Peter Obi laments lack of investment in Nigeria's future

Peter Obi, the 2023 Presidential candidate of the Labour Party (LP), expressed his disappointment that the Nigerian government is not investing in the future of young people. During a visit to the Holy Rosary School of Nursing in Emekuku, Owerri North Council Area of Imo State, he discussed the institution’s plans to convert into a university and highlighted the importance of removing unnecessary costs to provide free education.

Obi criticized politicians for not meeting expectations, including himself. He was particularly troubled by the fact that the school’s director had to borrow money to maintain the facilities. Obi pledged to return in September with his funds to support the school, emphasizing the need for politicians to do more to address these issues.

Addressing the issue of hunger in Nigeria, Obi called for leaders to make more sacrifices and take necessary actions to secure the future of children. He stressed that the current direction of the country’s educational system is regressive and urged for increased investment and care for the youth.

The Catholic Archbishop of Owerri Diocese, His Lordship Lucious Ugorji, commended Obi’s contributions to various educational institutions and communities, including the construction of boreholes in the North. He presented Obi as a role model for young people and the political class, praising his character, capacity, and competence. Ugorji also invoked God’s blessings for Obi’s intentions for the country.
