…lists schools amongst 22 projects undertaken by former Anambra Gov

“…a Governor did not construct even one, and then you say he is the best Presidential candidate you can offer Nigerians?”-Reno Omokri

By our Reporter

One of the supporters of Mr. Peter Obi has responded to Reno Omokri’s challenge to OBIdients to name one school built by Obi and get $10,000.

Popular social media influencer and Public Affairs Analyst, Mr. Reno Omokri had challenged supporters of the 2023 Presidential candidate of the Labour Party; His Excellency, Mr. Peter Obi to name one school he initiated, built and completed during his tenure as governor and get a reward of Ten Thousand Dollars ($10,000).

Omokri, a self-styled ‘Table Shaker’, who posed the challenge in his social media post, was comparing Peter Obi, a former two-term governor of Anambra state, to a Chairman, Local Council Development Area in Lagos state; Mr. Monsuru Obe who, according to Omokri, had constructed four roads, two schools and other life-touching infrastructure in his local government area.

Omokri said “This is Mr. Monsuru Obe. He is the Chairman of the Ejigbo Local Council Development Area in Lagos. Please fact-check me: His government has constructed four roads, two schools, and is in the process of constructing a third school, and has built and commissioned multiple health centres.

Mr. Obe’s administration has also provided free uniforms to primary school pupils in his LCDA. Please note that Mr. Obe is NOT a Local Government Chairman. He is a Local Council Development Area Chairman, meaning his allocation is smaller than that of a constitutionally recognised Local Government Chairman.

Yet, he has achieved this. Now, my challenge to Peter Obi and his Obidients is this: Name one school that Peter Obi’s government initiated, started, completed and commissioned in the eight years that he was Governor of Anambra, and I will pay you $10,000.

How can a Local Council Development Area Chairman’s government build multiple schools, and a Governor did not construct even one, and then you say he is the best Presidential candidate you can offer Nigerians? Surely, Nigeria deserves better. Don’t you think so? Name and collect the money!”

Responding to the challenge on one of the social media platforms, an ‘Obidient’ who identified self as Tee Mac, while scolding Reno to ‘Feocus on facts’, listed the following as Peter Obi’s achievements as Anambra governor:
