Arise TV CEO slams Peter Obi, others for UK meeting
Chief Executive Officer of Arise TV, Ijeoma Nwogwugwu, has condemned Nigerian politicians for having meetings outside the country.
The politicians who had the meeting included Olusegun Obasanjo, Peter Obi, Nyesom Wike, Atiku Abubakar, Seyi Makinde, Samuel Ortom and others.
Photos from the meeting which may not be unconnected to the 2023 presidential election went viral on Thursday.
Reacting, Nwogwugwu blasted the politicians, especial Peter Obi who had tried to sell himself as different from others.
She wrote, “It is really disheartening that Nigerian politicians are jetting thousands of miles away to negotiate possible alliances. Couldn’t these meetings have all been held back home? More significantly, Peter Obi who has tried to sell himself as distinct from the rest, is no different.
“At the end of the day, it’s all about self-interest and not what is best for Nigeria. Sometimes, I often wonder why we kill ourselves and lose precious sleep over these politicians. They’re all the same…. Selfish, desperate, insincere, lying bunch.”
