Presidential candidate of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, Peter Obi has denied the rumours of him offering his counterpart Mr Alhaji Rabiu Kwankwaso N40 billion to step down for the presidential race.
According to news reports, the former Anambra governor cleared the air on Monday during an interactive session with the Nigerian Guild of Editors, NGE, which was held in Lekki, Lagos State.
He said: “I never knowingly or unknowingly offered anybody money to become president. In all my talks with Kwankwaso, I never offered him any money.”
