A former governor of Anambra State, Mr Peter Obi, on Monday, October 18, clarified that he has not received any invitation from the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC in connection with the Pandora paper leak.
He also denied having reacted to an invitation from the EFCC to him, saying what is being circulated on different social media platforms was not from him.
Peter Obi said he only read letters circulating on the internet, just like everyone else.
The former governor, in a press release by his media Office, Valentine Obienyem, said a reaction which quoted him as requesting the EFCC to make their investigations public, among other remarks did not emanate from him.
He said: “Peter Obi is yet to receive the letter from the EFCC, which he read on social media like others.
“From what is circulating, the letter appears to have been sent to an office he is no longer part of and is yet to reach him.”
The statement assured that Obi, being a law-abiding Nigerian; would honour all legitimate invitations from government agencies at all times.
Meanwhile, a former Deputy Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria and ex-presidential candidate, Kingsley Moghalu, has stated that young people leave the country due to economic frustration.
He stated this on Sunday, October 18; while speaking at an interview with Channels Television.
Moghalu said, “My family has always been international by virtue of my career; and my kids all want to come home to Nigeria.
“That is why they encourage me in my political career; because they feel that if I can win, I can lead the creation of a Nigeria; to which they can return to very happily. And many other families return to.
“Look at young people in this country, everyone wants to go; leave the country because there is so much misery; so much economic frustration.
“And I don’t blame them for leaving. My heart goes out to those young people. I want to lead the creation of a new Nigeria to which they can return.”
