Peter Obi: The “Saint” Who Sinned

Peter Obi as a Governor was equivalent to the tortoise in the animal kingdom.

Saint Peter’s eight years of governance was never about job creation; it was not about human capital development; it was not about re-engineering government institutions; it was not about the state economy or improving revenue generation; it was not even about restructuring through local government autonomy you and your boss Atiku are promising; it was not about transparency as you were the alpha and omega that indiscriminately awarded contracts without bids.

As a governor, Peter was the only ‘wise man’ in Anambra State, the king that deceived his subjects, and ultimately a one-man administration that had no regards to democratic principles and ethics.

In the words of Chinua Achebe from ‘Things Fall Apart’: “Travellers with closed minds can tell us little except about themselves.”

Peter as a Governor was an embodiment of deceit, corruption, lies and worst still the arrogance.
