Okupe's Conviction Won't Demoralise Me - Peter Obi

TalkGlitz had reported that a federal high court in Abuja had convicted for breaching the Money Laundering Act.

The Court sentenced him to two years imprisonment.  The judge, however, gave an option of N500, 000 in each of the counts, amounting to N13 million, which must be paid before 4:30 pm (the close of work) today.

Reacting, said Conviction wouldn’t break his resolve to be Nigeria’s President in 2023.

He said this while interacting with journalists in Uyo at the secretariat of the Nigeria Union of Journalists (NUJ), Akwa Ibom State Council, on Monday.

Obi said he would not be demoralised by Okupe’s conviction and would go on with his campaign.

According to Obi: “I am hearing about it(the conviction) just like you. I am still studying what is coming out of the courts and everything. I believe in the rule of law. It is not going to demoralize me.

“When I arrived in Akwa Ibom, somebody asked me why I haven’t been using my aircraft because it has been grounded and all that, and I said to him that nothing demoralises me,” he said.

Obi added that in his life, he has never stayed where they dropped him, saying otherwise, he would have been where they dropped him before.

“This election, if they like, let them do anything about people who are around me. I will get there,” Obi said.
