Peter Obi Reportedly Caught Lying Again, See What He Said
The presidential candidate for the Labour Party, Peter Obi, was caught making misleading comments on the worth of Nigeria’ s exports for the second time. These remarks concerned the value of Nigeria’ s exports.
It was documented that he made the incorrect allegation on two consecutive occasions that the nation’ s exports of products and services in 2021 would be less than $30 billion, which would place it behind other smaller African countries like Morocco.
According to Obi, Nigeria is ” not a producing country” and has a poor export base, all of which contribute to the nation’ s lack of access to accessible dollars. Obi further said that Nigeria is ” not a developing country. ”
However, the French news agency AFP found out about him by conducting fact checks, and they established that his allegation was not correct.
Statistics released by the government indicate that Nigeria’ s annual exports have been greater than $30 billion for well over a decade now, and this trend is expected to continue.
Obi made the claim for the first time in an interview that lasted for an hour and was recorded by the Nigerian television network Arise Television. The interview was broadcast on July 6, 2022.
According to Obi, the population of Morocco is somewhere in the neighborhood of 36 million people, and in the year prior, the country exported commodities of more than fifty billion dollars’ worth of value.
