The cleric said that Obi’s lifestyle has continued to inspire millions of youths to do what is right.

His words: “The political class should begin to emulate Mr Peter Obi, who though not in government, has continued to use his resources to contribute to the nation’s development and make life better for the people.

“He lives above the walls of tribal and religious divisions to care for society. We follow the news and we see how he travels around the nation from the North to the South, East and West. He remains a shining example of citizenship to the youth and the political class. May God bless his endeavours, and grant his sincere desire to lead the nation better.”

Addressing the nursing and midwifery students, Obi maintained that investing in health, which is a critical measure of development, remains a vital tool for development.

He appreciated the management and staff of the institution for their efforts, while encouraging the students to remain committed to their studies.
