Mr Peter Obi, the presidential candidate of the Labour Party in the last general elections has paid a visit to his alma mater, Christ the King College in Onitsha.

He visited the school to celebrate its 90th Founders Day.

The former Anambra State governor shared this in a post on his X handle on Sunday, November 26, stating that the college has stood as a beacon of discipline, knowledge, moral integrity, and an unwavering commitment to excellence.

Obi's tweet read, Today, I was glad to join the College Community of my alma mater, Christ the King College (CKC) Onitsha, to celebrate the momentous occasion of the 90th Founders Day anniversary of the institution.

"The College has, since its inception, produced the first two Nigerian Cardinals of the Catholic Church, several bishops, both catholic and Anglican, four supreme court justices and other judges; three governors; many respected senior advocates of Nigeria and legal luminaries; respected academicians, captains of industries and many men of high value in society.

"I wish to express my profound gratitude to the founding fathers, the pioneer teachers, the previous and current School Management, and all those who have dedicated themselves to the noble cause of education at Christ The King College over the years.

"Their tireless efforts have set the College on a path of continuous growth, academic distinction, and moral uprightness.

"I leveraged the opportunity of this great event to encourage the students, teachers, and management of the College to persist in their pursuit of academic excellence and moral development.

"And to all Nigerians, I encourage us to continue to prioritize investment in education which remains a critical contributor to national development and will help us to build the New Nigeria of our dreams. Ours is a land of Possibility".
