Peter Obi On Why He Went Naked In Front Of Female Nurses

Peter Obi the erudite former Governor of Anambra State has explained why he went naked before two young nurses in Enugu State.

Peter Obi said this incidence happened in a hospital in Enugu State, he said he did that so he could be treated as a patience, News Mail reports.

Speaking during the maiden convocation of the College of Nursing Sciences, Diocesan Hospital, Amichi in Anambra State on Saturday, Peter Obi said he wanted to be treated as a patient and nothing more.

Describing how important and sensitive the medical and nursing profession is, the former Anambra governor said he had no problem with being examined naked in the presence of a young doctor and the two young female nurses.

“Even when the young female nurses, seeing me, wanted to leave, I insisted otherwise while appealing to them to see me as a patient and not as a former governor,” Obi said.

He recalled how no health institution was accredited in Anambra when he was governor and how his partnership with the church resulted in the establishment of 12 accredited health institutions, including schools of nursing and midwifery.

Obi joined other speakers in thanking Anglican bishop of Amichi and the proprietor of the school Ephraim Ikeakor for remaining committed to hard work that has enabled him achieve feats beyond imagination. He assured him that he would remain part of the development of the school, since education, according to him, is the driver of the world today.

In his speech, Bishop Ikeakor said he was overwhelmed with joy at the level the school has reached since 2015 when the journey started.

He revealed that Obi has committed over N100 million to the hospital starting from when he was governor.

The highlights of the event was the presentation of forty new graduates of the school to the secretary general/ registrar of the Nursing and Midwifery Council of Nigeria, Faruk Abubakar.

Some of them were presented with distinguished academic awards, with Peace Okoye receiving the award as overall best graduating student.

Nightingale Awards were also presented to incumbent Governor Willie Obiano of Anambra State, Obi, Abubakar and Chris Azubogu.
