According to him "I want to seize this opportunity to say a very big thank you to my Boss, Senator (Dr.) Orji Uzor Kalu, former Governor of Abia state for his support over the years.

Before my appointment as Technical Assistant (New Media), Office of the Vice President, Senator Kalu already appointed me a legislative aide in his capacity as a principal officer (Chief Whip) of the Nigerian Senate.

I had to resign the appointment for the 'presidential offer', after returning to him for deliberation on the new offer. He gladly encouraged me to take the presidential offer, while assuring me of his continuous support".

The Vice Presidential aide eulogized him as "a detribalised Nigerian leader who most other politicians should learn from. I am not his constituent or an indigene of Abia state, yet he went ahead to appoint me, even amidst protests by his constituents not to give out their slots to an outsider".. 

Continuing, he said that "Senator Kalu was able to defeat their argument, though, as he subtly explained to his people that he was appointing me based on my demonstration of loyalty, capacity and competence in what I do - digital media, having followed closely and known me for years".

The APC Chieftain added that Kalu went ahead to explain to his constituents that one of the things that has kept Nigeria where she is today is because people bring in sentiments into everything, including very critical and sensitive things. 

While expressing excitement for their time together and pledging to always support the Senator, Obin quoted Kalu as encouraging other Nigerian leaders to learn to engage people based on competence, experience and character and not just because they belong to their families, states, tribe or religion".
