Ohanaeze Ndigbo Worldwide, the leading Igbo socio-cultural organization, joined millions of Nigerians in wishing Peter Obi, the Labour Party’s presidential candidate, a happy 61st birthday.
Ohanaeze said to him as a “game changer, soldier of morality, democracy archetype, the popular feeling of young politics, an abundance philosopher, prudent resource manager, eminent Igbo brazen icon, and an abundance philosopher”
The National Publicity Secretary of the Igbo apex group, Dr. Alex Ogbonnia, said in a statement released on Monday that Obi’s trajectory is studded with resourcefulness and inventiveness at every turn.
Obi, who served as a state governor and did not have any blemishes or tarnishes when he left office, is still regarded as a remarkable politician in Nigeria, according to Ohanaeze.
Obi is now universally admired and supported by the underprivileged, disenfranchised, and the disadvantaged on the one side, and plainly depressing to the oppressors, predators, and political marauders on the other.
“There is an axiom that has stood the test of time that a good name is far superior to money, silver, or gold. The viral Peter Obi phenomenon is the best example of this adage ever, according to the statement.
The article continued, “How else can one account for the continuous frightening Obi movement in modern Nigeria: a man whose record of achievements has countervailed the unfortunate and shameful collapse of Nigerian bourgeois cash and carry democracy?
Contrarily, Obi is now revered throughout all of Nigeria, not because of his incredible fortune, but rather because of the unstoppable power of good over evil, light over darkness, and virtues over vices.
“Ambassador Professor George Obiozor, President General of Ohanaeze Ndigbo Worldwide, is overjoyed that the rejected stone has effortlessly evolved into the cornerstone that unites the Nigerian underclass, including men and women of stature and distinction.
“My brother, Okwute, rest assured that July 19 will go down in history as the day a great African was born in Agulu Community, Anambra State, Nigeria: a man who with just the force of morals, uprightness, persuasions, and goodwill was able to alter the political narratives of the most populous and underdeveloped African nation.
