MR. PETER OBI (EX-GOVERNOR): I’m More of a Trader than a Politician (Read)

Interviewed by Funke Olaode

You are often referred to as Mr. Simplicity. Is this a reflection of your personality?

Well, I have never really believed in retinue of aides whether in or outside of the public office. My philosophy is that you just have to live your life because office is a temporary position. I have been a bank chairman and was once a governor. While I was in all these positions I lived a very simple life. If you call it a reflection of my personality, I am humbled.

Aren’t you afraid of being attacked as some ex-public officials still move around with security apparatus?
Who will attack me? Nobody will attack me. I do not owe anybody and I don’t know why anybody would want to attack me. What did I do? For instance, you met me sitting alone. It is a lifestyle because it gives me time to think and ruminate over everything and anything. You know one of the most important aspects of my life is thinking, having a time to reflect on your life and what you are doing. How you are helping humanity and most importantly on how best you can help in building a better country.

Why I Did A Nude Photo Shoot Before My Breast Reduction: American Blogger Kadia Blagroveell Tells Her Story To Inspire Other Women Facing Similar Challenge

 is an American  cultural writer that contributes regularly for Huffington post, she recently had a surgery to reduce her big breast which was a burden to her but before she did, she did a photo shoot to celebrate her body in her own unique way 

See the photos  and read her interesting article below:    
I love my body. I believe my body is a magnificent work of art — a canvas painted brown, stroked with curves, accented with dimples and decorated with stretch marks.  As author Rainbow Rowell penned in her novel Eleanor & Park, “She never looked nice. She looked like art, and art wasn’t supposed to look nice; it was supposed to make you feel something.” Some days I don’t know how to feel about this work of art. There are times my reflection empowers me and there are times I’m overly critical. Today I want to celebrate this body of work because soon it will be just a memory — actually, it will soon just be photographs. 
I’m getting a breast reduction in a few days.
