The presidential candidate of the Labour Party, Peter Obi, has said that he is surprised he didn’t get 100% votes in Anambra State.
The former governor of one of the famous southeastern state noted this during a live session on Arise Television. During the interactive session, he said he wondered why he failed the secure 100% votes in his country home, Anambra.
He, however, said anybody that wants to know if he got 95% votes in Anambra State should come with him to see peoples reaction, as they know what he stands for.
"In the South-East, it is a similar situation. People know me, people know what I stand for, and people know I have kept to my promises.
"It is a simple thing, its like people going about saying he got votes in Lagos because of the Igbos, how many Igbos live in Lagos? I got more votes from indigenes in Lagos than those you can call visitors," he said.
Recall that he ruled as a governor of the state from March to November 2006, February to May 2007, and got a second term from June 2007 to March 2014.
