Ex-pupil donates N5m house to alma mater
Anambra State Governor Peter Obi has unveiled a six-classroom brick house worth over N5 million built by Mr John Nwosu for his alma mater, Odida Central School Nnewichi, Nnewi.
Obi, represented by the Education Commissioner, Dr Uju Okeke, praised Nwosu, Chairman of Jet link and Governorship Aspirant under the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA), for his gesture urging others to emulate him.
Nwosu, who announced a scholarship for Chioma Okolocha, a primary six pupil for her brilliant performance in debates and other brain tasking activities, said his gesture was devoid of politics, but inspired by the desire to contribute to the development of his former school.
?My intention is to give the pupils the best to learn under conducive environment. But I want to use this opportunity to advise contractors and builders to be sincere in dealing with the public and by being selfless in doing projects they are paid for in the society as shoddy jobs don?t pay anybody any good,? he said.
He praised Obi for returning schools to the mission.
HeadTeacher of the school, Lady Pauline Obi, also praised the donor. But the listed areas of need of the school, including new buildings to replace an existing structure which, she said, has become a death trap, classroom and teachers? furniture, computers as well as repairs of the damaged boreholes and an overhead tank.
