Celebrated former governor of Anambra State Sir (Chief) Peter Obi is an enigma, having blazed the trail in with his governance and stewardship style in Anambra State -Nigeria. Okwute Ndigbo as he is fondly called won accolades locally and internationally while in government and has continued to win them even after vacating his position, with his holiness the Pope even conferring on him a knighthood, a great honour and a crowning of his status as a devout catholic and leader. The latest honor is the invitation of this illustrious son to the Democratic National Convention which was held in Philadelphia, USA last night
His boisterous aide could not hide his excitement and expressed delight at the invitation
which he claimed was from the highest quarters. According to the aide "At first he doubted its authenticity, because, in our country today, those bent on giving us bad name use every thing for fraud.Well it required a few phone calls to confirm its authenticity.
I am thinking of making the letter public because of its consoling wordings. A paragraph proudly reads: "You are among few outstanding individuals we extended invitations to because, having followed your politics in your country over the years, we are convinced that you share a lot with our party. We are also aware of fundamental changes you brought to your country through belief in the rule of law..,"
