Former governor of Anambra State, Mr. Peter Obi, has said that it’s suicidal for the Federal Government to be selling off assets to fund its budget. According to Obi, selling off assets is like selling off the future for the sake of the present, wondering “what will your children use tomorrow.”
At the interview session, he also expressed reservations over the claims of Garba Shehu that Transparency International, TI’s low rating in the corruption index was an indictment of Nigerians and not President Muhammadu Buhari or his administration.
Meanwhile, asked on Arise TV, on Monday, his take on the Federal Government selling off assets to fund its budget, Mr. Peter Obi said: “It’s like asking me what is my take on selling my property in order to live for today what my children are going to live with.
“If you sell the assets today, what are you going to sell tomorrow? What we need to do, as I keep saying, is to cut the cost of governance.
