Okonkwo who took a swipe at Tinubu said Obi was so “stingy” that he refused to “share” answers to questions directed to him at the Chatham House.

The appearance of the Labour Party’s (LP) presidential candidate, Peter Obi at Chatham House in the United Kingdom on Monday projected Nigeria as a pride of the black race and the giant of Africa.

LP spokesman, Kenneth Okonkwo, stated this on Channels Television on Monday after the party’s flag bearer discussed his plans at Chatham House, a world-leading policy institute and think-tank forum.

According to Okonkwo, Obi went to Chatham House to tell the world about a new Nigeria that is about to unfold, about security solutions and uniting Nigeria.

In the Chatham House Obi delivered a speech and answered questions afterwards, promising to “destroy the structure” that has kept Nigerians in poverty if elected president.

Meanwhile, on December 5, Tinubu, while at the Chatham House, delegated some questions directed to him to some persons on his team.

Femi Gbajabiamila, speaker of the house of representatives, and Nasir el-Rufai, governor of Kaduna, were part of the team members that answered questions on Tinubu’s behalf.

In a separate development, at an APC presidential rally in Ondo on January 7, Tinubu described Obi as “Stingy” and said the LP candidate’s policy on saving state funds is a recipe for underdevelopment.

Speaking on Obi’s feature at the Chatham House, Okonkwo, who aimed a dig at Tinubu over the latter’s decision to delegate questions, expressed satisfaction with the LP candidate’s outing in the UK.

“His appearance today at Chatham House is not just an appearance that will further Labour Party or further his candidacy, but his appearance has projected Nigeria as a pride of the black race, has projected Nigeria for what it is — the giant of Africa,” Okonkwo said.

“I’m so proud of my principal who was so stingy that he went to Chatham House and refused to share questions.

“He was answering the questions, in contradiction to the generous APC candidate who went there and shared the questions for other people to answer.”
