The National President, Naval Officer Wives Association (NOWA) Mrs. Dupe Ibrahim has enjoined parents to take the education of their children seriously as education is the best legacy they could bequeath to their children.

According to her, education is also the key to the success and growth of a nation. Mrs. Ibrahim gave the advice when she recently toured the Naval base, Warri to assess the activities of NOWA in Delta State.

Mrs. Ibrahim who is the wife of the Chief of Naval staff applauded the effort of the association and described it as one of the progressive branches in the country.

Accompanied by top members of the association from Abuja, the NOWA president praised Mrs. Ayo Babalola, wife of the commanding officer, NNS Delta, Commodore Henry Babalola and her team for doing excellent work at the base. At the Naval school, located along the NPA express, in Effurun, near Warri Mrs. Ibrahim expressed her satisfaction at what she saw and enjoined the handlers not to relent in their effort at ensuring the best for the school.

'I am very pleased with the conduct of the handlers, especially the teachers and pupils and pray that God should continue to guide them in order to excel,' Mrs. Ibrahim said.

The NOWA president however admonished members to continue to be good wives and mothers to their husbands and to see that their children are well cared for, adding that the children should be brought up in the fear of the Lord.

Daily Sun gathered that admission into the school is not restricted to children of the Navy ratings alone but any parents who want their wards admitted into the school are also given the opportunity. Investigation further revealed that the school is one of the best in the vicinity hence a lot of parents want their children to learn there.

One of the students in the school who does not want his name in print told Daily Sun that his parents decided to bring three of them to the school because of the high standard of discipline and training existing in the school and commended NOWA for establishing such school in the area.
