Did ex Governor lie about his wrist watch?

Peter Obi says he's worn one wrist watch for 17 years and we actually believe him.

That means Obi has been wearing the same wrist watch since 2000.

These are all recent images of Obi.

Or maybe Obi changes the clock plate and straps of his wrist watches annually?

You be the judge.

Or maybe we need a committee to ascertain whether...
