Mario David Dibie, Founder and Administrator of Lumen Christi International Secondary School, Isselu-Uku in Aniocha North Local Government Area of the state. Utuama said the initiative has continued to add value to and enhance the state government’s Three-Point Agenda in various ways.

The Deputy Governor, who said this during the maiden edition of the school’s Inter-House Sports Competition at on Saturday, noted that the school has sown the seed of peace and security which is in tandem with the state’s Three-Point Agenda.

According to him, “I cannot imagine the products of this school becoming elements that will disturb the peace of our community, rather, I see great boys and girls who will contribute in no small way to advance our state and nation's capacity; I see boys and girls who will advance the frontiers of education given their determination, dedication and discipline in the field of sports and other careers.”

Utuama, who was accompanied by the Commissioner for Local Government and Chieftaincy Affairs, Barr. Neworld Safugha, and the Commissioner for Millennium Development Goal, MDG, Queen Victoria Ikechukwu, congratulated the proprietor of the school for his initiative. He noted that the school by its specialty has come to be, through the divine grace of God, adding that the children who are students of the school are specially selected for a purpose God will unfold in due course.

His words: “After witnessing the centenary celebration of our great country, a country of great diversity that has given us strength and beauty, I am inspired that we have here, boys and girls who will make their mark in this new century. I see great leaders of today and tomorrow, great men and women of God, whose prayers will turn Nigeria around for good.”

The Deputy Governor, who was impressed by the colourful march past by the students of Lumen Christi, made a cash donation to each of the six houses that took part in the competition. He said that as far as he is concerned they are all winners due to their brilliant performances.

The school proprietor, Rev. Fr. Dibie, in his address, disclosed that the goal of the school is to train young boys and girls and make them great in the future, not just to be academically sound but to be spiritually and morally protected.

Rev. Fr. Dibie noted that the school, which is just five years old, will be preparing for its first external SSCE examination by next year. He appealed to the government and all well meaning Nigerians to do whatever they can to make the school great.
