Anambra State Governor Peter Obi yesterday distributed 100 vehicles to secondary schools.

He said it was in fulfilment of his promise to spend N40 billion on “the final push” towards accelerating the achievement of the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs).

Speaking yesterday at the Ekwueme Square in Awka, the state capital, Obi said his administration bought 25,000 computers, containing the school syllabus and books, for schools.

He said all secondary schools would get money to set up sick bays and connect to the Internet and would be given electricity generating sets. Obi said the administration’s investment in education was yielding fruit, as manifested in the performance of pupils in external examinations.

The governor thanked churches for partnering the government to improve schools.

Commissioner for Education Uju Okeke said the governor had made teaching and learning easier by providing a conducive teaching and learning environment and necessary logistics.
