Anambra is continuing with Peter Obi’s legacy in education — Soludo


By Kamsi Anayo

Anambra state government has commended the former state governor and Presidential Candidate of the Labour Party, Mr Peter Obi for the significant educational contributions during his administration. 

The government observed that the remarkable achievements have continued to serve as a foundation for ongoing educational development in the state.

Gov. Chukwuma Soludo, represented by his Deputy, Dr. Onyekachukwu Ibezim, expressed the sentiments at the funeral mass for Chief Alexander Ejesieme, Snr., held at St. John’s Catholic Church, Agulu, Anaocha Local Government of the state.

He listed the enduring value of the educational reforms initiated by Obi in the state and emphasized the importance of further advancing educational development. 

Ibezim revealed that Soludo recently allocated substantial funds to support mission schools in the state.

“I thank Mr Peter Obi for his numerous legacies in the education sector, upon which we are building. 

“Gov. Soludo recently allocated N1.5 billion to missionary schools in the state as part of his administration’s efforts to sustain the quality of education in the state,” Ibezim said.

It would be recalled that as a part of his efforts to transform education in the state, Mr Peter Obi, in 2011, returned all mission schools to their original owners, the church, while guaranteeing adequate funding from the state government. 

Moreover, Obi bolstered these schools, both public and mission ones, with computers, libraries, Internet connectivities, generators, and laboratory equipment. 

He also made sure that each secondary school in the state received school buses and other essential academic resources.
