Peter Obi, the Labour Party (LP) candidate for president in the 2023 general election, has given an explanation for his decision to forgo building new schools while serving as governor of Anambra State.

Reno Omokri, a social media influencer and former presidential assistant, had challenged the supporters of the former governor of Anambra state to show them a single school he had constructed during his eight years in office.
