Why Peter Obi is called Okwute REVEALED

Anambra State Governor, Mr. Peter Obi finally bowed to pressure yesterday and accepted a chieftaincy title as the Okwute of Igbo land in Awka amidst pomp and pageantry.

The traditional ruler of Onitsha Kingdom, Igwe Alfred Nnaemeka Achebe decorated him assisted by other prominent monarchs in Anambra like Igwe K. O Orizu of Nnewi, Igwe P. C. Ezenwa of Oba and Igwe Onwuneme of Ikenga.

Obi Achebe in a remark said that the traditional rulers in the south east unanimously agreed to bestow on Obi the prestigious title of Okwute (the rock) of Igbo land in recognition of his numerous development strides he carried out in Anambra state and his prominent leadership roles in the entire Igbo land.

He described the honor done to Obi as well deserved and also announced that the wife of the governor, Mrs. Margaret Obi has been decorated too with the title of Ona Chinyelu diya ( special ornament given to his husband by God).

Igwe Achebe also noted that Obi’s eight years in office has been eventful and said the monarchs in Igbo land and other Igbo sons and daughters are already looking up to him to assume a higher responsibility in the presidency someday.

Otti, who is a governorship aspirant on the LP platform in Abia State, described Obi as an iconic Nigerian whose presidential ambition has elicited “deserving encomiums and excitement, support and solidarity across political, ethnic and religious lines”.

The former bank chief executive expressed his feelings in statement, noting that “honest Nigerians of all classes” are indeed rooting for Obi because they “cherish excellence wherever and whenever they see it”.

Obi, fondly called Okwute (the Rock) by his admirers, had abandoned the PDP presidential race. He later joined LP where he was returned unopposed to become the presidential candidate of the party during its presidential primary held in Asaba, Delta state.

“Okwute is a national asset, a beacon of hope, and a colossus of high proportion whose administrative skills, managerial acumen and honourable disposition in leadership have contributed immensely in resetting and reshaping the hitherto pervasive mindset of mediocrity and profligacy in public service,” Otti said.

He expressed joy that his June 8, 2020 article published in his Backpage column in Thisday Newspapers is being made manifest today as many Nigerians have begun to see the genius in the man he himself has known for years.

In the referenced article with the title: “The Triumph of Profligacy Over Prudence” Otti had dedicated it to Mr. Obi and x-rayed his leadership excellence and accomplishments anchored on saving costs and prudent management of resources.

According to the governorship aspirant, it was the inherent sterling qualities in Obi that made another equally accomplished, iconic Nigerian in the person of Prof Pat Utomi to step down for the former vice-presidential aspirant.

He noted that Utomi not only found Obi worthy enough to become the LP presidential flag bearer in his place but also spoke eloquently about how highly placed and revered Obi is in the Nigeria of today.
