Not even campaign will stop my school visits – Obi

By Valentine Amanze

The Vice Presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Mr. Peter Obi, has said that not even electioneering in preparation for the February election would stop him from his routine visit to schools.
Obi gave the assurance during his visit to St. Patrick's Secondary School, Ugwuagba, Obosi in Anambra State.
Obi, who advised students to remain focused in their academic pursuits, pointed out that education remained the most essential currency for competition in the world.
After interacting with the students, Obi assured them that the Atiku Abubakar-led government would prioritise education.
His words: "Atiku is education-friendly. I have had many sessions with him on how we would tackle the problem of education to get it right. He is saddened by the continual strike by lecturers of higher institution and he is determined that under him such would not, as now, become a national pastime.
“Of course, he has asked me those things we did to improve education in Anambra State and he is ready to apply them nationally.”
On behalf of the students, the Senior Prefect, Master Onyekachukwu Obasi, thanked Obi for his wonderful stewardship in Anambra State. He said that it was under him that their school got brand new buses, computers, generators, internet connectivity, among other necessary infrsstructure.

The high point of the visit was the donation of N2 million to the school for continued infrastructural improvement.
