The State Government has given approval for the renovation of 45 secondary schools in various parts of the state.

This information was given in Asaba by the State commissioner for Basic and Secondary Education, Professor Patrick Muoboghare when the headmistress and staff of the staff school Delta State University Abraka, visited him to felicitate with him on his appointment.

Professor Muoboghare stated that the 45 schools formed the first phase of the State Government resolve to face lift all public schools in the state.

He said that due to the contending demands from the various sectors of the economy, construction and renovation of infrastructures in the schools would be taken in phases and therefore appealed to schools that did not benefit from this phase to be patient as they would receive attention later.

The Commissioner commended the headmistress and staff for their dedication to duty and sued for its sustenance saying it was necessary for the production of qualified and competent students.

Professor Muoboghare stated that in spite of the fact that the school was the university property, the teachers would benefit from the re-training workshop being organized by the ministry.

He assured them that he would continue to identify with the school and admonished them to always seek for the true position of issues in order to avoid misrepresentation.

Earlier in a speech, the Headmistress of the School, Mrs. Rachael Ugbenu implored the commissioner not to deviate from those principles that endeared him to the people and wished him a successful tenure in office.

She used the occasion to appeal to him to prevail on the State Government to come to the aid of the school in the areas of perimeter fencing and checking of flooding.
