Living In Nigeria Is More Life-Threatening: Peter Obi


Peter Obi, former governor of Anambra state, says living in Nigeria, is more life-threatening than anything else.

Obi, who was the vice-presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the 2019 election, said this during an interview with ThisDay.

On whether he has ever had a near-death experience, he said: “What is more threatening to someone than living in Nigeria? We live under constant threats here.”

Narrating his life journey, he said, “There was a silver spoon when my father was alive and doing well but the civil war came and took both the silver and the spoon – leaving my mother and us toiling to meet our needs. One of the good things the war did not take away was the roof over our heads. My mother – a wonderful woman she was – struggled to see us through and guided us along the path of growth; a strong influence which I have imparted to my children. ”

On spending money wrongly, he said; “I have always told you, in my life, I have an allergy to money being wrongly spent. I undertook the traditional wedding quietly and later had the Church wedding in London with 35-40 guests at the reception. We agreed that it was mainly about two of us and no amount of Champagne would make us better husband and wife?

“When I see Nigerians own houses in New York, Abuja, Lagos, Johannesburg, London, France, here and there – some of which they rarely occupy – I wonder what they hope to do with all of them. What are you going to do with them? I have a house in Onitsha and was urged to have one in the village, I simply responded ‘No’, because it is a 10-minute drive from Onitsha to my village. If my presence in the village is required, I will be there on time.”

He said that however, unlike him, “my wife enjoys life a lot”.
