Peter Obi Donates N1million Each To Anambra First Class Graduates
Gov. Peter Obi of Anambra on Thursday presented N1 million each to 160 first class graduates of the state to enable them to be established in their chosen careers.
Addressing the graduates in Awka on Thursday, Obi said the gesture was a way of encouraging hard work among students and youths in the state.
The governor also used the occasion to distribute 55 school buses to 55 secondary schools, saying it was part of the final push in the education sector.
He further inaugurated the distribution of more than 200 transformers to various communities as well as two fire trucks to the state fire service.
Obi assured that his successor, Mr Willie Obiano, would sustain the gesture and called on the people of the state to support the in-coming administration.
Earlier, the state Commissioner for Education, Dr Uju Okeke, commended the governor for the transformation so far witnessed in the education sector.
She said that Obi’s administration had so far distributed about N2.8 billion to the Catholic mission schools and about N2 billion to Anglican mission schools.
