The Governor of Ebonyi State Engr David Umahi Wednesday warn that the future of Nigeria children must not be truncated by the Educational policies of the government and school proprietors.
Umahi said if Nigeria can get itself right, Africa will stand and express confidence in the future greatness of Nigeria if only the younger generation could be molded correctly.
Umahi stated this while addressing the pupils and students of Handmaid International Nursery and Primary School, Azuiyiokwu, Abakaliki, Ebonyi State, during their graduation ceremony.
The governor commended the school management for the performance of the pupils during the graduation ceremony.
Governor Umahi who was accompanied to the event by his wife, Rachel, and senior government officials lauded the school authority and teaching staff for quality teaching and learning and called on the Pupils to continue to make their parents and Ebonyi State proud.
“Let me say that I am very delighted to be here with very senior Government Officials, I am indeed very happy that to be here.
“I can tell you that this is a tonic, you begin to wonder whether these children are schooling in London, the accent is something else and I can tell you that their grammar can challenge most of our graduates, some can not match it.
“When you see the performances of these children you see that there is hope for this country which must not be destroyed by anybody.
“If Nigeria can get itself right, Africa will stand and will be standing strong.
“The future of these children must not be truncated by policies or the School teachers, the legacies we will leave are the sacrifices, the selflessness we deploy in the service of God. A lot of us make so many mistakes because we fail to realize the purposes for which we were born.
“To the parents, I commend you highly and congratulate you, we have hope in these children.
“I am very proud of you all, I congratulate and commend you into the hands of God and I pray you to grow to become responsible leaders of this country to right the wrongs of our leaders.”
