2023 Presidential: Anyone who steals public funds under me will face the wrath of law – Peter Obi vows


Former Anambra state governor and Labour Party (LP) presidential candidate Peter Obi has promised that if he becomes President of Nigeria, corruption will be a thing of the past.

According to him, corruption as part of the drawback of nation development was a social malaise that his administration would immediately arrest.

Obi said anyone who steals government money where the Labour party is elected to run the affairs of Nigeria would be dealt with decisively.

His words: “We will stop stealing of government money immediately, those who do will meet what they did not bargain for.” He said while fielding questions on the Morning Show on Arise TV.

He stated that his administration would focus on bringing people out of poverty to reduce crime and promote security outside other measures to be adopted to make Nigeria safe.




The presidential candidate of the Labour no party noted that drawing lessons from other climes that have taken steps to improve their societies, his administration would do a combination of everything to bring people out of poverty.

He stated that poverty was fuelling banditry and other forms of insecurity. But as Jamaica reduced crime with sports, his administration would invest in “sports, ICT, Agriculture and a combination of other things to pull people out of poverty and promote social cohesion and safety.

He said: “Noted that the crimes for which many people were arrested and imprisoned were amounts that “If these people can have a steady income, of N50,000 they will not be involved in that.”

According to him: “Nobody was safe in Brazil until Brazil decided to do what I intend to do in Nigeria, investing in people.

“In doing these things I am going to reduce crime,” he stated.
