How Peter Obi Gave 24 Million Naira To Families Of Boko Haram Victims In Adamawa

Record shows the presidential candidate of the Labour Party, Peter Obi during his governorship administration in Anambra State in 2012, gave sum of 24 Million Naira to twelve families of Boko Haram victims in Adamawa state.

While speaking during the donation to the affected families on June 19th, 2012, Peter Obi also promised to offer scholarship to about 60  children of the Boko Haram victims after he had given each family two million Naira to cushion the effect of their loss especially as the victims were mainly breadwinners to their families.

“This money is to enable you rebuild your lives and I advise the relations of the beneficiaries to support them to ensure that the money was put to meaningful use,” he told them.

He further urged the community not to see the beneficiaries as having made a fortune but people whose loss can not be equated to any amount of monetary donations. He added that the community members should look after the families of the Boko Haram victims.

Peter Obi’s governorship administration in Anambra State has earned him the admiration of Nigerians across ethnic groups and religious divides. His technocratic solution to Nigeria’s numerous challenges has earned him the most popular presidential candidate for the 2023 presidential election.

Peter Obi remains one of a few public officeholders in Nigeria who has no corruption taint on his reputation after more than a decade and a half of being in the public service.
