The presidential candidate of the Labour Party for the 2023 elections in Nigeria Peter Obi, has reacted to the report that a former Minister of Defence, General Theophilus Danjuma (retd), has donated a private jet to him for campaign.

According to a media report, Danjuma was said to have donated a Challenger 605 Bombardier jet to Obi’s campaign.

Obi, who spoke on his verified Twitter handle on Sunday, however said he has never received such an offer and that the reports are false.

He tweeted: “Recently, several social media reports have alluded that some eminent Nigerians have donated their personal jets for my use during my campaign.

“In as much as I appreciate the expression of such hopes, I have never received any of such offer.

“I pray that those eminent Nigerians mentioned, are not unduly distracted by such social media utterances.

“May God Almighty bless those eminent Nigerians always.”
