 Former Anambra Governor Peter Obi left over $150 million in office, former Managing Director of Diamond Bank, Dr. Alex Oti, confirmed yesterday.

He was reacting to the debate on whether Obi left money or not.

Oti spoke while delivering the keynote address on the theme: “Nigeria Economic Recession: Ways out of the Woods” at the 8th Annual Conference of the Academy for Entrepreneurial Study, Nigeria in Lagos.

The former bank chief said Obi left over $150 million of state funds in Diamond, Access and Fidelity banks.

He hailed the former governor for achieving the feat despite his spectacular performance in Anambra in the area of delivery of infrastructure, education, industrialisation and other sectors.

Oti said more perplexing was that unlike other governors, Obi did not owe salaries, contractors and or borrow from any financial institution.

Obi’s feat, according to him, demonstrates Nigeria has good people who improve things when they get the opportunity to lead.

The former bank chief said: “What Nigeria needs now are leaders who should inspire confidence in the people by doing what leadership require: serving the people and not himself or his people.

“A good leader does not need to be reminded that leaders must cut costs, avoid unnecessary expenditure and encourage diversification, among others.” (The Nation)
