The Vice Presidential candidate of the PDP, Mr. Peter Obi has condemned the attack of Maersk boss, Mr. Gildas Tohouo and the stabbing to death of his wife, Bernadett Kurucz. Obi was speaking to journalists in Abuja yesterday during the public presentation of “ The Big Interviews”, a book written by the immediate Managing Director of Sun Newspaper, Mr. Eric Osagie at the Musa Yar’ Adua Centre, Abuja, yesterday.
Obi said such an attack, besides diminishing our common humanity, was retrogressive to the country because of negative signals to investors that they were not safe in the country.
Obi who encouraged security agencies to make sure all those indicted in the attack are dealt with according to the law thanked the Lagos Police Commissioner for his assurances of safety to residents of Lagos.
Obi also took the opportunity to commend Mr. Eric Osagie in his book. He advised young journalists to see the likes of Osagie as role models. “The tenacity, hard work and resilience that saw him reach the peak of the career are stimulating examples that young ones can understudy”, Obi submitted.
