The students of Alor Science and Technical College have told the vice-presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Mr. Peter Obi, that the students and people of Anambra State would never forget him. They cited what he did in Anambra State when he was the governor, especially the revolution he led in the education sector, among the reasons.
According to The Nation, the students spoke through their representative, Master Alaoma Somtochukwu, on Saturday during the pastoral visit of Archbishop Valerian Okeke to the school.
He also advised them not just to dream dreams, but to be pragmatic about it by trying at all times to reduce their dreams to achievable goals through what he called five principles of “planning, projection, practice, perseverance and prayers.
In his words: “Okwute Ndigbo made a landmark decision the previous governments lacked the will to take. He waded into the problems facing schools in the area of provision, renovation, and reconstruction of mindset and motivation of teachers.”
Besides the 35 million Naira Mr Peter Obi gave to them for infrastructural improvement, Mr. Samuel said it was through him that the school constructed a gigantic building housing eight classrooms, the sickbay, the school canteen and library.
