One of the surest ways of experiencing true happiness is by caring for other people and seeking to touch their lives positively, former Governor of Anambra State, Peter Obi, has advocated.

Obi, Vice Presidential Candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) during the 2019 election, also emphasised education as one of the ways of enriching the lives of other people, especially the less-privileged in the society.

Obi, who spoke on Tuesday to students of St. Mary’s Prestigious College, Awka, Anambra State, therefore encouraged Nigerians to try their best to touch lives and support education in the country..

Describing education as the most unique endeavour, expressed sadness on seeing schools being neglected or not accorded prime of place in the scheme of development, saying leaders must look inwards, reduce cost of governance and plough the extra money into education for the good of the society.

The former governor, who presented computers, printers and a generator to power the gadgets, said: “Education, by pushing back the frontiers of ignorance and barbarism, gives a people the opportunity to go beyond themselves and conquer the world. The rate of poverty among nations is always proportional to their educational attainment.”

Responding to Obi’s gesture, the Catholic Bishop of Awka, Most Rev Paulinus Ezeokafor, said that everybody in the state, “even ants in the bush”, are aware of Obi’s goodness and interest in the progress of the country through his fanaticism towards education. He spoke through his representative and the Diocesan Education Secretary, Fr. Hilary Nwajagu.
