Gov. Peter Obi of Anambra on Thursday presented N1
million each to 160 first class graduates of the state to enable
them to be established in their chosen careers.
Addressing the graduates in Awka on Thursday, Obi said
the gesture was a way of encouraging hard work among
students and youths in the state.
The governor also used the occasion to distribute 55 school
buses to 55 secondary schools, saying it was part of the final
push in the education sector.
He further inaugurated the distribution of more than 200
transformers to various communities as well as two fire
trucks to the state fire service.
Obi assured that his successor, Mr Willie Obiano, would
sustain the gesture and called on the people of the state to
support the in-coming administration.

far witnessed in the education sector.
