Reno’s $10000 Challenge: I didn’t build any school in Anambra, Obi opens up

Reno had challenged anyone to show a single school Obi built from scratch during his time as Anambra Governor and win $10,000.

The Labour Party flag-bearer in the 2023 presidential election Peter Obi has responded to whether he built a school from scratch during his two-term tenure as Anambra State Governor.

Famous social media personality and Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) supporter Reno Omokri had challenged Obi and his supporters to name a school project he started, completed, and commissioned as governor.

Posting a video clip from a podcast interview with Seun Okinbaloye on his X handle last weekend, Omokri offered to reward anyone who could counter his claim with $10,000.

The challenge later generated a lot of attention on social media as no one came forward to disprove Omokri’s claim.

Obi confirms Reno’s claim

Reacting to the conversation during a press conference in Abuja on Wednesday, April 24, 2024, the presidential candidate said he needed not to build any school in Anambra, as his manifesto didn’t state that.

Obi recalled that he met Anambra education in shambles with schools closed while the state languished at number 26 in the country.

According to him, by the time he left, the state was already number one in education in the country.

“I improved the quality, physical and mental well-being of the people, schools, had the basic things they needed and the people shone like stars and that was my manifesto.

“Building new schools when the old ones are moribund is just like building coastal lines when internal roads are impassable,” Obi said.
