Raw Nigeria reports that Labour Party’s presidential candidate, Peter Obi have reacted to prison sentence of Campaign Organisation’s Director-General, Dr. Doyin Okupe.

Dr. Doyin Okupe was sentenced to prison over alleged money laundering. Peter Obi said the sentence won’t stop him from becoming President of Nigeria in 2023.

While interacting with Journalists in Akwa Ibom, at the Nigeria Union of Journalists (NUJ), Akwa Ibom State Council Secretariat on Monday Peter Obi said:

“I am hearing about it (the conviction) just like you. I am still studying what is coming out of the Court and everything. I believe in the rule of law. It is not going to demoralise me.

“Today, when I arrived Akwa Ibom somebody asked me why I haven’t been using my aircraft because it has been grounded and all that, and I said to him that nothing demoralises me.

“In my life, I have never stayed where they dropped me, otherwise, I would have been where they dropped me before. This election, if they like, let them do anything about people who are around me. I will get there,

On the impression that he does not have political structure to win the presidential election, he said he was determined to dismantle the existing political structure in the country which encouraged corruption and spread poverty among Nigerians.

“The structure they have today is the structure we want to destroy. It is the structure of criminality. It is structure that produced 133 million people living in poverty,

“It is the structure that produced 20 million out of school children. It is the structure that has made Nigeria surpass India in infant mortality. It is the structure that will destroy Nigeria and we want to destroy that structure,

my problem is how to create a future and make Nigeria a productive and not a consuming nation.”
