 The administration of Governor Ifeanyi Okowa has restated its unshakable resolve to provide quality education across Delta State Government.   

Chief Press Secretary to the Governor, Mr. Charles Aniagwu, gave the reassurance in a statement issued on Satutday in Asaba, the state capital.

He said: “In the last forty six months, the administration of Governor Ifeanyi Okowa has paid special attention to the improvement of education in Delta state, especially in the upgrade of infrastructure and retraining of teachers and instructors.

“Since the last one week when the story of our dear little Success broke and went viral, we have watched and read divergent views on the subject matter.

“While we appreciate those who have genuinely expressed concern on the issue and assure such persons of our determination to further strengthen our efforts in repositioning our school system in Delta, we make bold to say that we will not be distracted by those who wish to take advantage of the situation to advance their personal gains.

“It is important to restate that Delta State Government runs free education at both primary and secondary school levels in all public schools in the state and therefore any staff of government who engage in acts that undermines the good intentions of government cannot be spared of appropriate sanctions.

“While we acknowledge that we are yet to fix all the schools, it is pertinent to state that the Okowa-led administration since assumption of office has built and reconstructed over 4,000 classroom blocks and provided furniture, learning and instructional materials to public schools in the state with a view to making them conducive and competitive with the private schools.

“The Government has equally trained and retrained teachers in the employ of the State Government with a view to making them adapt to modern teaching techniques hence the establishment of an ultra-modern Teachers Training Institute at Owa-Oyibu Ika North East Local Government Area of Delta State.

“In order to fill vacancies created by retirements in recent times, the State Government has equally directed the Post Primary Education Board (PPEB) to advertise for the recruitment of qualified teachers in critical areas such as the sciences.”
