Joe Igbokwe under fire for saying Peter Obi is overrated, only a trader

Joe Igbokwe, an aide of Lagos State Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu, has come under criticism for saying that the presidential candidate of Labour Party Peter Obi is overrated.

Igbokwe wrote on Thursday in a Facebook post, “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?”

Mr Obi’s supporters are reacting to his statement on Twitter. See reactions below:
