According to Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) chieftain, Tony Anenih, he’s not sure if the name is a compliment or an insult.
According to Anenih, he’s not sure if the name is a compliment or an insult.
He made the comments in his newly launched book, “My Life and Nigerian Politics.”
“I am aware that some people call me ‘Mr Fix It’. I think such people call me that name, either in contempt or in admiration,” he wrote.
“It is possible that they are being mischievous. A few questions arise here. Am I ‘Mr Fix It’ as a reformer or someone who always does things right?
“Am I being portrayed as who gets things settled or fixed. Am I being held out as someone who by hook or by crook achieves results with the belief that the end justifies the means?
“In any case, I do not enjoy this appellation. I have always believed in what I do and I always make sure I achieve success without listening to the crowd of voices. If I am called an achiever, that sounds more complimentary, satisfying and positive than the ambiguous impression which ‘Mr Fix It’ connotes,” he added.
Anenih also wrote that he blocked the presidential ambition of former Vice President, Atiku Abubakar.
