Education is your future, Obi tells students
FORMER Governor of Anambra State, Mr. Peter Obi, has challenged the students of St. Patrick’s Secondary School, Obollo Eke in Enugu State to strive to achieve greatness in their lives by taking their education seriously.
Obi while presenting a cheque of N2m to the school said it was his little contribution to them for infrastructure upgrade for quality and sustainable training aimed at making them better citizens in the future. He noted that with good education, they would have the requisite known-how to compete with others in future.
Obi, the Deputy Director General of the PDP National Campaign Council, said he had to break from the campaign to be with the students because the man he was campaigning for, President Goodluck Jonathan, was also in love with education and had done so much to improve education in the country as part of the Transformation Agenda of his Government.
Obi said the money he had continued to give to schools were donations to him from individuals and corporate organizations, which he derived joy and satisfaction donating to schools because God had already provided him with all his needs in life.
Speaking, the Manager of the school, Rev. Fr. John Martins Chikani said he was overwhelmed by emotions for a former Governor to travel to the remote part of Enugu to assist their school. Presenting him as a good example of Christian witnessing, he assured him of the prayers of the school for him at all times.
