Former Anambra State Governor and former presidential candidate of the PDP in 2019 presidential candidate, Peter Obi has reacted to his alleged invitation by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) over the Pandora Paper report which mentioned his name in the tax haven scandal.
Obi promised to honour the invitation of the anti-graft commission once he receives a letter to that effect.
The PDP chieftain who spoke through his aide said as a law-abiding Nigerian, he would honour all legitimate invitations from government agencies at all times.
He said what is being circulated on different social media platforms was not from him, noting that he only read letters circulating on the internet, just like everyone else.
the former governor’s reaction is contained in a statement released by his Media Aide, Valentine Obienyem. Obi reiterated that a reaction that quoted him as requesting the EFCC to make their investigations public, among other remarks did not emanate from him.
Premium Times, reporting the Pandora Paper leak, had stated that Obi operated a foreign account and did not declare it in his asset declaration form provided by the Code of Conduct Bureau.
