Holy Child Secondary School, Isuofia, Anambra State has named their magnificent classroom block after the former Governor of Anambra State, Mr. Peter Obi as part of their 20th year anniversary celebration.

Speaking during the event, the Manager of the School, Rev. Fr. Julian Anaetoh, said the gesture was in recognition of Obi’s monumental achievements in all sectors of development, especially in the area of education.

Describing Obi as a “living legend”, Fr. Anaetoh said he had shown other politicians that once one does well in office, his popularity would not wane even after leaving office. His words: “Obi re-defined good governance in Nigeria with his uncommon simplicity of life, shrewd and frugal management of resources as well as stupendous sense of accountability; the man whose gallantry reversed the inglorious decision taken by the Government after the civil war that robbed us of our schools, returned the affected schools, heavily funded the refurbishment of all of them and instituted a functional partnership between the Anambra State Government and the Church.”

Recalling some of the things Obi did that made Anambra Schools to come first in external examinations,  Fr. Julian said he gave buses, computers, generators, libraries, sick bays and Internet connectivity to schools in the state as well as offered them massive and unprecedented support never equaled by any governor in Nigeria.

Mr. Peter Obi, who donated 1 million Naira to the school for continued improvement of infrastructure, called on wealthy people from Anambra State to reduce their epicurean consumption habits that is even injurious to the body and channel their resources to the development of education and other edifying acts.
