The All Progressive Congress (APC) hopeful for Ado, Okpokwu and Ogbadibo Federal Constituency Seat at the Green Chamber come 2023, Hon. Engr. Sunny Oche has commenced the distribution of educational materials to school pupils across the three Local Government Areas of Enone Axis. Hon Sunny said his gesture is to encourage the children of the poor and less privileged in Enone to have access to quality education like their counterparts in the urban areas. He believes that, education remains the major tool for socio-economic development and poverty reduction in Enone Axis.
For him, the future of any community lies in the quality of its education but unfortunately, one of the major problems facing education in Enone is lack of basic educational materials which he is determined to tackle with his foundation. Engr Oche assured parents and pupils in Enone to expect more support in the area of education in the coming months from his foundation. He called on all stakeholders, parents and guardians, society in general, the private sector and non-governmental agencies to get involved in raising the bar for education in Enone.
“The demand for education is so high because education is not only an investment in human capital but it is also a prerequisite for economic development, he added.”
