Soludo’s Transformation Agenda In Education Receives Boost
By Chris Benson
It is not in doubt that the administration of Governor Chukwuma Charles Soludo’s effort in the education sector is gradually yielding results.
His efforts in building trust for government by the populace is increasingly becoming more pronounced, just as philanthropists are gradually keying into his transformation agenda in all sectors.
The latest positive response happened in Ojoto in Idemili South Local Government Area and Okija in Ihiala Council Area where two of their sons, Mr. Chidi Okeke and Chief Calistus Ibe made major interventions in line with Governor Soludo’s developmental trajectory.
Mr. Chidi Okeke built and equipped a Science and Technology hub in his home town, Ojoto, while Chief Calistus Ibe, instituted a forum for talent hunt for discovery and training of children with special gift of the hands and entrepreneurial potentials in Okija.
Governor Soludo had always proposed and projected the Public Community Private Partnership ( PCPP) model in all areas of human endeavour in the state, so much so that it has become a mantra.
The vision is to transform Anambra schools to smart places of learning, in line with the present administration’s effort to enact a digital tribe across the state.
Also, Governor Soludo has been practicing and has continued to preach the “adopt a school” initiative with the Commissioner for Education, Prof Ngozi Chuma-Udeh projecting it and ably supported by the chair persons of ASUBEB and PPSSC, Dr Vera Nwadinobi and Prof Nkechi Ikediugwu respectively. It is expected that more Ndị Anambra will adopt a school, adopt a pupil and so on.
More well-meaning individuals in Anambra and beyond are enjoined to embrace these two initiatives of Governor Soludo’s government- PCPP and “adopt a school” models in the education sector, to help transform and project schools in Anambra to enviable heights.
