Gov. Peter Obi: My governor, my brother Thanks a million!

Written by Emeka Chiakwelu
Governor  Peter Obi Governor Peter Obi

Every good thing has an end. It was just like yesterday that Governor Obi began his journey as the executive governor of Anambra State but on Monday March 17, he will  bow out and  hand over to another energetic and able gentleman Wilie Obiano.

 

 


"Time and tide waits for no man," as Geoffrey Chaucer correctly said. Eight years ran so fast and Governor Obi would bowed out of office with dignity and  prestige that has been rarely seen or experienced by any politican since the formation of Anambra State. In making this fabulous history and achievement it is now on record in the chronicle and annals of Anambra  history that Obi is the first and only governor in Anambra to have enjoyed two terms in the office. We hope that he will not be the last and that Willie Obiano will follow put.

 

 

 

The point of this article is not to write down the achievements of Governor Obi. These are the facts and the truth is that his achievements and accomplishments are numerous from provision of physical and social infrastructures to health facilities. His achievements covered the spectrum of human endeavors, propelling  community upliftment.

 

OBI CARES

What I am try to do is to  explore his human quality and caring he brought to bear in his eight years of occupying the seat of the governorship of Anambra Stae.  Obi cares for the people of Anambra and each time he carries the burden of the people.  This is quite important that a leader feels and understand the pains his people are going through. Take for instance you see Obi administering medical vaccination to children he held in his hands as the mothers of those children stood in awe.  He never separate or distance himself from the poor and less privileges citizens of the state.

 

OBI EMPATHIZES

One of the greatest tools  a leader can posse is the ability to show empathy to his fellow human being. Obi never gives excuse to be away from the people. One thing that is outstanding about him is that all Anambrians  are taken seriously as  stakeholders contrarily to selected few and godfathers.     When he celebrated his 50 years birthday, he did not throw an elaborate party for his friends and colleagues instead he celebrated his party in a remote primary school with children all around him.

 

OBI IS HUMBLE

Unlike most of our present leaders in Nigeria, whose commitments are inclined to expensive cars, designer clothes, watches, shoes and worldly accessories, Governor Obi is not imprisoned with vanity. He knows who he is and does not need expensive suits and accessories to express his profound intellectuality.  As a governor he has an open door policy and he is accessible to both rich and poor provided that you are logical and focused.

 

OBI  REACHES OUT

Pe' OKWUTE may be one of the smartest politicians in Nigeria. He is seasoned politician and he is a strategist. He knows when to make a move, when to talk, when to hold back and when to be  quite. He understood the act of politics which ponderously rests on alliance and friendship. Peter Obi is an architect of concord based on mutual benefits and respect. Governor Obi orchestrated what maybe perhaps  his greatest achievement: The reconciliation of Ndi-Igbo South east and minorities South south political zones.

 

SE and SS Reconciliation is a momumental Achievement

One of his greatest breakthrough was extending his hands of friendship to our brothers and sisters in South South political zone; when APGA supported President Goodluck Jonathan for his presidency and APGA did not file any presidential candidate. That was a great move and brought about  the reconciliation between SE and SS. Enhance forth the friendship between President Jonathan and Governor Obi deepened and became a source of joy and tangible returns to SE and Anambra State in paricular.

Okwute Ndigbo distinguish himself from his contemporaries with  hard work and commitment to a vision of achievements and the  strive to restore the dignity of Ndi-Igbo.  Governor Peter Obi feels and understands the heart beat of Ndi-Igbo


Yes, I knew him in Onitsha when we were growing up.  Obi went to Christ the King College (CKC) with my brothers Damian Chiakwelu and  Chuks Chiakwelu.  Even at that time he has been showing leadership quality and was industrious.  He always knows what he wants and God has abundantly blessed him.

 

Okwute Ndi-Igbo  I wish you the best - Godspeed.  Agu Igbo daalu !
