Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) chieftain, Tony Anenih has said that he doesn’t like his nickname “Mr. Fix-it.”

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.
