NO APOLOGIES, PLEASE, On Peter Obi’s supposed ‘Stinginess’ by Bianca Ojukwu

Sometime in 2009, ‘Mr’(as he most popular to be addressed) Peter Obi, Governor Of Anambra State on the time, visited Dim Chukwuemeka Odumegwu Ojukwu and myself at Dallas, Texas. He got here to ship a get properly message from Dr Goodluck Jonathan and was billed to attend a black tie occasion on the Dallas Marriot.

Curiously, he flew into Dallas airport with one small stick with it baggage which he insisted on wheeling round himself, and on attending to our residence requested to clean up. He opened his stick with it, full of information and paperwork and some toiletries and an additional shirt, when the Ikemba and I requested if he was anticipating one other merchandise of baggage, and he mentioned no.
‘Then, what will you be wearing to the event tonight?’, we inquired. It was at that time that it struck him that he couldn’t present up in his casuals at such a ceremony.

I insisted on taking him to the posh males’s emporium at Nieman Marcus to purchase a wise black go well with. When we bought there, he was busy doing the Dollar to Naira foreign money conversions. The go well with that was an ideal match for him was a dapper Tom Ford go well with with a price ticket of three,985 {dollars} plus tax.

He did the calculations and advised me ‘Do you know how many students this amount of money can train in Nigeria?’ I reminded him that he was the governor in addition to the particular visitor, and for the caliber of company anticipated at that night’s event, together with the mayor, senators and captains of conglomerates amongst others, he wanted to be wearing prime kind.

To minimize the story brief, he refused to pay what he termed ’that outrageous worth’ for the Tom Ford go well with and that was how we ended up at Steinmart the place he agreed to pay a extra acceptable worth of 220 {dollars}, tax inclusive, for a fundamental males’s go well with which he was joyful to put on to that night’s occasion.

What struck me, was that as we have been on the way in which to the airport to see him off for his return flight again to Nigeria, he reached for his pocket the place he introduced out an envelope of crisp hundred greenback payments. The quantity within the envelope was 3,800 {dollars}.

He mentioned ‘ Anyanwu, this is the balance of the money I would have paid for the ‘Ford’ go well with. If the label on the go well with was ‘Peter Obi’, I’m questioning if anyone in America can pay that quantity for it. I’ve deducted the quantity we paid for that go well with we ultimately purchased. Please use this steadiness on your Charity basis to assist these in precise want. I belief you’ll achieve this’. We all laughed heartily. Vintage Peter Obi!

The eventual beneficiaries of that Largese have been Madam Theresa Agbo, a yam vendor who grew to become penniless and displaced when her Yam shed was gutted by {fire}, Callistus Egbe who was bedridden because of sickness, and wanted assist with the college charges of his younger youngsters, and the Mgbemena household of six who have been thrown out of their one room lodging (which we subsequently doubled to 2 rooms) as a result of their breadwinner fell upon exhausting instances and will not afford the lease.

In Life, You both stay by your creed otherwise you desecrate the mould by which the Almighty created you. Any progressive nation measures a person by his values, not his vaults.
If this lifestyle is what’s derided as ‘stinginess’ on the a part of Peter Obi, then all of us have to undertake this mould for a extra sustainable and extra humane atmosphere.
