he immediate past Governor of Anambra State and Vice presidential candidate of the People’s Democratic Party, PDP, in the last presidential election, Mr. Peter, Has described the appointment of Dr. Ernest Ndukwe as the Chairman of the Board of MTN as a good development, which beyond its immediate significance, offers a great leadership lesson to organizations and countries across the world.
Speaking in Abuja, Obi said he was elated not just at the appointment of Ndukwe, but that of every other member of the Board. According to him, the development showed that people’s pedigree and past achievements in the corporate world were taken into consideration.
‘MTN has always had great boards. The immediate past Chairman, Dr. Paschal Dozie, is a corporate titan and the only way to sustain the track record of excellence is by appointing another corporate titan whose honesty and integrity stand him out among the crowd,’ Obi noted.
Further, Obi advised Nigerians and other corporate bodies to follow the footsteps of the MTN by only recognizing men with honour in both appointive and elective offices.
