Obi: Why I Am Assisting Universities


Weeks after Gov. Peter Obi changed the name of Anambra State University to Chukwuemeka Odumegwu-Ojukwu University and gave it N5billion  for infrastructural development, he explained, yesterday, at St Paul’s University and Madonna University at Awka and Okija respectively, that the intervention was necessary.

Obi presented cheques of one hundred million each to St Paul’s University and Madonna University as well as buses.

He inspected equipment and facilities at the universities’ premises, saying the support to the institutions, which will get to others, was in line with the comprehensive education programme of his administration geared towards turning around all schools and institutions, irrespective of ownership for functional and qualitative knowledge.

The governor charged the students to aspire to be good and worthy ambassadors by working hard to equip themselves properly to attain full potentials in life, assuring that the state government would continue to assist the universities to tackle their various challenges. [Vanguard]
