Pastor Umo Eno Restates Commitment to Quality Education, Skill Acquisition on Children’s Day


Akwa Ibom State Governor, Pastor Umo Eno, has restated his administration’s resolve to upgrade the quality of education by providing a conducive learning environment for the teachers and students in the state.

Governor Eno, who made the commitment while addressing critical stakeholders in the education sector, joined teachers and students in celebrating this year’s Children’s Day at the Uyo Township Stadium, Uyo.

The Governor acknowledged that the theme “Enhancing the Total Well-Being of the Nigerian Child through Quality Education and Skills Development,” was apt as it mirrors his ARISE Agenda’s vision of building model schools across the State.

He called on parents and guardians to guide their wards from anti-social behavior and other vices that will hinder their growth and development while reminding the children of their pride in place in his administration.

The Commissioner for Women Affairs and Social Welfare, Dr Ini Adiakpan appreciated the Governor for the free and compulsory education in the State, the engagement of quality teachers, the commissioning of Christ the King Model Primary School at Wellington Bassey Way and Government Model Primary School, Ewet Offot and the promise to build model schools across the State.

She noted that Akwa Ibom children should look forward to enjoying brighter days as the government continues to unfold more programmes and projects.
