During a recent event organised by the Nigerian Book Foundation to honour the late novelist and former traditional leader of Ndikelionwu, His Majesty Prof. Chukwuemeka Ike, the Labour Party presidential candidate, Peter Obi, advised Nigerian students to take their education more seriously.

According to Obi, good education combined with the right attitude and behaviour will open many doors of opportunity for students in life.

Obi went on to explain that education remains the best inheritance he received from his parents, and narrated his own journey in life, recalling how he met and was inspired by great champions of education like the Late Igbo leader, Dim Chukwuemeka Odumegwu Ojukwu, former President Yakubu Gowon, and Nigerian Cardinal of the Catholic Church, Francis Cardinal Arinze, during his time as a young student.

He noted that receiving a good education was what enabled him to climb up the ladder of success and become who he is today.

The co-President of the Nigerian Book Foundation, Prof. Stella Okunna, welcomed and appreciated Obi for addressing the students, describing him as a great lover of education. Okunna recalled how under Obi’s administration, Anambra State moved from 26th to the first position in WAEC and NECO, and revealed that it was Obi who instituted the Nigerian Book Foundation to help young students.

She also noted that it was Obi who built the Kenneth Dike State Library where the event was held.

The traditional ruler of the Obosi community and co-host of the event, His Majesty Igwe Chidubem Iweka III, explained that Obi’s presence at the event was a testament to the love he has for education.
