Shortly after leaving the PDP, Peter Obi joined the Labour Party and became the party’s flag bearer ahead of the February 25th presidential elections. With his influence, the party has become a third force and a major contender in the forthcoming general elections. From his impressive portfolio, here are ten interesting facts about Peter Obi.
1. He served as governor of Anambra State from 2006 to 2014 but his emergence as governor was not without a fight. After INEC declared Chris Ngige of the PDP as governor, Obi went to court to challenge the result of the elections and after three years in court, the court of appeal declared him as governor and he assumed office in March 2016.
2. In November 2016 (the same year he became governor), he was impeached but the impeachment only lasted for a few months as it was overturned and he returned as governor in February 2017.
3. Obi was awarded the prestigious National Honours Award of the Officer of the Order of the Niger (OON) in 2008 for his outstanding performance as governor.
4. He has also been recognized for his contributions to the growth and development of Nigeria's private sector and was awarded the Distinguished Service Award by the Nigerian Stock Exchange in 2014.
