The Obi of Onitsha, Igwe Nnaemeka Achebe, has described Mr Peter Obi as a man who stands for the truth at all costs and a lone voice in an unstable world.

Igwe Achebe made the remark at the 6th Public Lecture of the Board of Fellows, Pharmaceutical Society of Nigeria (PSN), held at Nnamdi Azikiwe University, Awka. He explained that Obi’s stellar performance as Governor of Anambra State continues to be celebrated.

He praised Obi, the Labour Party presidential candidate in the last general election, as “a lone voice in an unstable world, speaking the truth and pursuing excellence”.

The monarch commended Obi for his strength of character, his passion for the betterment of the nation, and his commitment to doing what is right.

Also speaking at the event, the Chairman of the Board of Fellows, Pharmaceutical Society of Nigeria (BOF-PSN), Dr Joel Adagadzu, praised the former Anambra State Governor for setting a standard of excellence in governance.

Adagadzu noted that Obi’s achievements have become a legacy upon which others build.

“Though I am from a different political party than Peter Obi, and I promised not to discuss politics at this event, I must acknowledge his great achievements. He is not only a nationalist but a global personality. I am happy to be in Anambra State, and I appreciate him for leaving a legacy of excellence upon which others build,” Adagadzu said.

The event, which brought together prominent figures in pharmacy, was themed “Access to Quality Medicines in an Unstable Environment”. It focused on how the nation can eliminate counterfeit medicines and provide the public with access to quality drugs for better healthcare.
