Some of us don’t like Mr. Peter Obi .. Our phobia is the level of transparency he is bringing on board that we are not used to and it’s not only scary but will open up who we truly are .. we were not trained like that..
But no matter how you express your beef and anger against him there are facts you cannot change which include;

  1. He ran the most secured state in Nigeria during his tenure. Former IGP Abubarkar gave him 5 years accollades of the most secured state back to back for 5 years.
  2. The minister of works then gave him the best accolade of a governor that built 800km of road network in 8years
  3. Educationally , He met Anambra at 26th position in 2006 and left it at 1st by 2014 when he was leaving.
  4. He was the only governor that met the millennium development goal in Nigeria in both education and health. In fact , Milinda and bill gate foundation gave him a personal gift of 1 million dollar for his achievement. Which he dropped in the state account rather than putting in his own private account.
  5. He is the only former governor today that does not collect pension, gratuity, land gift and allowances since he left the govt in 2014.
  6. When he became SEC chairman under President Jonathan, he told SEC to hold back all his allowance and entitlement as a Board chairman . He left without nothing. He said he does not need them.

When he was chairman of fidelity bank , he was entitled to two brand new cars annually. He told the board. I don’t need them. Let me just come for meetings and go home.

You can only be angry with him. You cannot change the facts.. so choose between moving forward and going backwards.. If you can outline these facts for any other candidate, I will drop Obi today..
