We Still Remember How Peter Obi Chased Non-Indigenes Out Of Civil Service – SDP Scribe

The National Publicity Secretary of the Social Democratic Party (SDP), Alpha Muhammad, has recalled when the Presidential candidate of the Labour Party (LP), Peter Obi ejected non-indigenes from Anambra State when he was the Governor of the State.

In an interview with Muhammad said that the incident is still fresh in the minds of Nigerians, recalling that the non-indigenes, who were sent packing from the state, had to settle in Lagos State.

He spoke against the backdrop of th fact that the presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Bola Tinubu, would be an adopted candidate of the SDP immediately after consultations are concluded.

According to him: “When Peter Obi was busy increasing school fees in Anambra State, Tinubu was busy introducing free education, Anambra were rushing to Lagos to benefit from free education. Every day, you see a truckload of people going to Lagos in buses to benefit from Tinubu’s free education.

“When Peter Obi came, we know what he did to non-indigenes; people who are non-Anambra citizens in Anambra State were sent out of the civil service. Many of them ended up in Lagos.”

Muhammad claimed that the APC presidential candidate gave non indigenes of Lagos State opportunities in the civil service, political offices, among others.

Be added that Tinubu is the type of leaders that can unify the country.
