A Nigerian man has narrated his encounter with former governor of Anambra state, Mr Peter Obi, on a train in the United Kingdom. The man revealed how awed he was by the politician's simplicity.

Read what was shared on Facebook by Apga Alaigbo

We do not know each other, but I follow you closely on Facebook. I am from Anambra though I live in the UK. I have heard so much about our former Governor, Mr. Peter Obi.

We became more interested in him after the platform speech. Even in my work place, Nigerians there debated the speech. We agreed that if indeed all he said were reflection of his life, that we have at last discovered a NIgerian fit to be entrusted with national leadership. Though some of us swore that that was how he lived, some of us, including me, were are a bit skeptical.

Today, this morning, as I was in a train going to work, he entered and at first stand when all seats were occupied. He later sat down. Out of curiosity of meeting a Nigerian of his status scrambling for train, I got his pictures.

There is nothing wrong with entering train like every other person. In the UK and others climes, former high government officers join public transport and are happy. In fact this is one of the reasons they strive to lead well, because what they provided would be what they will enjoy.

In the UK, what former Governors and others do is to cruise around city in limousines.

After the snapping, I went to meet Mr. Obi who told me that he would stop at Green Park and that he was going for Commonwealth meeting at Marlborough House. It was happy I met and engaged him.

Beautiful nonsense embarassed embarassed embarassed

He disorganised Anambra State ---dividing her along visible lines ---benefiting only him and his alone.

I am sure if he has the chance of becoming a Mayor in UK, he would repeat the same performance. Nonsense.

In UK, his actions (as governor) would not be tolerated for even one month. Hopeless situation. He would have been jailed.

Someone ordinary Aisha Buhari would defeat by landslide in 2019 elections embarassed embarassed embarassed

Why weren't you asking him why he's not sitting on a train, amongst his constituents, in his home State in Nigeria? Why does it have to be in far away London?

Obi is so humble that even as Governor of Anambra State he was still using his old Mercedes 200 and Peugeot 504 Saloon. It was so embarrassing for his younger brother who owns Next Cash and Carry who then decided to buy him a brand new Mercedes with a harsh word for him 'please stop embarrassing us' you are the State governor for goodness sake.

[b]I understand where this man is coming from.

Personally, it is difficult not to like Peter Obi and what he stands for. When he took office and for most parts of his 8 years, he was a voice crying in the wilderness populated entirely by PDP. He did not have a supporter in the state house of assembly or in the local government as PDP had won all the seats. The attempt to impeach him followed soon after he was sworn in. He won.

An election was held to replace him before he had served his turn and an impostor occupied the government mansion in Awka. Mr. Obi was back in court to refight a fight he had won. Mr. Uba would not budge and the fight went on for a while until Obi won again.
During all these battles he did not really have a loyal deputy governor.

Despite all his domestic troubles the National Governors elected him as their head. PDP had over half of the governors as members, ACN had up to six, and other parties had four or five. APGA, Mr. Obi’s party, had just one, Mr. Obi. Yet he was reelected by his peers. See what has happened since he left that national platform.

Until 2011 I went to Nigeria every year for many years and traveled through all the 6 zones each time. Anambra was at par or above par in all the years of Obi’s administration. Roads were paved. Schools had much more than chalk as teachers were teaching and students were learning with modern equipment: computers, laboratories, and reasonable infrastructure even though Anambra was/is a war thorn area. No other state government could say the same things.[/b]
