Former aide to former president Goodluck Jonathan, Reno Omokri has risen to the defence of vice presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party(PDP), Peter Obi over controversy of owning no house, outside Anambra state,
A video had emerged online recently, where the former Anambra state governor, Peter Obi was heard saying that “the only place I Peter Obi own a house is in Onitsha,” but receipt of a house in the UK in the former Governor’s name was quickly dug out.
In his defense, Omokri said Obi never lied as the latter truly has one house in Nigeria but lived in the UK for many years, so there’s no way, he wouldn’t have one there.
Peter Obi said “Having being governor for 8 years, I cant live outside Anambra. The only place I have a home is Onitsha. If you see any house anywhere in Lagos, Abuja belonging to peter Obi, confiscate it". Obi lived in UK for 17 years. He NEVER said he doesn’t own a house there.
