A recent trend on social media captured Bianca’s unapologetic confirmation of Peter Obi’s “stinginess” on the 16th of June. This was a reaction to Rev. Fr Mbaka’s comment about Peter Obi being too stingy to rule Nigeria.
In Bianca’s statement, she mentioned that Peter Obi had refused to purchase a 3,985 dollar suit for an occasion in Texas where he was expected to deliver a get-well message from Dr. Goodluck Jonathan. He had alternatively purchased a suit worth 220 dollars thereby saving 3,380 dollars.
She stated that to her greatest shock Peter Obi gave her an envelope containing 3,380 dollars while they accompanied him to the airport on his departure. He stated as she quotes,
“ Anyanwu, this is the balance of the money I would have paid for the ‘Ford’ suit. If the label on the suit was ‘Peter Obi’, I am wondering if anybody in America will pay that amount for it. I have deducted the amount we paid for that suit we eventually bought. Please use this balance for your Charity foundation to help those in actual need. I trust you will do so’.
She further clarified that this amount was used to save three families that were in dire need of support. In her statement she said;
“The eventual beneficiaries of that Largese were Madam Theresa Agbo, a yam seller who became penniless and displaced when her Yam shed was gutted by fire, Callistus Egbe who was bedridden due to illness and needed help with the school fees of his young children, and the Mgbemena family of six who were thrown out of their one-room accommodation (which we subsequently doubled to two rooms) because their breadwinner fell upon hard times and could no longer afford the rent.”
