Peter Obi, the presidential candidate of the Labour Party, LP, has said he never borrowed during his time as the governor of Anambra State.
The former governor of Anambra State disclosed this on Sunday during the Arise TV Town Hall meeting that hosted presidential candidates from various political parties in Abuja.
“During my time as a former governor, I served for eight eights. If you go to that state you will find that I never borrowed from any financial institution in Nigeria. I have never been invited or questioned about any missing money anywhere.
“The day I left the office, I wasn’t owing any contractor or supplier that had delivered his project, I was not owing pension, gratuity, or salary. I left in three banks; Access, Diamond and Fidelity, over $50 million each for the state.
“I have never borrowed, I served faithfully, and I left their money,” Obi said.
He added that apart from his stellar performance, he won the award for best road network from the Federal Government and an award from Bill Gates Foundation for best in education and health.
