DETAILS

The presidential candidate of the Labour Party, (LP), Mr Peter Obi, has responded to the question that he did not build a single new school through out his 8 years tenure as Governor of Anambra State.

Reno promised a reward of Ten thousand US Dollars ($10,000) to anyone that could show a school built by Obi.

And responding to this during a press conference in Abuja on Wednesday, Obi said those who said that failed to avail themselves of his manifesto.

He said that when he came to Anambra State, education was in shambles, schools were closed and the state was number 26 in the country but by the time he left, Anambra was number one in the state.

“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 and that was my manifesto.
