Professor Ndubuisi Ekekwe reacts to Soludo calling out Peter Obi
Harvard professor Ndubuisi Ekekwe has reacted to the recent call out from Governor Soludo concerning his predecessor Peter Obi.
To Anambra State people: Some avian have mobilized here to buy out all the next to nothing investments Governor Soludo said Governor Peter Obi made as a governor.At least, Anambra is lucky that the Governor has bragged about attracting KFC and Domino’s Pizzas as a sign of strategic investments in the state.
professor solido underwhelmed and I am extremely disappointed reading his recent comments on Peter Obi. It was offensive and extremely unfortunate. He wrote and spoke like a lost intellectual, not a professor of economics. In southeast Nigeria, we used to mock Anambra State that it’s young people were not going to school, always moving into trading. It was ranked 27th out of 36 I’m the nation in WAEC and nearly 30th in JAMB.
Magically, within years, Anambra was ranked #1 in WAEC and top-3 in JAMB . For a professor to say that was not an investment must be repudiated . That effort boosted Anambra within 8 years,according to NBS data.
Professor Soludo, you need to understand that you are a teacher even as you live in the government mansion. Development is not just about building houses,roads,and companies .
The biggest investment remains the people . Your state is ranked #1 in the southwest in education attainment & development today,and that happened because Obi invested in young people when others did not care .
Make your point but do not use your position to confuse ; certain things should be off politics. You are free to attack Obi,Tinubu ,Atiku,etc while promoting your party candidate ,but be decent with facts!
