Peter Obi, vice-presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in 2019 presidential election, has said people in power are never told the truth.

Obi, a former governor of Anambra state said this on Friday, when he appeared as a guest speaker at the first convocation of Chrisland University, Abeokuta.

Speaking on ‘Creativity, innovation, and entrepreneurship: A critical intersection for economic development in Africa’, Obi said the challenges besetting the country are many.

He said, “The truth is that in Nigeria, the problem is over 75%. The country has been criminalised. Quote me, I am talking from experience of somebody who had served, I was there for eight years. ” he said.

“What I found in Nigerians and your parents here, including me, I am a victim of that, I was governor for eight years, you can hardly see anybody who tells you something is wrong.

“Everybody calls you his excellency, that since you came, things have changed, even, when you know that nothing has changed.

“It is just that we have a government that has criminalised the society and people celebrate criminality. So, nobody could say to them, stop.
