Peter Obi Should be called to redeem Nigerian because, "He is a true leader indeed".
According to Muojeke Chidimma, who the story of him said, "Former governor of Anambra state, Peter Obi, was invited by the Chief Tax Officer in Onitsha to present evidence that he has paid his tax for six years.
Peter Obi decided to honour the invitation himself.
He came along with his aide and showed the Chief Tax Officer, Mrs Nwakpudolu Juliet, not his six years tax clearance certificate, but his twenty years tax clearance certificate showing that he has paid tax of N204million.
He said that it is important that citizens pay their taxes and that he was impressed with the way the chief tax officer invited him.
This is how it should be done: When people say you don't have something, you present it, not to hire twenty SANs to defend you, or to keep quiet, or to blame someone else for your crimes.
If it were some people, they would have started alleging that some people want to witch-hunt them by demanding their tax certificate.
Not Peter Obi.
To him, tax was something that ought to be paid.
The man's simplicity baffles me, honestly.
When he was governor, he could pass by without your knowing that a governor just passed by.
Before he left office as governor in Anambra state, he invited both the EFCC and the ICPC to check the financial book of Anambra state to ensure that no money is missing.
He used to calculate the number of bottles of wine left after the meeting of the State Executive Council, and ensure that the leftover is presented in the next meeting for drinking.
Someone said he used to buy flight tickets himself so that he does not pay more, despite being a governor.
The projects he did are there for all to see and he even left billions in the coffers of Anambra state while handing over.
That man is one of Igbo's finest and people like him should be called in to redeem Nigeria".
