The presidential candidate of the Labour Party in the last election, Mr Peter Obi has congratulated Emeka Nnadi, a Nigerian man based in Canada, for having a community park named after him in Winnipeg’s Bridgwater area.

The former governor of Anambra State in a post on his official X handle highlighted Mr Nnadi’s consistent leadership as the driving force behind this heartwarming recognition.

Obi however, called on Nigerians abroad to be good ambassadors and learn from Nnadi’s example by demonstrating quality leadership that enhances national pride.

He said, “I recently read an inspiring story about a Canadian-based Nigerian, renowned architect and community leader, Emeka Nnadi, who had a community park named after him in Winnipeg’s Bridgwater, Canada, due to his immense contributions to community development and societal growth.

“According to reports, the renowned Nigerian architect helped to develop the Bridgwater area, by transforming what in 2006 was roughly 600 hectares of provincially owned farmland into multiple neighbourhoods with thousands of homes.

“This is why I have consistently maintained that committed leadership, which will build a productive nation for our teeming youths, remains critical for national development. With the very diverse array of skills, talents and energy among the youths,

“We have all it takes to position our dear nation on the path of development, given the right leadership. I congratulate Emeka Nnadi for his outstanding contribution to community development in Canada, which earned him this recognition.

“I encourage him, and other Nigerians in the diaspora, to remain good ambassadors of our dear nation, and continue to contribute to our national development, as we build the New Nigeria which is possible.”
