By Mazi Odera
A former Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria, Professor Chukwuma Soludo has described Governor Peter Obi as a man of destiny whose disciplined and God-fearing life has insured his success in life. He said this yesterday during the memorial thanksgiving mass at St Theresa's Catholic Church, Isuofia in honour of Soludo's mother-in-law. He commended the Governor for his numerous achievements and noted that he has laid strong foundation for sustainable development which he said future administration could consolidate. He said the State needed a credible successor to him to sustain the gains of the past.

Soludo disagreed with the Governor's plan to retire from politics, saying that the country needed people like him especially during these trying times.

In his remarks, the parish priest, Rev. Michael Nwajiobi enjoined Christians not to run from pillar to post in search of Miracle but should surrender their lives to God and remain steadfast in whatever position they found themselves to attract divine intervention. He said Governor Peter Obi had sacrificed a lot to make the State a model and noted that his vision and mission had transformed all sectors of the State.

In another development, Gov. Obi said the State Government would soon roll out more interventions for schools in the State. He said this at Agulu Girls' Secondary School, where during the commissioning of the School's Hall renovated by the State Government. Governor Obi also commissioned the access road to the school also reconstructed with the support of the State government.

He assured that the school will also benefited from the new projects to be initiated for schools and expressed satisfaction that schools in the State are now wearing new look through the State partnership with the church.

In his own remarks, the Catholic Bishop of Awka, Most Reverend Paulinus Ezeokafor said the collaboration with the State government had made clear differences which others should emulate.
