ALL THE 400 SECONDARY SCHOOLS MUST GET BUSES AND EQUIPPED THIS YEAR-GOV OBI
Gov. Peter Obi yesterday said that all the secondary schools in Anambra State, more than 400 in all, would all get buses and computers before the end of the year. He also said that computers would be extended to all the primary schools in the State to expose the children early to the use of computers, due to its significance in the world of today. Gov. Obi was speaking yesterday during the visit to Eastern Academy in Onitsha shortly before he left for Abuja for the meeting with the visiting Canadian Minister of International Trade, Hon. Ed Fast as well as for the Meeting of the Committee set up by National Economic Council to look at the problems of education in the country, which he chairs.
Gov. Obi who inspected the school's amenities, including hotsles, refractory and kitchen said that his administration must continue to do everything possible to encourage her people to take education seriously as the only currency for competition in a globalised world. He expressed satisfaction that the State is already reaping the fruits of her investment as could be seen from the increasing better performances of schools in the State in external examinations. “In the last WAEC and NECO exams, a girl from Anambra came first throughout the country in both examination”, he said.
He assured the staff and students of the school, that he would come back within a month to assist them, having seen things for himself. He encouraged them to always look up to responsible men in the State as role models.
In another development, the Governor also inspected bad portions of Iweka road and promised that work will start there very soon as part of the efforts to restore the glory of Onitsha.
Obi once again took the opportunity to appeal to all those trading in shanties to remove them as, according to him, Government is determined to remove them herself.
