Education: ‘Nigerians Must Complement Efforts of Government’

By Omon-Julius Onabu
In apparent response to lamentations by the alumni association during the school’s golden jubilee in February, Federal Government College Warri set of 1988 at the weekend donated a brand new 18-seater bus to the school as part of its contribution to development of the school.
Chairman of Parents Teacher Association (PTA) of Federal Government College, Warri, Dr. Mike Oberabor, urged more Nigerians to complement the efforts of the government to save the country’s education sector from further decay and boost excellence among students.
Specifically, he called on individuals and groups to support infrastructural development efforts in schools and colleges across the country.
According to Dr Oberabor, “We want more class sets to donate materials and cash to the school. Things have changed, the government is unable to take care of all the responsibilities in this school. It behoves on us as individuals and as old students, parents, to contribute to what the government has to offer, in order to make this place conducive and produced students that can compare favourably with their counterparts all over the world.”
He said that it would be the second time a class set was making such substantial donation to the school in Warri.
