Indigenes of Odovie community in Ughelle North Local Government Area of Delta State have called on the Delta State Governor, Senator (Dr) Ifeanyi Okowa to come to their aid and save the only primary school in their community from collapsing. The President General of the Community, Mr Francis Ako, said that the condition of the school is so bad that no pupil will like to go to the school, especially these raining season.
“For some time now all the roofs have been linking and if care is not taken, the building will collapse on the children. “I have written several letters to DESOPADEC and the Primary School Education Board but all to no avail. None of them has responded so far,” Ako said. Also, the youth leader of the community, Mr Sam Panama, lamented that the Odovie Primary School which was built about forty years ago has never been renovated. He said if nothing urgent is done to renovate the school, their children will suffer untold hardship when schools finally resume.
According to Panama, “this primary school happens to be one of the best model foundation school in the State. “But here we are today, it has lost its potential background. This primary school is over 40 years now, and it has never been renovated for once since it was built.”
“I want to call on all well-meaning individuals in the community and all Deltans to come to our rescue so that we can have a better future just like our peers in other parts of the state.” As at the time of filing this report all efforts to reach the State Commissioner for Basic and Secondary Education, Patrick Ukah, for comment, failed, as he did not respond to calls and text messages put across to him.
