From Val Obienyem
The former Governor of Anambra State, Mr. Peter Obi has called on wealthy citizens of Anambra state to support worthy causes that will elevate humanity. He said this at the presentation of the cheque of N2m to Holy Name Secondary School, Umuchu.
Mr. Obi, who earlier presented a cheque of N5m to the School, said it gave him special happiness to assist in building a better society through support to education, which he said was the most portent tool for competition in the world.
Describing children as the future of the society, he said that the only way to make that future meaningful was by investing in what will help to nurture that future such as education.
On how he has been able to raise the money to support different schools and micro credit schemes through the Churches, he said it was through appeal to organizations and individuals of goodwill.
When asked to comment on the reaction that followed his joining of the PDP, Obi replied wryly: “God gave us eyes in front to look forward and not backwards.”
