Alex Otti replies Anambra govt - Peter Obi left $150m in 3 banks

The trending latest news as chairman of Diamond Bank, Alex Otti, yesterday stated that former governor of Anambra State, Peter Obi left $150 million in three banks.
Current news report as his reaction may not be unconnected to claims by Anambra state government that Obi left an empty treasury. Otti, however, insisted that Obi was a prudent leader.


He spoke while delivering a keynote address: “Nigeria economic recession: Ways out of the woods”, at the 8th annual conference of the Academy for Entrepreneurial Study, at the Nigerian Institute for International Study, Victoria Island, Lagos.
Otti said Nigeria needed leaders who can inspire confidence in the people by doing what leadership required and that those in high positions should serve the
people and not themselves.
Otti then cited Peter Obi’s example.
“As the chairman of Diamond Bank as at the time Obi was governor, I can confirm that he left $50 million each in Diamond Bank, Fidelity Bank and Access Bank.
“I can also confirm that he did not borrow money from any financial institution”, he said.

Earlier in his speech, chairman of the event, Gen. Yakubu Gowon, represented by former Minister of Health, Julius Adelusi Adeluyi, urged leaders to focus on the people and called on Nigerians to intensify prayers for God to have mercy on the nation.
In his remarks, Peter Obi thanked the organisers for choosing a topic, he described as critical to the nation’s prosperity.
Obi said Nigerian leaders must have conscience to understand that leadership is all about serving and not being served.
He said Nigeria had all it takes to become a great nation, if leaders reflect on the trajectory of how successful economies are made.
