Peter Obi, the Labour Party’s nominee for president, has voiced confidence in his ability to rule Nigeria even without the support of the National Assembly’s majority.
This comes after political activist Reno Omokri expressed concern that, should Obi win the presidency in 2023, he would be impeached.
Without a Senate majority, Obi might find it difficult to govern the nation, according to Omokri.
During an interview with Newsmen, Obi mentioned that while he was the governor of Anambra State, he didn’t have a representative in the House of Assembly.
The presidential contender asserted that MPs in the national assembly will agree with him if they believe he is acting morally in his capacity as president.
He said, “I was governor of Anambra state without one House member from my party. 30 members were from another party. Now Labour party even have one, this one I didn’t get. No senator, no local government chairman. Everybody was at another party.”
But when discussing his plans to tackle corruption, the former governor stated he would set an example.
He added that he would make sure that everyone around him opposed corruption as well.
Obi said, “Fighting corruption is easy. If you the principal person are not stealing, your wife and children are not stealing, those around you are not stealing, then you have reduced corruption by 70 per cent.”
