Former vice-presidential candidate Peter Obi on Tuesday rescued some stranded students while he was returning to Anambra from Nsukka, Enugu State.
Mr Obi intervened when he came across an accident scene of a vehicle conveying 12 female students of Federal Government College, Ezzamgbo to various destinations in Anambra State.
Obi’s spokesman Valentine Obienyem said that as they came across the scene the former Anambra governor, who was earlier hurrying to meet up with a scheduled meeting in Anambra requested the driver to stop, insisting it would be inhuman and bad fatherhood to pass the children by without helping out.
Mr Obienyem added that the students and their luggage were carried in one of Obi’s vehicles.
“Even if I do not attend the meeting of today because of these children, I will be satisfied and fulfilled,” Obi was quoted as saying.
