Manager of Regina Pacis Model Secondary School, Onitsha, Rev Fr Paschal Okonkwo, has said that the history of the institution will not be complete without former Governor Peter Obi of Anambra State.

Okonkwo spoke on Thursday during the pastoral visit of the Proprietor of the School and the Catholic Archbishop of Onitsha, Most Rev. Dr. Valerian Okeke. 

The occasion also witnessed the celebration in honour of the five girls that represented the school at the 2018 Technovition competition at Silicon Valley, San Francisco, USA.

Okonkwo said that the school would not stop commending the former governor because “Obi would remain part of the success story of schools in Anambra State.”

He recalled that  it was during Obi’s time as governor that schools  were returned to their original owners and how he backed it up with the massive provision of infrastructure such as school buses, Internet connectivity, sporting equipment, computers and generators to the schools, both government and church-owned schools.

Obi was the People Democratic Party (PDP) vice presidential candidate for the presidential election held on February 23.

The cleric assured Obi that Nigerians are following him and that the massive votes he garnered during the presidential election was evidence of the love the people have for him.

Obi thanked the proprietor and the management of the school for their efforts towards proper upbringing of their students.

Assuring that education remains number one in his developmental agenda in or out of government, Obi made monetary donation to them and assured them that he would remain part of their positive endeavours.

The climax of the event was the announcement of different prizes for the students that represented the school at the competition, and their teachers by Archbishop Valerian Okeke, who also announced that the church will offer scholarship to students who make nine As in WAEC examination.
