I’ve had only one wristwatch for 17 years – Ex-Anambra state governor, Peter Obi

Former Anambra state governor, Peter Obi, today disclose dthat he has just one wristwatch that he has worn in the last 17 years. Speaking at the Platform, a church based programme in Lagos today, Obi said he has just two black shoes that he got for $49.99. Obi make these comments while addressing the search carried out in his Ikoyi apartment by EFCC operatives last week. Obi has an apartment in the Ikoyi home where N15 million was discovered.

“Ask those who searched it. I was abroad, they said they wanted to search my house, I sent the key, and they searched my whole apartment and I can tell you the only thing they found. They said this man doesn’t live here. It was only his wife’s clothes and shoes that we saw, we didn’t see anything belonging to him. I have said it to Nigerians, Peter Obi wears only black shoes, and I have two pairs of it, and I travel with it. The purpose of shoe is to protect the leg from being hurt. Nothing else. I bought this from Marks and Spencer, $49.99, finish. They said ‘we didn’t even see watch’, and I have said it to everyone, this is the only watch I have. I have worn it for 17 years. The purpose of watch is to keep time. Why would I keep a watch at home? Whose time is it keeping?” he said.

You are as shameless as the other crooks in the assembly. Who said a Pen-thief needs a watch in Nigeria? Does having a 1million dollars watch for 17years make it any less than a brand new watch? You started 17years ago...

He is indeed a bloody liar, peter obi wants us to believe he is frugal and does not crave expensive life style oya lets dissect him, peter obi ikoyi apartment cost him 150million Naira, he bought that apartment when he left office as a governor when he was in fidelity bank he did not have that crib. Peter obi did not spend Anambra money recklessly we agree but he has an apartment in Dubai worth 10million dollars like burantai, he has one watch for 14 years which we all know that is not possible has has 4 pairs of shoes which we know it is not possible Obi leave story for the gods nwanne

It could be true. If you look at some rich men the hardly have time for flashy things. I can tell you from the ones I have seen and know,you will Not Know that they are rich. I mean billionaire. There is a particular man I know and I respected the man the moment I know his worth. The phone he uses is Nokia that old first Nokia phone. He comes to the bar and takes only one bottle. One day some young guys came to the bar and trouble with the man over the table he sat. To the extend the manager had to come to support the guys. When the man rose up and gave the manager a hot slap. Just a call army arrived the scene. I was able to learn from the man so many things. What should he be doing with android and black berry phone with browse or whatsapp when he has his laptop. To him it is only who does not have work or vision sit down to do all sort. Why should he have mansions and cars every where, that three is enough for him. One for himself, one for the wife and one for the children. The money they have is there sweat, hard work and not a stolen or ritual money.
So on Mr Peter Obi am compel to believe him. If we have watched the platform program yesterday, he said he was a rich man before venturing into politics / becoming the governor of anambra state.

Dont HATE, do your research and see what he has done in Anambara State! And yes he was a multi millonnaire if not a BILLONNNAIRE before becoming Governor- Anytime you eat Heinz products in Nigeria from Baked Beans to Salad cream you are paying Peter Obi (Sole franchise), he is indeed a trader before Fidelity, Next Abuja, Chams etc. Every single thing he preached on that platform was Executed in Anamabara. He invested in the states future by making the state part owner of Pabod breweries amongst many many other things. He invested in Education and Anambara consistently came first in all WAEC and NECO exams- he returned ownership of schools to the church and communities while funding them.He encouraged Private sector investment ( eg Inoson etc etc) He Saved billions for the state part of which is being used in building all the flyovers in Awka by the current administration. Peter was on record in paying most salaries way before their due date. I can go on and on and on but I would stop here and say- yes Nigeria has able leadership, do not always think everyone is rotten and corrupt. Encourage the GOOD men to do something( most times it incurs personal risk) because EVIL prevail when GOOD MEN do NOTHING.
