Debate: Attendees rate Peter Obi, Osinbajo
Written by Sunday Donwa on December 15, 2018
The vice presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress, Yemi Osinbajo; and that of the Peoples Democratic Party, Peter Obi, on Friday disagreed on the state of the economy and the subsidy regime.
They both spoke at a debate jointly organised by the Nigeria Election Debate Group and Broadcasting Organisation of Nigeria in Abuja for vice-presidential candidates of five political parties.
While Obi claimed the economy had failed to improve under the APC’s government, Osinbajo said the economy had grown in leaps and bounds over the last one and half years.
Accusing the APC of chasing looters and neglecting the growth of the economy, Obi said, “You can’t shut down your shop and be chasing criminals.”
