The Chaplain of the National Association of Catholic Corps Members, Anambra State Chapter, Rev. Fr. Barr. Clement Muozobam, has described the Vice Presidential Candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Mr. Peter Obi, as a man whose exemplary past is compulsive reason why Nigerians must talk about him, discuss him in symposia and students even encouraged to base their projects on different aspects of his fruitful life.
The Reverend Father was speaking on Sunday during the Thanksgiving Mass at the National Youth Service Corps, NYSC, Camp at Umunya.
Fr. Muozobam said he followed the trajectory of Obi’s governance in Anambra State and life after government and concluded that Nigerians needed pious, humble and dedicated patriots like Obi if the country would move forward.
Recalling the assistance Obi has continued to render to the association, Fr. Muozobam said that what was intriguing was that he did all of that without his name being mentioned.
Speaking during the event, the former Dean, Faculty of Arts, Nnamdi Azikiwe University and pioneer Chaplain of Catholic Corps, Anambra State, Rev. Fr. Prof. Boniface Obiefuna, extolled the virtues of Obi. He said that what he did in Anambra State would never be forgotten, especially the turning of the education sector 360 degrees to make it envy of all in Nigeria.
Prof. Obiefuna called on the youth to remain steadfast in their endeavours and be close to God at all times.
The highlight of the visit was the presentation of the award of “Maxime Optimum Ducem” (Most Excellent Leader) to Mr. Peter Obi.
His representative, Dr. Edozie Aroh, expressed gratitude for the recognition, which he said would spur the former Governor to remain excellent in all his ways.
