Peter Obi has pledged to resign if he is elected and unable to add value in government alongside Atiku Abubakar.
Obi said that he was quite shocked that Atiku chose him, because he was not close friends with the former vice president of Nigeria.
“I am not that close to Atiku. I’m not one of those who knows him very well. It’s less than one year since I got familiar with him. His choosing me is courageous.
“If we get elected and it doesn’t work out between me and Atiku, I go home. I wasn’t born a governor or vice president. How do people want to stay where they are not adding value or doing anything?”, Obi asked.
Obi also said he governed Anambra without touching the public fund from 2007 to 2014.
“I am not a saint, but I didn’t take money out of Anambra State that didn’t belong to me”, he said, citing the ‘healthy’ bank accounts he left for his successor Willie Obiano.
