Why I didn’t build any school as Anambra governor – Peter Obi responds to Reno Omokri

2023 Labour Party presidential candidate, Peter Obi, has explained why he did not construct a single new school during his tenure as governor of Anambra state.

Ex presidential aide Reno Omokri had questioned Obi’s administration, challenging the former Anambra state governor and his followers to present a single school he instituted in his eight years as governor.

Reno promised a reward of 10,000 dollars to anyone who could show a school built by Obi.

In his reaction, Obi stated during a press conference on Wednesday, April 24, in Abuja that individuals who made such claims had not taken advantage of his manifesto.

He said that Anambra state was ranked 26th in the nation when he arrived, with shuttered schools and a broken educational system, saying that by the time he departed, Anambra had risen to the top.

He said: “I improved the quality, physical and mental well-being of the people, schools, had the basic things they needed and the people shone like stars and that was my manifesto.

“Building new schools when the old ones are moribund is just like building coastal lines when internal roads are impassable.”
