Oba of Benin, Oba Ewuare II had quite an engaging conversation with Peter Obi yesterday, November 11, when the Labour Party presidential candidate and his running mate, Yusuf Datti visited him at his palace in Benin.
During the visit, the monarch noted that there are temptations in the presidency even though Obi’s reputation precedes him.
Oba Ewuare who knocked off claims of the former Governor of Anambra state being popular only on social media, recalled having a conversation about Peter Obi with people of different ages including a child who affirmed that he knows the Labour party, presidential candidate.
The monarch averred that the Benin throne had been apolitical from time immemorial and would remain that way. He however asked Obi if he would remain clean when he becomes President.
The Oba also asked him to confirm if he really turned down a parcel of land given to him.
Responding to the monarch’s questions, the Presidential candidate of the LP said it was true that he returned the land given to him.
Peter Obi went on to promise to make life better for Nigerians if elected President of the country.
