Labour Party Presidential Candidate, Peter Obi, Donates N10 Million For Training Of Nurses

The Presidential Candidate of the Labour Party (LP) in the 2023 election in Nigeria, Peter Obi, has donated the sum of N10 Million to Grimard College of Nursing Sciences, Anyigba, Kogi State, for the training of medical nurses.
Peter Obi, who visited the College yesterday, July 8, described nurses as the centre of primary healthcare delivery in the country.
Peter Obi reminded the nursing students that they are in a noble profession which cares for humanity.
“I am particularly concerned about the training of more nurses who play very 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.”
He said that his commitment to building a better nation through investing in the critical areas of human and national development such as health and education, is for the good of the nation and the future of the society.
According to him, Nigeria is today undeveloped because government has not aggressively invested in the critical areas of development like health, education and pulling people out of poverty.
He said that the nation is, today, facing serious challenges of insecurity and other socio-economic challenges due to lack of investment in these critical areas.
“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.”
Peter Obi appreciated 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.
“Our commitment remains to build a new Nigeria which offers Nigerians access to good healthcare and educational opportunities. It is POssible.”
