The Manager of St. Kizito Secondary School, Umudioka, Rev. Fr. Nonso Okoye, has described the former Governor of Anambra State, Mr. Peter Obi, as the best governor since Anambra State was created.
Nonso was speaking at the weekend when Obi visited the school, being one of the schools he returned to the Church in 2010.
The cleric said: “Mr. Peter Obi has remained my best governor since the inception of Anambra State. When he was the governor, he touched every nook and cranny of the state. In Health sector, he did wonders in the state. In road construction, he made Anambra to be a state with the best network of roads in the state. He remains the only governor in Anambra State that did not leave debts and arrears of salaries at the time he handed over.
“In education, he was exceptional, which all of us, including our school can testify to. Obi has remained an icon, an institution.
“The way he treats people manifestly shows him as a good man.”
Responding, Obi thanked the cleric, staff and students of the school for the massive infrastructural development of the school. However, he reminded them that they must strive to match the improvement with good performances and being many notches ahead of others in values, manners and morals so that when they graduate from the school, they would be intellectually and morally fit to conquer the world.
The highlight of the visit was the presentation of the cheque of N1 million to the school for continued infrastructural development.
On behalf of the students, the Senior prefect of the school, Miss Onochie Perpetua, said that the visit would remain green in the memories of students, while thanking Obi for remaining a noble role model in Nigeria and assured him that students would always abide by his fatherly advice at all times.
