Make Education A Priority, Delta PDP Scribe Urges Govt

By Onozure Dania The Federal and state governments have been
advised to budget more funds and give priority to
the education sector in order to enhance and
promote industrial growth and development. GOVERNOR Ifeanyi Okowa Delta State Secretary of the Peoples Democratic
Party, PDP, Chief Obi Nzete, stated this during the
8th Convocation ceremony of the Chukwuemeka
Odumegwu Ojujwu University, Uli, Anambra
State, where he bagged a Masters degree in
Political Science. He said education is key to any form of
development in the society, stressing that all
innovations and inventions in the world are
education based, hence the need for government
and parents to prioritize education. Chief Nzete advised that attention should be given
to the sciences, noting that Arts, Social Sciences
among others were equally important as no
knowledge gained is useless. The state PDP Secretary decried a situation where
youths preferred to pursue short routes to make
money by all means without paying attention to
education which in the long run benefit their lives. Commending Governor Ifeanyi Okowa of Delta
State, for his efforts in developing the education
sector through articulated policies and
programmes, Chief Nzete noted that the governor
was giving attention to vocational and technical
education.
