The Presidential candidate of the Labour Party LP, Peter Obi, has congratulated students of the Queen of the Rosary College, Onitsha, Anambra State, for their performance in the just concluded World Affairs Challenge which took place in the United States of America, USA.

 

In a post via his verified Twitter handle on Thursday, Obi said the “students have brought honour to the nation through their smart idea which is very beneficial to the environment”.

 

Recall that last month, students from Queen of the Rosary College, Onitsha, clinched second place in the just concluded World Affairs Challenge, an international competition for high school students, aimed at developing and implementing S.M.A.R.T. solutions for the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals.

 

The former Anambra State governor said he celebrates them, their teachers, and millions of youths across the nations who are involved in different productive enterprises.

 

He wrote, “I congratulate the Nigerian students from Queen of the Rosary College, Onitsha, who clinched second place in the just concluded World Affairs Challenge, which is an international competition for high school students, aimed at developing and implementing their own S.M.A.R.T. solutions for the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals.

 

“The Nigerian students reportedly carried out innovation in Queens’ Lyfe bags – a 100 percent plantable biodegradable bag made from rice straws, banana fibers, and corn husks and infused with tomato, pepper and watermelon seeds such that the bags can grow into plants when disposed of. It is for millions of smart youths like these in our country that we remain resolute in building a New Nigeria centred on innovation and productivity, where people’s skills will match their opportunities in life.

 

“The young students have brought honour to the nation through their smart idea which is very beneficial to the environment. I celebrate them, their teachers, and millions of youths across the nations who are involved in different productive enterprises. Together we will build the New Nigeria of our dreams.”
