Peter Obi says he has never received any pension since he left office as the governor of Anambra state eight years ago.
“Since I left office eight years ago, I have never received any pension. Anambra State has never bought me any pure water because governors should not have any retirement package,”
He made this disclosure on Saturday while speaking at a function in Umuahia, the Abia State capital.
“You came to serve and when you finish, you should go home. God has blessed you enough. Whatever power God has given you, it’s by grace. Don’t abuse the grace of God. We must stop abusing God’s grace in this country and use public funds to serve the people.”
The former Governor said that as he was exiting office, he invited the chief executives of three banks where he had warehoused state funds for the next administration and publicly handed them over to his successor.
