Most Reverend Augustine Echema, the newly consecrated Bishop of the Catholic Diocese of Aba, has called on Nigerians from all walks of life to emulate former Anambra State Governor, Peter Obi.
The cleric made the call on Sunday during his first mass as the Bishop of the Christ King Catholic Church, Aba Diocese.
“Not only his life as a politician, I have observed him closely and can say that he lives good Christian life, which is sadly missing among many politicians,” Bishop Echema said.
The bishop also stated that if Obi had been given the opportunity to serve in the last presidential election, humanity would have benefited from his selflessness and great leadership.
In his remarks, Obi noted that Nigeria was at a crossroads due to cumulative years of failed leadership.
He urged all Christians to pray to God to soften the hearts of leaders so that they will realize that public money is specifically for public service.
