A chieftain of the All Progressives Congress, APC, in Lagos State, Joe Igbokwe has criticized the presidential candidate of the Labour Party, LP, Peter Obi over his anti- infrastructure comment
Igbokwe said Obi was an overrated presidential candidate.
He recounted a recent comment by Obi where he condemned President Muhammadu Buhari’s system of stimulating the economy through infrastructure.
The former Anambra State governor had 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.”
Recalling the comment, Igbokwe stressed that the LP presidential candidate was “just a trader.”
In his Facebook post, Igbokwe wrote: “Somebody who wants to be the President of Nigeria is telling you that infrastructure does not drive the economy in the 21st Century and you are taking that person seriously. Peter [Obi] is overrated in Nigeria. He is just a trader.
“Obiano built the Anambra International Airport, built the Awka flyover bridge. Which one did Mr Obi build in 8 years?
