Vinny A remarked:
"Decency, humility, personable, articulate and honesty personified. A man beyond reproach. Every aspirant in the last Anambra election just wanted to be like Obi. But, unfortunately the best president Nigeria may never have."
Ifeanyi Aneke thought:
"Wow! This man is just a replica of my father. His minimalist lifestyle, his mode of dressing, his dedication to helping people and his strong belief in his Catholic faith. When he was making that coffee and I was looking at his back, all I could picture was my father."
Ephraim Gonzo opined:
"This is what I call wealth, I mean for over thirty something years of my existence in Nigeria this is actually the first time I'm seeing a wealthy man and what I mean by a wealthy man is not deep pockets but deep thoughts. May the most high continue to preserve you Mr Obi."
