Peter Obi empowers university’s graduate who moved him to tears in Abuja
The presidential candidate of the Labour Party, Peter Obi, on Saturday revealed that he had fulfilled his pledge to assist a graduate, Gimba Sophia Emmanuel, in her aspiration to acquire an oven and start her baking and confectionery business.
He made this known on his verified Instagram page.
He said “Today, I fulfilled my pledge to assist Ms Gimba Sophia Emmanuel in her aspiration to acquire an oven and start her baking and confectionery business.
“Interestingly, she had indicated that she would procure a Nigerian-made oven, thus enhancing the value chain and putting into effect the production to consumption mantra.”
PlatinumPost reports that Obi was moved to tears while sharing Sophia’s story, who is said to be a graduate from a university in Nasarawa State, during his press conference on Thursday.
The former Anambra governor, who battled with tears while narrating his encounter with the lady, had said the inability of of Sophia to afford N85,000 for oven prompted her to pick up a relatively poor job instead of engaging in baking business that she learnt after graduating without a job.
