On Friday, June 24, a chieftain of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Lagos chapter, Joe Igbokwe, described the Labour Party (LP)'s presidential candidate, Peter Obi, as overrated.
Igbokwe, a top campaigner of Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, presidential candidate of the ruling APC, berated Obi for a past comment condemning President Muhammadu Buhari’s system of stimulating the economy via erecting and renovating critical infrastructure.
Obi said at the time during an interview on Arise TV, said:
“You can’t use infrastructure to drive economic growth. You invest in education and the SME (Small, Medium Enterprises) sector instead to deal with poverty.”
