The Vice Presidential candidate of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) in the 2019 election, Peter Obi has denied rumours spreading that he has being denied an American visa as claimed by different political camps.
In a statement released by his media aide Valentine Obienyem, the former Governor of Anambra State stated that he is currently in the United States contrary to claims of being one of the politicians blacklisted by the US authorities over the 2019 elections.
The statement read in part,
“Obi is a good brand such that organisations and countries are satisfied to associate with him because he has proved to be a highly responsible person/ politician.
“Those peddling the rumour are the same people that are exasperated by the honour coming his way and are desperately trying to associate his name with one crime or untoward action not purely out of hate, but out of the desire to prove that he is after all human and can sin a little.
