Labour Party presidential candidate Mr. Peter Obi has donated the sum of N50m to the Awka Anglican Communion, Anambra State.
Obi said the donation was in fulfillment of his commitment to the construction of the Department of Midwifery and Public Health Nursing of the Millennium College of Nursing Sciences of the diocese.
While he gave N10m at the Friday event, he said that through his planned giving, he would be part of the project till fruition. Obi had previously donated N40 million to Faith Specialist Hospital, where the College is domiciled. The contribution aims to enhance the Diocese’s overall initiatives in strengthening its healthcare facilities.
Speaking at the event, which took place in Awka, Obi said his motivation for the gesture stems from his belief that healthcare is one of the critical developmental needs of any society. He encouraged the support of institutions like the Church in their ongoing efforts to develop these vital areas.
