Obi said Reasons Why Igbo leaders are angry and Nigerians are happy

Mr. Peter Obi’s emergence as vice-presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP last Friday was immediately laced with controversy arising from political intrigues from within the Southeast geopolitical zone.

Mr. Obi had faced many odds during his brief but eventful political career. And almost every time with one notable exception, he had overcome the odds. Last weekend, he overcame another challenge after he was announced as vice-presidential candidate of the PDP by Atiku Abubakar, the presidential candidate of the party.

 It was not as if Obi’s name came as a surprise to many Nigerians. He had almost consistently been mentioned as a possible running mate to any presidential candidate that emerged from the PDP. The reason was not too far-fetched.

 His period as governor of Anambra State between 2005 and 2013 proved to be one of the best testimonials that the country’s democracy could present. In his time as governor of Anambra State, roads were given a top priority that led to a network of motor able roads that linked all the major towns in the state. Even more, Mr. Obi’s legendary prudence set him out as a good manager of public resources. 

When he left office he left as much as N75 billion for his successor contrary to the narrative in nearly every other place where governors burden their successors with debts. he was able to clear the N35 billion pension debt he inherited and by the time he was leaving he was neither owing salaries nor pensions. However, his politics had not always been a fairy tale.

 After reclaiming his mandate through the courts in 2005, Mr. Obi had sought to stamp his political authority in the state through his All Progressives Grand Alliance, APGA. While he succeeded in taking control of the State House of Assembly from 2011 he, however, failed in replicating the feat at the national level with his failure to project APGA in the National Assembly.
