Anambra was not number one in NECO under Peter Obi because of educational investments – Reno Omokri

A former presidential spokesman, Reno Omokri on Wednesday, April 25, alleged that the real reason Anambra State became number one in NECO exams under Peter Obi’s administration, was the high rate of malpractices.

In his tweet on X, Omokri argued that Anambra did not become number one in NECO exams because Peter Obi invested in education.

“Rather, the state, under Peter Obi, had become notorious as the headquarters for exam fraud in Nigeria. That was why when Peter Obi’s tenure ended in March 2014, his successor, Willie Obiano, closed down 486 exam malpractice centers in July 2014, that had been established and were flourishing under Peter Obi around the state. That was Peter’s legacy in education.

“And that is why Anambra gradually lost its top position in NECO after Obi’s tenure. Because succeeding governors refused to continue along those lines. For example, last year, Adamawa even outperformed Anambra,” he said.

“The secret was not any investment Obi was making in the education sector, because the truth is that Peter Obi was more focused on building beer breweries for Anambra than schools. The secret was the exam magic malpractice centers,” Omokri added.

Obi had said in a press conference to explain why he had not built a single school in his eight years as governor, that it was because it was not in his manifesto.
