Anambra-born business mogul, Oga Ndi Oga insists Obi must be president

By Toby Chuks

A business mogul and philanthropist, High Chief Godwin Agbasimelo has declared that an Igbo man from Anambra state remains the best option needed to address the myriad of challenges facing Nigeria at this level of its development.

Speaking to journalists over high rate of teething challenges posed by insecurity, increasing economic hardship and apparent confusion in government quarters at all levels, according to him, he said his findings on how to tackle the increasing rate of poverty, hunger, unemployment and other issues all over the places in Nigeria is to allow an Igbo man like former Governor of Anambra State, Mr Peter Obi to handle the affairs of this country as President to get Nigeria back on track.

Agbasimelo who is the owner of Oga Ndi Oga Foundation said people of civil service background could not fix Nigeria as they lacked the experience and capability.

He insisted that Nigeria needed a President who has business acumen, somebody who could manage human and material resources with ease based on many years of experience in the business world.

” I can assure you that you can get such a President in Igboland particularly from Anambra state because of the entrepreneurship of the Igboman. What I am saying is that an Igbo man from Anambra like Peter Obi will bring his business sagacity and acumen to bear on building the economy of Nigeria, creating job opportunities as well as mustering what it takes to deal with the security challenges facing the country.

“I can also assure you that Nigeria would have been stable under Peter Obi as President and we should not have all these problems of insecurity and economic hardship bedeviling the nation, “he said.

The Oga Ndi Oga boss buttressed his point by saying that an Igbo boy would leave his village with a nylon bag in his hand and before you know it he would use his brain to develop huge businesses, buy land and build shops, build market, build mansion in the city and go back to the village to build another mansion.

“There is no gainsaying the fact that such a tribe who knows how to develop business and build business from zero to hero with their brain is the kind of people that can manage the affairs of this country effectively.

“Make no mistake again to believe that someone with civil service background will muster the strength to fix Nigeria, no, it is not possible because civil service is more of paper work and so civil servants lack the experience and capacity to build the economy, create jobs and then deal with security challenges, “he added.

The Oga Ndi Oga boss also said he had the best plan to take Anambra state to greater heights not as a Governor but as a leader behind the scene with immense experience, ideas and knowledge on how to render good governance in the state.

He noted that he demonstrated his sagacity in leadership by building Labour Party to unprecedented reckoning during 2021 governorship election in Anambra state, adding that the Labour Party was on the threshold of winning the 2021 governorship election in the state before the candidate of the party was kidnapped without release two months to the election.

He lamented: “I picked a relatively unknown Labour Party and made it a mass movement that shook Anambra state using Oga Ndi Oga Foundation as the wheel but unfortunately the enemies of progress succeeded in kidnapping my cousin, Mr Obiora Agbasimelo who was the governorship candidate of the LP for the 2021 governorship election in Anambra state.

“The kidnapping of Obiora disorganized our plan towards the election because we rather went into mourning the absence of our candidate instead of going on with our campaign. I can assure you that LP would have emerged winner of Anambra 2021 governorship election, if our candidate was in the ballot paper because we had taken over the scene with mass movement and unbeatable campaign train.”

He said he would use the same method with which he transformed the LP to transform Anambra state, if given the opportunity to handle the Anambra situation coming up with the best.

“I used Oga Ndi Oga Foundation to transform the LP into a national reckoning in Nigeria. The adoption of the LP by the former Governor Peter Obi as platform to contest Presidential election is not unconnected with mass movement of the party in 2021 governorship election in Anambra State.

“Similarly, I will use the same method to transform Anambra by offering good ideas and knowledge that will guarantee the desired good governance using Oga Ndi Oga Foundation as the wheel, so let me use this opportunity to call on the good people of Anambra State to join the movement of Oga Ndi Oga Foundation to take Anambra to greater heights, “he concluded.
