Peter Obi laments as another giant company P&G exits Nigeria

Recall that Obi on Thursday, December 7, Obi lamented the exit of top global Pharmaceutical giant GlaxoSmithKline (GSK) and makers of iconic brands, Procter & Gamble (P&G) from Nigeria.

According to the former governor of Anambra state, the manufacturing companies were departing because they perceived a decline in Nigeria's economic growth and productivity.

Reacting to Obi's statement, Omokri disclosed that the companies are closing operations in Nigeria because they are changing their business model not because the economy is poorly managed.

The PDP chieftain explained further that Obi is lying to revive his dead presidential ambition and distract Nigerians.

Omokri tweeted:

"Before they left Nigeria, GlaxoSmithKline left India, Kenya, Pakistan and Egypt. The reason is because they are changing their business model after a change in leadership. They are not leaving Nigeria because our economy is being poorly managed. These are deliberate lies told by Peter Obi to revive his dead on arrival Presidential ambition and distract Nigerians from the fact that he has not sued Peoples Gazette over the Yes Daddy audio that exposed him as an enemy of the Muslim Ummah, as he promised to do."
