The Abia state Governor, Dr. Okezie Ikpeazu has reiterated his commitment to serve Abia parents and children the needed quality education to shape their future.
The governor to this end has therefore vowed that no school operating in residential buildings, Warehouses, Church halls, Village/Town halls and other make-shift places will be allowed to continue in business.
In a release signed by the Commissioner for Education, Dr Kanelechi CK Nwangwa the state government has extended the reopening of Public and Private Nursery, Primary and Secondary Schools for the Second term to Monday January 13, 2020 to enable parents enroll their children in approved schools.
“As part of efforts to make sure that we serve Abia parents and the Abia Child better, and to make sure that the full implementation of the closure of Schools run in residential buildings, Warehouses, Church halls, Village/Town halls and other make-shift places becomes easier, the Ministry of Education have decided to extend the reopening of Public and Private Nursery, Primary and Secondary Schools for the Second term to Monday January 13, 2020.
“This is to enable parents to have more time to move their children from these CLOSED SCHOOLS to the Approved Private and Public Schools (Schools in their own School Compounds) of their choice. In addition, the Ministry is appealing to these Approved Schools to receive the new intakes and allow them to use their old School Uniforms for sometime before changing into the new one. Private Schools are urged to allow parents arrange payment plans, when needed, to make sure that the process does not affect any Child’s education” he said.
The Ministry of Education therefore appeals to everyone to help the Government to give the Abia Child the right education in the right environment.
