The former Anambra governor also said nobody was funding his campaign. “Nobody as of today will say he’s funding Peter Obi. I’m funding myself. I don’t pay people to work for me,” he said.

Obi also spoke on how he would transform Nigeria from a consuming country to a producing nation.

Obi said all the country needed to work was leadership. “We must get the country to work and all it requires is leadership and I can do it,” he stated.

Speaking on borrowing, Obi said, “Nothing is wrong with borrowing if invested properly. Every nation in the world that I have studied, borrow. The problem with borrowing is what you do with the money.

“It’s okay to borrow for production but there’s a problem when you borrow for consumption. I will only borrow for production and I will explain to Nigerians why I’m borrowing. I must talk to the people because the job of a leader is to communicate with the the people.”
