The presidential candidate of the Labour Party in the 2023 general elections, Mr Peter Obi, has donated N10 million to the Grimard College of Nursing Sciences in Anyigba, Kogi State.

The former Anambra State Governor made the donation during a visit to the institution on Monday.

He said Nigeria is undeveloped because the nation has not aggressively invested in the critical areas of development, which he said are health, education, and pulling people out of poverty.

A statement by the spokesperson of the Peter Obi Media Reach (POMR), Yunusa Tanko, said that Obi reiterated his unwavering commitment to building a better nation through investments in the critical areas of human and national development.

“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,” Obi said.

Addressing the nursing students, Obi reminded them that they are in a noble profession which cares for humanity.

He expressed concern about a possible lack of nurses in the country and emphasized the importance of taking proactive steps towards addressing the shortage.

“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.
