The former Governor of Anambra State, Mr. Peter Obi, has donated 12 laptops with printers and a generator to St. Patrick’s International Secondary School, Awka, Anambra State.
Presenting the facilities to the Senior Prefect of the school, Miss Nwamba Childera, on Thurday 23rd January, 2020, Obi called on Nigerians and all men of goodwill to assist schools in the state in any capacity.
“Contributing to the training of children in school is another means of contributing to nation-building,” he said.
Obi admonished the students to take their training seriously while reminding them that education is the only weapon capable of transforming nations and taking people to the heights they never imagined.
The Proprietor of the school, Bishop Paulinus Ezeokokafor, who was representated by Fr. Hilary Nwajagu, thanked Obi for allowing God to use him to be part of the success stories of many schools in the state
Nwajagu recalled how Obi as the governor of Anambra State directed the return of the school to the missionaries, describing the action as ‘profoundest’ since the creation of the state.
Earlier, the Manager of the school, Fr. Celestine Aniekwe, told the pupils to consider themselves privileged for having the donor in their midst.
He urged them to listen intently to him for words of wisdom capable of reshaping their lives for good.
