Nigeria Needs A Man Like Peter Obi To Move Forward – Clerics



The Onitsha Archdiocesan Health Coordinator Rev. Fr Basil Ekwunife and chairman, Onitsha Archdiocesan Hospital Board Rev Fr Patrick Omuta have both described a former vice-presidential candidate Peter Obi as the man who has the knowledge, character, passion, drive and the much-needed integrity to lift Nigeria from decadence.

The clerics spoke at the weekend during the end of year party organised by Holy Rosary Specialist Hospital and Maternity, Waterside, Onitsha, Anambra.
The duo appreciated Mr Obi for gracing the occasion and lauded him for his philanthropic gestures across the country.


“We are always proud to have Mr Peter Obi in our midst, because we know how great a leader and accomplished achiever he is. In this hospital he had his first cry and first smile as a newly born baby. Over the years he has continued to spread that same smile through his responsible governance, philanthropic gestures and deep insights into issues of national importance,” they said.

Fr. Omuta particularly praised Obi for his simplicity, humility and humane approach to issues.
Obi who donated N1 million to the hospital stated that he would never be tired of investing in and supporting the health sector which, according to him, “is always making serious sacrifices to ensure that society is rid of sicknesses and diseases.”


He lauded the church for always maintaining the standards of hospitals, schools and other establishments under their care, saying such is the kind of beneficial partnership between the church and the government that should be encouraged for societal development.
