GOVERNOR Willie Obiano of Anambra state, has promised to rebuild Father Joseph Memorial High School, destroyed by windstorm at Aguleri Community, in Anambra East Local Government Area of the state.
The President of the Old Boys Association of the school, Aguleri, Dr Emman Ude-Akpeh, who disclosed this while speaking to newsmen in Awka, expressed shock over the level of destruction done to structures in the school by a windstorm that struck the area, early last week.
Ude-Akpeh however commended the governor for his prompt response by visiting to ascertain the level of damage done to the school which also serves as holding camps during flood incidents.
He expressed the hope that the state government and other stakeholders including National Emergency Management Agency [NEMA] and the Federal Government would collaborate to restore normalcy to the lives of over 2,000 students whose accommodation blocks were affected by the windstorm.
The president noted that for the governor to visit the school with the commissioners for Works, Engr Marcel Ihejiofor and that of Housing, is a clear indication that he is always ready to listen to the yearnings of Ndi-Anambra.
“We know that like he said, he will wipe away our tears before long. He came with at least two Commissioners – the Commissioner for Works, and the Commissioner for Housing. He gave instructions immediately, on the spot, as to what is to be done. We know he will do what he said. On behalf of the entire Old Boys Association, the Parent Teacher Association (PTA), and the school authorities, we thank him immensely and pray that the God Almighty will continue to empower him to continue the great works he has been doing for the people of the state,” Ude-Akpeh said.
He also thanked the Federal Government for her quick response by sending the National Emergency Management Agency, NEMA alongside SEMA for the assessment of level of destruction to Father Joseph Memorial High School as well as in other schools and residential buildings affected by the storm in Aguleri community.
