it might interest the public to note that he bought his first house in London in 1987. All the houses he owned in London were purchased before he became governor of Anambra State and were all duly declared,” he added
