By Stella Chinyere Okunna
On January 21, 2024, His Excellency, Mr Peter Obi’s astounding generosity and philanthropy in the Health Sector took him to the College of Nursing Sciences of the Diocesan Hospital at Amichi and the School of Nursing at Iyienu Mission Hospital/Teaching Hospital of the University on the Niger at Ogidi, accompanied by two core members of “Team Peter Obi” (Prof Chinyere Stella Okunna and Prof Patrick Nky Obi).
At each institution, Obi’s arrival and subsequent announcement of his financial support of N10 million immensely gladdened the hearts of the students and the proprietors (Bishop Ephraim Ikeakor of Amichi Diocese, Anglican Communion and Bishop Owen Nwokolo of Diocese on the Niger, Anglican Communion).
It was a sight to behold. The outpouring of love by the students and other stakeholders (exemplified by the ear-splitting ovation, which characterises his appearance everywhere nowadays), eloquent testimony to the feelings of the people for this much-loved and much-appreciated Man of the People.
At each institution too, he commended the great humanitarian work being done by the bishops and pledged his continued support for their efforts.
As always, we pray the good Lord to continue to bless the benefactor and his beneficiaries.
