Education Sector Supports: He Peter Obi Truly Has Investment Footprints In Kenya.

On Tuesday, July 12th, 2022, a short post went viral on social media which read, "Obi was said to be the first African to visit Kenya and invest with Naira. That's why the city is named after him as Nairobi. Go and verify." The short message invariably cracked ribs in laughter. But beyond the surface of its humour lies verifiable facts that the Labour Party, LP presidential candidate truly has invested in the East African country, Kenya. It is not an investment that yields him personal profit in return but unequivocally one that impacts lives and building a learned society.

The two-term former governor of Anambra State, famously noted for his unrelenting support to the education sector, had extended the same passionate support to schools in Kenya on the invitation of Build Africa (BA) as Rwanda. It was in February 2017 that he visited Kenya with Lynda Edwards, the Chief Executive Officer of Build Africa, a world-acclaimed non-governmental organization. Based in the United Kingdom, BA is mainly at the forefront of supporting education in many countries.

Recognizing that the man fondly called Okwute is a firm believer that education is the bedrock of development in any society desirous of modern civilization, Lynda was urged to work with HE Peter Obi, and therefore in Kenya, they visited many schools. During the visit to schools, the man who consistently supported education was pleased with two modern classrooms and places of convenience, which Build Africa erected at Kanana Genesis Primary School in Msambweni, Kenya. He then urged them to show presence in his dear country Nigeria for similar support to the poorest part of the country.

The great philanthropist known for donating cash in support of the education sector has been investing in some African countries through Build Africa by means of erecting structures, providing learning infrastructure, and facilitating exchanges among schools. This is a serious fact and by no means any joke. Go and verify in Kenya and Rwanda!

It is no doubt that when he becomes the president of the Federal Republic of Nigeria through our voting powers in the February 25th, 2023 presidential elections, he will, in the company of his highly cerebral vice presidential candidate, Sen. Dr. Yusuf Datti Baba-Ahmed, who is himself a strong believer in education, thoroughly revamp our educational sector and permanently solve the problems that make our teachers and academic lecturers embark on needless strikes in which resultant effect is stagnation on the knowledge development of our young generations.

Yes, the LP presidential candidate has done it before in his dear home state of Anambra as governor while, on the other hand, his VP candidate has also done his part in building Universities where he is a Chancellor. Therefore, it won't be rocket science for both to achieve commendable feats and turnaround in our educational system as president and vice president of our dear country.
