Uproar in Peter Obi’s camp as “Ghost” pocket N60m donated to campaign



Reactions have ensued after a supposed affiliate of Mr. Peter Obi, the presidential candidate of LP, abdconded with N60 million which was donated to his campaign.

The yet-to-be identified person was called out on microblogging platform, X by @MissPearls, a strong supporter of Peter Obi on Sunday.

According to her, this individual got greedy and took a hold of about N60 million that another supporter donated in the cause of the election.

She revealed that Peter Obi had found out about this middleman and fraud, and is now insisting that the money must be refunded the donor.

@MissPearls went on to claim that a person can’t be corrupt around Obi and go scot free, adding that the coming days will be very interesting.

In her words;

“The corruption we were vehemently speaking against was happening right under our noses and we didn’t even know

“I trust Obi. You cant be corrupt around him and go scot free. The coming days will be very interesting!

“So someone donated N60M to Peter Obi. A whooping N60M. A greedy middle man pocketed EVERYTHING. Now Obi has found out and said the middle man must refund the donor. Lobatan!,” she wrote on her X handle.

Meanwhile, TopNaija gathered that media outlet, Daily Post reached out to Yunusa Tanko, one of the spokespersons of Obi’s presidential campaign, to seek his comments on the matter.

Although he did not confirm the incident, Tanko noted that Obi had always insisted that people should account for money given to them.

He said: “I don’t know or have heard about that but what I know is that his Excellency Mr Peter Obi has always said that if there are contributions or donations being made for a particular project in support of his candidature, they should account for the persons who have given them the money.

“For example, if I am looking for a support, say I want to mobilize people or agents for Peter Obi and I will now solicit for fund, If people donate to me, it’s incumbent for me to account for those who donated to me.

“In this case, whoever that donated money to that particular person should ask, ‘what was the money meant for, and how was the money used?’ with proof.

“That is why I said, knowing fully well that such a thing could happen, that is why Mr Peter Obi said people should account for money. And it’s because he called people out that’s why people are hearing that people donated ‘X’ amount of money somewhere ‘ABC’, which he didn’t know.

“I am only saying that Peter Obi has asked people to account for money given to them by any group or whosever.”
