Again, Peter Obi Donates N10 Million To Nursing College To Boost Health Sector

On Monday, the 2023 presidential candidate of the Labour Party, Peter Obi, donated N10 million to Grimard College of Nursing Sciences, Anyigba, Kogi State, for the training of nurses.

This adds to the number of nursing schools where Obi has donated money to boost the health sector.

He said Nigeria remains undeveloped because the nation has not aggressively invested in the critical areas of development such as health, education, and poverty alleviation.

A statement by the Peter Obi Media Reach (POMR) spokesperson, Yunusa Tanko, said Obi had reiterated his unwavering commitment to building a better nation through investments in the critical areas of human and national development—health and education.

I have not only remained consistent in urging governments, at all levels, to invest more in health and education, but I have also continued to call on donor agencies to do the same. Our investment in the future of our children is for the good of society and the progress of our nation, Obi said.

Addressing the nursing students, he added:

“I am particularly concerned about the training of more nurses who play vital roles in caring for the health of society. As experts continue to warn of a severe shortage of nurses, we must remain proactive by investing in their training. Through that, we can have enough for our domestic health sector and export more to the global community.”

Obi thanked the Proprietor of the College, Bishop Anthony Ademu Adaji, the management, and the staff of the college for their commitment to training compassionate and competent healthcare professionals, saying, “Our commitment remains to build a New Nigeria which offers Nigerians access to good healthcare and educational opportunities.”
