The Former Governor Of Anambra State , Sir Peter Obi, Got More Than He Bargained As Dr Alex Ekwueme Lashed and Described Him as a " Total Embarrassment " To Igbo Nation. The former Gov. of Anambra State, sir Peter Obi ,the former Vice President, Dr. Alex Ekwueme and wife, Chief mrs. Beatrice Ekwueme , prominent Igbo sons and other dignitaries attended a reception in honor of the Minister of Foreign Affairs, Mr. Geoffrey Onyeama at the Nike Hotel, Enugu on 24/06/16. Based on our reporter's submission, it was a serene environment but trouble started when sir Peter Obi walked up to microphone stand uninvitedly to speak about problems facing Ndi Igbo. Initially, he made some valid points when he called on the general Igbo race to love themselves, live in unity and oneness, these attracted people's attention and applauses .Then , Obi switched over to Biafran issue, he started giving the public reasons to ignore and allow Dr Nnamdi Kalu to rot in jail , called Nnamdi Kalu a candidate of psychiatric clinic on mirage mission .He went further to call Nnamdi Kalu a rebel that secretly and illegally came into Nigeria simply to damage Buhari's Administration
As if that was not enough, he swung into another topic , sir Obi started to enumerate the benefits the Igbos and the entire south Eastern states stand to get if they accept to give out lands to Hausa Fulanis as grazing zone. Sir Peter Obi's remarks did not go down well with the public and the MC of the occasion who was signaled , walked up to him and snatched the microphone from him.Some prominent Igbos present at the occasion could not hide their feelings as they started calling Obi traitor, betrayer , two faced saw etc. At this point, the former Vice President, Dr Alex Ekwueme and wife rose to leave the occasion in annoyance but sir Peter Obi rushed to them and made them seat back on their seats. Obi took his time pleading and trying to convince Dr Ekwueme but the elderly man Ekwueme discharged him saying, Gregory, stop the attitude of " Notice me or I quench " it will only earn you embarrassment and hate. The occasion we are in today is exclusively for merry and as such, does not warrant your attack on Nnamdi Kalu or trying to convince Ndi Igbo to adopt and support you in piloting the affairs of Ndi Awusa by giving them our lands as grazing field for their cows and cattle.I am sorry but I think that you are a total embarrassment to Ndi Igbo , always think before you act and not act before you think. It was a complete dance of shame for sir Peter Obi as he was seen moving from person to person, begging them to stay back and enjoy the occasion that he didn't mean to destroy their happiness but it was rather too late for him as most dignitaries stormed out of the venue in displeasure.
