In his reaction, AkinAdejola questioned the former diplomat if he would vote for Obi if he was running for the UK PM position.

"If he was running for PM in the UK, with the questions asked and answers given, will you be voting for him? no new ideas, no new innovations or even new reforms. most of his answers were stolen from other candidates or what the current government already done. He's empty at best."

Ugochukwu @kizzmath also asked:

"I know you as an upright man who speaks against corruption with a high moral standard for himself. What would you say about Peter Obi investment of state funds in a company NEXT has a major interest in it?"

Duke Babington @RICHdimkpa

"Loved your excellent question on the way forward for countries who are less than enthusiastic about investing in Nigeria at this time. It enabled HE Peter Obi expand more on what his administration would do practically to make Nigeria more attractive to potential investors."

Nathan the 4th

"Your question was my favourite for the day. Most of those asked today were questions PO have answered on several occasions. We need to start talking foreign investments and a friendly place to do business. We have the population for any business to thrive."
