Remember Saint Obi? The veteran actor famous for his roles in the movies Candle Light, Sakobi, Goodbye Tomorrow, Heart of Gold and Festival of Fire? well he came back on our radar when the news broke that he had purchased a Mercedes Benz 2015 G-Wagon SUV worth over 48 Million Naira. Denying the report, The actor/businessman said he believes in charity and he will keep investing in it rather than buying a car worth that amount.
“I am not a perfect being but I am very distant from those things written or adduced to my person. An example, I never bought any G-Wagon valued at 48 million Naira I dey craze?” he said.
“The real me is a very selfless person who will share my last 100 Naira with the needy; who is constantly thinking of ways to impact positively on other people and society, at large. I don’t like talking much; rather I let my works do my talking. I believe that charity, just like being a fine person must start from inward; hence if you visit my village, Umuezealaeze Alaenyi, Ogwa in Mbaitoli LGA of Imo State, I have done my little bit to help my people but more importantly inspire a new vision. Through the Grace of God Almighty, I was able to destroy 2 big shrines in my village, sunk boreholes, did road repairs, empower the young and old, etc.” He continued.
Obi who was reportedly a part of ex president Goodluck Jonathan’s campaign team added that “My actions are not limited to my village; in the cities, I am also constantly preaching against the Osu syndrome, crime, poor morals, religious and ethnic bigotry, the need to for education, amongst others… its possible to change the world and Nigeria if we only try.”
