Peter Obi and Banana
— Being an excerpt from the book ‘Anambra, From the Sublime to the Ridiculous’, written by Valentine Obienyem
“Obi’s basic principles in life have not changed. The other day, 6th of July, 2018, he requested that I buy some bananas for him in Awka. I called to inform him that I did not see good bananas in Awka and could not go to Agulu because of time constraint.
He spent the next 30 minutes lecturing me on why I should not have thought about going to Agulu because of bananas: ‘What is the cost implication? How can somebody think of going to Agulu to buy bananas for somebody in Awka? That’s sheer wastefulness.
“Was the banana recommended by a doctor, for it is only on medical condition should such course be approved, otherwise it would be sheer madness’ , Obi argued.”
