The presidential candidate of the Labor Party in the 2023 polls, Peter Obi has presented a ₦10 million cheque to the College of Nursing Sciences, St. Charles Borromeo Specialist Hospital, Onitsha, Anambra.

Mr Obi has announced that he will donate funds annually to support institutions and strengthen the health, education, and environment sectors.

He noted that the donation was meant for 2023, but he could not visit the school to present the cheque because of electoral activities and other issues he was attending to.

“We need to start contributing our quota to the development of critical institutions like the college of nursing. I am sure that in time to come, this school will move to greater heights.

“I will continue to offer my annual yearly support. Last year, I did not come because of activities that took my time. All we are doing today is giving back what God has given us,” he said.
