He stated this when featured on Channels Television's Politics Today, which was monitored by TRIBUNE ONLINE on Thursday.
He also promised to run a “lean government” and support the private sector to create jobs.
“We are going to run a lean government. We are going to cut our coats according to our size (cloth). We believe it is the private sector that should be supported to create jobs. And whatever it takes to support private sector, we do exactly that.
“But we are not going to run bogus governance. We are not going to get ourselves involved in very high cost of travel. There is a State that spent N2 billion within a year to charter private jets. That does not make sense.
“I find out a lot is spent on buying expensive wines and champagne, among others. That is also not responsible.
“So, we're going to run a lean government to be able to cut the cost of government to support the economy,” he said.
He added; “We in Labour Party no dey give shishi but that does not mean we will be unreasonable. No, far from it. We will be very reasonable. Peter Obi is also very reasonable. He just doesn't throw away money and always ensure he get maximum value for that money and that include going to the market to price it himself…”
