The immediate-past Governor of Anambra State, Mr. Peter Obi, has expressed satisfaction with the level of governance in the South-East geo-political zone. He made the observation in Lagos on Sunday when Ndigboamaka, a scoio-cultural organisation, honoured him for the exemplary leadership he had continued to provide for the Igbo in particular and Nigeria in general.
Speaking after the presentation of the ward, Obi said the governors of Igbo states had continued to improve the standard of lives in the geo-political zone through responsible governance hinged on the provision of infrastructure.
He called on Head Bridge traders to thank the Governor of Abia State, Chief Theodore Orji, for helping to ensure that the Onitsha Drug Market was not closed and his continued provision of quality leadership to the South-East Governors’ Forum. Presenting the award to Obi, the President General of Ohanaeze Ndigbo, Chief Nnachi Enwo-Igariwey said the award was in recognition of Mr. Obi’s penchant for striving to achieve excellence in all he did, especially the excellence he brought to bear on the way and manner he piloted the affairs of the government of Anambra State for eight years.
Describing the awardee as a round peg in a round hole, Chief Igariwey thanked the former governor for remaining steadfast in all that he did and had continued to do for the good of Igboland and the country.
Following his general refusal as the former Governor to accept awards when he was the Governor, except on cases he could not resist, many organizations in Nigeria are falling over one another in the bid to honour the former Governor of Anambra State, Mr. Peter Obi for his vision, courage and exemplary conduct as the Governor of Anambra State.
