Labour Party presidential aspirant, Peter Obi, has sparked mixed reactions from netizens as he discusses his frugal approach to spending.

In a video circulating online, the former governor of Anambra State shared his perspective on spending money. Peter Obi stated that he cannot justify paying N250,000 per night to stay at a hotel.

Peter Obi emphasized that he is not against people spending their money as they see fit, but he is against the wasteful use of public funds.
