In the statement Obi said: “We don’t share money because we believe that the concept of sharing money to win elective position is stupid. When you give money to someone that wants to engage you, there is every tendency that you will lose track of the work you come to do, and probably go stealing to recover what you spend while looking for the job.
“What LP is bringing on the table is new approach to politics in Nigeria. One of the legacies of the LP presidential candidate is that he has redefined politics in Nigeria – this is one of his legacies.
“Before now, Nigeria has made politics synonymous with money. This is why when a politician goes into office, his main mission is how to accumulate wealth. In the past, they will tell you that even a goat with pool of money can win presidency in Nigeria. But today, Peter Obi has made everybody understand that what can make someone win election is competence, credibility, integrity and good records.”
