The Oba of Benin, Oba Ewuare II on Friday asked the Labour Party (LP) presidential candidate, Peter Obi a deep question ahead of the 2023 election.
Naija News recalls that Obi and his running mate, Yusuf Baba-Ahmed yesterday held a campaign rally in Benin, the Edo capital.
While in Benin, the LP flag bearer visited the Oba in his palace.
During the course of their meeting, the monarch asked Obi if he would remain clean if elected into power in 2023.
The Oba who told Obi that his reputation preceded him, said there were temptations in the presidency.
Noting that it is believed that Obi was only popular on social media, the king said his findings showed the support spread across.
However, the traditional ruler told the former governor that the Benin throne has been apolitical from time immemorial and would remain that way.
At the Baptist Convention Ground, Obi told supporters he was ready to rebuild the country.
The LP standard bearer said if elected President, Nigerians would no longer go to bed hungry.
“It’s about you (the youths). With you, we will take back this country.
“We will stop people from looting the nation’s treasury. Labour Party will stop nepotism”, he promised.
Obi also visited Johnson Suleman, general overseer of the Omega Fire Ministries International, in Auchi.
