Senate Committee Commends Uduaghan’s Strides In The Educational Sector

Senate Committee on Education led by Senator Uche Chukwumerije says it is astonished by landmark achievement of Delta state Government in Basic and Secondary Education Sector.

Speaking during a courtesy on Governor Emmanuel Uduaghan at Government House Annex, Warri, Senator Chukwumerije said a tour of some model Secondary and Primary School structures showed that a major transformation had been achieved by Uduaghan administration.

Federal Legislator said reports by Universal Basic Education Commission, (UBEC) and State Primary Education Board (SUBEB) hierarchy in the state, indicated that cooperation between the State and the Federal Governments was producing good fruits.

The lawmaker urged sustenance of the synergy as basic education was the foundation of learning.

A delighted Governor Uduaghan said apart from free education at the Primary, Basic and Secondary levels, scholarship awards to first class University and others were being executed to prepare the state for the future.

The Governor, who called for a second look at the payment of Primary School Teachers’ salaries, disclosed that the State subsidizes it monthly, to the tune of about 600 million naira as the Local Governments were incapable of the obligation.

Besides, the Governor announced that the road to the Federal University of Petroleum Resources, Effurun, would be constructed by the State Government.

Former Plataeu State Governor, Chief Joshua Dariye, and Senator Pius Ewherido, representing Delta Central Senatorial District, amongst others were in the Committee, which is on a routine oversight visit to the State.
