Obi made the declaration speaking yesterday at the   17th  Annual Convention of the Igbo Youth Movement at the Nike Lake Hotel, Enugu. Obi, who bagged the ‘Best Governor Ever,’ award said that those in government spent a lot of money on things that were not necessary, while running out of money for projects that would enrich the people.

Using himself as an example, Obi said that when he was the governor, that he did not keep guest houses, charter planes,  travel with more people than necessary, fly Business Class or  use bullet proof vehicles, among others.
