He also spoke to the parents of the children telling them about the need for the synergy among them with the teachers and himself. He further expressed the importance of their participation is to Imo State government.

He said his Friday visit was not only to ensure the safety of the children during the distribution of the free shoes and stockings but to rob mind with the teachers, the parents and the students to find out what their immediate challenges were.

However, Dr. Obinna Egbuchulam, the Principal of the school assured the Deputy Governor of their resolve to give their best to the children. He also said the their children are well behaved as they have been able to boost their self esteem.
