•Ex-Governor Peter Obi.
•Ex-Governor Peter Obi.

Editor, kindly help me publish this article. I wrote it out of genuine conviction of the good work Mr. Peter Obi did in Anambra State.

Surprisingly, when I read the article this morning as syndicated by unknown persons, I noticed that they added three last paragraphs entitled “Peter Obi’s net worth”, which were not part of the original article that I wrote.

I could not have written of Peter Obi’s net worth, which I do not know. Like other Nigerians, I can swear that Obi owns not private plane and, in fact, travels economy. Obi we know does not own any yacht and property all over Nigeria.

They also wrote about the shopping mall he was supposed to have built in Awka. I am not aware of such. I know he started a Shopping Mall in Awka strictly as Governor and for the government.  Everybody knows that the mall at Abuja by Next was started before he became the Governor.

You could even see that the last three paragraphs is not my language. Whoever added those paragraphs is evil and should be treated as such.

Obi remains the best thing that has happened to Nigeria and no amount of addition and subtraction would affect the truth.

I have sent the complete article, including the three last paragraphs added by evil men. Kindly help me to publish.

My original article on Peter Obi

He became one of the most contradictory governors in Nigeria, a perfect manager, who knows the exact solution in every situation and the one, who generates a lot of questions around his personality. Who is Peter Obi, in fact? What are his achievements and what hidden rocks are present in his political career

Peter Obi’s net worth and achievement

Anambra State Governor

Peter Obi – the government executive of Anambra State during two terms with a break due to impeachment, he concluded his first term after court decision. In 2010, he won the election again. His path as a business man began from the post of the Chief Executive of Next International Nigeria Ltd.

Now Peter Obi is a deputy of the People Democratic Party. He created a very elaborate financial order in Anambra State, he was a henchman of the budget curtailment regarding unnecessary expenses, and he cut the waste of capital.

Peter Obi emphasised that “the resources we are enjoying today (oil inclusive) are diminishing assets, hence the need to save at least 10% for future generations.”

The next step after his warning was a Bill, sent to the State House of Assembly, further this Bill became a base for the law, which will be in effect until 2050.

He is a man of the clear idea and supports planning, his main idea, that without a plan you fail. He adopted an action program of UN Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) with the focus on several target sectors. He has succeeded in this and became the Best Governor in the realisation of the MDGs, therefore he got an invitation to appear at the 69th Session of the United Nations General Assembly in New York.

Education system

Among Peter Obi’s achievement was “reanimation” of the education. Before Peter Obi reforms, appropriation of funds for education was at a very low point. The next step was the returning of the management of former private schools to their initial owners, while the Government withheld the duties of capital spending. This has beaten a path to conceptually new collaboration between the State and Church. Under his direction, schools across the State received 750 school buses, together with each of 600 schools received N5 million each for creation of school testing rooms. All the secondary schools got Internet connection and computers.

HEALTHCARE

Another of the sectors, which fell for reforming, was the Health sector. Administration of Peter Obi built and equipped the state-of-the-art Anambra State University Teaching Hospital at Awka. Government Hospitals, Schools of Nursing, Schools of Midwifery and Schools of Health Laboratory Technology were re-equipped.

ROADS

Roads were the weak point in Anambra State, so reforms of Peter Obi affected the Roads sector. During Peter Obi’s term, more than 900 kilometers of roads and bridges were asphalted and reconstructed.

It is worthy to be noted, that Peter Obi undertook a social security system, and security system in the state and paid all debts (over N37 billion) for salaries and pensions State owed since1999.

PETER OBI AND FIDELITY BANK

Peter Obi is considered as the youngest Director of Fidelity Bank, Nigeria. There is one very interesting fact about link between the bank prosperity and election of Peter Obi as a governor. The accounting documents show that Fidelity Bank was unprofitable until Mr. Obi took the seat of the governor of the Anambra State. One year of the administration of Peter Obi passed and Fidelity Bank increased its profit by 219 percent, the growth of the profit continued with tremendous figures in the next years. In 2012, Fidelity Bank declared a growth of 608% in the after-tax profit. Nowadays, Fidelity bank takes the sixth place among other banks in Nigeria.

THE ADDED EVIL PARAGRAPHS

Peter Obi’s net worth

According to different sources, the net worth of Peter Obi has grown greatly in 2017. There is no exact figure, but his estimated net worth in 2017 is approximately $76,286,028, including properties, stocks and luxury goods, such as airplane and yacht.

In 2012, Peter Obi has finished the building of multi-billion naira Shopping Mall in Anambra State, it is estimated as the most huge shopping mall in the whole Africa. This private investment was questioned. This enterprise was beyond comprehension of many people. It was said that this extra huge building was created for the sake of Anambra State prosperity, but average citizens were 100 percent sure that Peter Obi has built it not for the Anambra State, but for himself and prosperity of his family.

Taking into account all above mentioned, we cannot say for sure if Peter Obi is a saint or a misappropriator of public funds; he is a contradictory person. Always a bad apple spoils the whole barrel, especially if the apple is not the only one. Many people describe him as one of the most disgraced governors ever, corrupt official, but citizens of Anambra State love and estimate him as a person, who did a lot for state and for life level improvement.
