The Vice-Presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the 2019 elections, Peter Obi, has debunked reports that he was denied a visa to the United States.

One Facebook user, Austin Brown, has claimed that Obi was denied the visa due to an alleged fraud.

According to him, Obi, Monday, was denied visa by the American Embassy after an alleged report by the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) indicting him as the third most fraudulent politician in Nigeria in the last five years.

He, also, claimed that the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) in the US in July indicted Obi over a $10 billion found in a Swiss bank account linked to him.

However, in a statement by Valentine Obienyem who is the media aide to Obi, the allegation is the handiwork of his principal’s enemies.

“What a confused bunch! Since he left government, his records which nobody is even trying to surpass, still speak for him,” the statement added.

“Some of them are: He bequeathed over 75 Billion Naira to his successor; completion of all the roads started by his predecessor and construction of massive roads that made Anambra during his time to be regarded as the best in network of roads; return of schools to the Church and provision of over 6 Billion Naira used to rehabilitate the schools, as well as provision of two buses to them; Internet connectivity; boreholes; sporting equipment; computers and generators to power.”
