The former Governor of Anambra State, Mr. Peter Obi, has received the highest award by his Agulu community. He was given the recognition during the celebration of the 80th year anniversary of the foundation of the Agulu People’s Union at the St. Peter’s field, Agulu, on Sunday.

The event, which was the first in the history of Agulu, also saw Obi being the first to be enrolled in the Town’s Hall of Fame. Agulu people said that politics apart, Obi remained the person that has had the greatest positive influence on the town. The President General of the town, Chief Andy Orakwelu, said the recognition was because of Obi’s internationally recognised stature as an astute democrat, a human capital developer and an outstanding Administrator.

Receiving the award on behalf of Mr. Obi, who was outside the country, his former Commissioner for Housing, Engr. Dr. Patrick Obi, said that the award was a testimony that despite those opposing Obi coming largely from his town and local government, the people of Agulu are pleased with him and his accomplishments, which he described as equal to none in the state. 

Dr. Obi encouraged the people of Agulu to see Peter Obi for what he is and not from prisms coloured by jealousy and hate. Narrating what Obi should be to the people of the state, he used himself as an example. His words: “I once went for an interview; the moment the panel saw from my resume that I worked with Obi as a Commissioner, the interview ended, with the panel members agreeing that having worked with Obi at that level was enough proof of anybody’s positive, hard-working and focused credentials.”

Speaking to the press after the event, the Second Vice Chairman of Agulu People’s Union, Chief Stephen Okeke, described the award as apposite. He said that Peter Obi was good in all ramifications and described what he called his “excellent performance as the Governor and his unequalled empowerment of the people of the  town without undue noise”  as enduring legacies worth celebrating at all times.

The event witnessed the conferment of other categories of awards on many others.

Chaired by Dr. Chike Akunyili, the event was attended by the cream of the people of the town.
