Kanayo expressed his gratitude, stating, “In 2011, I was to bury my mum and I had many senators I had friends, and I wrote to all of them. Two weeks after the funeral, Peter Obi called me at 1 am in his little voice, o sim ‘nwanne I just got your letter, I know the burial is over, You know I would have come if I had seen the letter’. He sent me exactly the price of a cow, the cow was 250k and that is what he sent to me. But the story here is he was the governor but he had time to call me.”
