Peter Obi, a former Governor of Anambra state and running mate to Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar has dismissed the report that the opposition party wasted $16 billion on power projects during their 16 years rule.

Obi said “If you say that the PDP spent $16 billion and there is no power, it is not true,” Obi said.

He stated this on Wednesday at a town hall meeting tagged: ‘’The Candidates”, organised by the MacArthur Foundation in collaboration with NTA and DARIA media in Abuja.

Recall that President Muhammadu Buhari had criticised former president Olusegun Obasanjo for spending billions of dollars on power projects in the country with no results.

According to the President, Obasanjo had bragged that he spent 16 billion dollars on power yet there’s been nothing to show for it.
