Peter Obi emphasizes the need for investment in health, education sectors

Labour Party (LP) 2023 presidential candidate and former Anambra State governor, Peter Obi, has urged government at all levels and donors to pour more investment into Nigeria’s health and education sectors, emphasizing that they are key to societal and economic growth.

In an X post on Tuesday, July 9, the 62-year-old politician said this at Grimard College of Nursing Sciences, Anyigba, Kogi State.

He also urged nursing students to remain committed to their schooling, expressing his concern about the training of nurses, adding that investment in their training would curb their impending shortage.

“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. I am particularly concerned about the training of nurses because they are at the centre of our primary healthcare delivery.

“As experts continue to warn of a looming 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.

“Our commitment remains to build a New Nigeria which offers Nigerians access to good healthcare and educational opportunities,” he said.
