Gov. Peter Obi yesterday donated three Coaster buses to Anambra State University, Uli; Nnamdi Azikiwe University, Awka; and University of Nigeria, Nsukka. He said the gesture was part of the policy of his Governemnt to support the provision of infrastructure in our various schools of learning in other to serve our people better. He noted that apart from Anambra State University owned by the State, the other two have Anambra as their catchment areas and as such serve the people of Anambra State.
Speaking further, Obi, who lamented the fallen standard of education, appealed to students to take their studies seriously in other to be useful to themselves and to the State. Condemning the prevalence of cultism, he said that anybody intent on being successful in life must avoid such organisations and shun all manner of societal vices.
Obi who is presentlty touring all secondary schools in the State with grant of 20 Million Naira to each of them for their rehabilitation, called on wealthy individuals and corporate organisations to support the efforts of the Government in revamping the education sector.
Speaking on behalf of the recipients of the buses, Prof. Boniface Egboka, the Vice Chancellor of Nnamdi Azikiwe University thanked Obi for the gesture, recalling that he had made such interventions a routine affair. He thanked him for the attention he pays to education and for the resources he is committing into the sector.
