Speaker of the Abia state House of Assembly, Chief Ude Oko Chukwu has lauded Gov. Theodore Orji for his giant strides in the education sector as well as other key sectors of the state’s economy.
The Speaker gave the commendation in Umuahia during the distribution of educational equipment and instructional materials to selected secondary schools in the 17 local councils of the state by Gov. Orji.
Oko Chukwu noted that the educational sector is such a vital sector that no serious minded government with the interest and future of her children at heart would ignore.
He enjoined Abia students to be serious with their studies and shun cultism and indiscipline as future leaders of the state and nation at large.
The Speaker called on the authorities and students of the benefiting schools to ensure that the materials given to them are adequately protected and utilized and called on schools yet to benefit from the gesture to be patient for their turn.
The materials distributed include laptops, computers, television sets, textbooks, among others.
