The traditional ruler of Ikenga, a town in Anambra State, Igwe Ezeobi Onwuneme, has described the governorship of Mr. Peter Obi as a divine intervention in the life of Anambra State. He made this remarks yesterday when the Governor visited St. Anthony's Secondary School in the town. He said that if not for Peter Obi, who visited places other governors would probably see as not fit for them to visit, that the people of Ikenga might not have seen a Governor. He thanked him for all he is doing in Anambra State, which, according to him, Ikenga town had benefited from. “Much as we appeal to him to construct the Ikenga road, we thank him for giving our town money for security and road palliatives, as well as the building of primary school in our town, among others.”

In his own remarks, Gov. Obi who donated a brand new 18-seater bus to ST. Anthony's Secondary School, the only one in the community as well as 10 computer sets with the promise to give them money for the rehabilitation of their laboratories and building of a library, said that what gave him greatest joy was being in the midst of the youth and encouraging them to pursue education as the most important currency for tomorrow's completion.

The Catholic Bishop of Awka, Bishop Paulinus Ezeokafor thanked the Governor, saying that he was a good example of how Christians should behave in politics. He prayed to God for a good successor that if not better than the Governor, would at least be as good as he is.

In a similar development, the Governor paid an unscheduled visit to Girls High School Agulu, where he was conducted round the School by the Senior Prefect. The Governor inspected rehabilitated buildings, as well as those yet to be rehabilitated. He expressed joy that the partnership with the Church is yielding fruits in the area of education and health. He said that his Government was looking for more ways to deepen the partnership with the Church for the ultimate good of the State.
