Ose Anenih, son of the late former minister of works and housing Tony Anenih, has come under criticism on Twitter for dragging presidential candidate Peter Obi.

Mr Anenih, a member of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), has been critical of Mr Obi who left the PDP to the Labour Party where he will be contesting the presidential election next year.

On Monday, Anenih tweeted a video from an interview conducted in the build-up to the 2019 election when Obi was the running mate of PDP presidential candidate Atiku Abubakar.

In the interview, Obi admitted investing Anambra State funds in banks and power sector where he had interests.

But Anenih commented that the act was impeachable.

“Invests BILLIONS of state funds in a company his family will benefit from DIRECTLY. This is just the one we caught. God knows what else this wily character has hidden behind his plastic smile

“In polite society this is reason enough for his impeachment. Let the excuses roll in,” he said.

On Tuesday, he tweeted a correction, saying the former Anambra governor did not invest state funds in NEXT Supermarket owned by the Obi family.

“Fiery podcast. Slight correction: Obi did not invest state funds in his family’s business NEXT.

“What he did instead when he was offered a 15% stake in the new (Intafact) brewery was allocate 10% to Anambra State which he used state funds to secure; then allocate 5% to his family business,” he wrote.

Anenih, however, added that Obi is not beyond “interrogation”.

Reactions have begun trailing his comments about the Labour Party presidential candidate.
