Delta monarch tasks parents on children’s education
By Victor Ahiuma-Young
TRADITIONAL ruler of Ugboba Kingdom in Aniocha North Local Government Area, Delta State, His Royal Majesty, Obi Ezedimbu Nkebakwu III, has called on parents and guardians in the state to place high premium on the education of their children and wards.
Obi Nkebakwu spoke at a send-forth in honour of the immediate past head teacher of Ojeokpa Primary School in UgbobaCommunity, Mrs. Phidelia Oseafiana, at the school premises.
He noted that the call became imperative as education was a global tool needed to enhance the sustainable socio-economic development of any society, adding that education was a worthy legacy that parents and guardians should bequeath to their children and wards.
According to him,”No nation can afford to toy with the educational growth and development of its citizens especially if it wants to join the league of developed economies in the world.”
He enjoined his subjects, particularly parents and guardians, to prioritise the intellectual growth and development of their children and wards by sending them to school as well as monitoring their academic growth.
Obi Nkebakwu who applauded the out-gone head teacher of the school, Mrs. Oseafiana, for her passionate commitment to the academic growth and development of pupils of the school, wished her happy retirement life, as he urged her successor, Miss Doris Uche Anene, to consolidate on the achievements of her predecessor in order to take the school to a higher pedestal of academic glory.
Meanwhile, the monarch who decried the poor state of facilities in the school, appealed to the state government to assist the people of Ugboba in addressing the myriads of challenges facing Ojeokpa Primary School which, he said, was the only primary school in the community.
