Former governor of Anambra State, Peter Obi, has explained why he did not construct a single new school during his tenure as governor of Anambra State.

This medium reported that social media influencer Reno Omokri questioned Obi’s government, challenging the Labour Party’s presidential candidate in the last election and his followers to present a single school he constructed in his eight years as governor.

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

Reacting, Obi posited 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 the state was ranked 26th in the nation when he arrived, with shuttered schools and a broken educational system, saying that by the time he left office, Anambra had risen to the top.

“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, which was my manifesto.

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