Obiano to rebuild classrooms destroyed by storm

Anambra State Governor, Willie Obiano has promised to rebuild the classrooms destroyed by windstorm at the Father Joseph Memorial High School, Aguleri in Anambra East Local Government Area of the state.

No fewer than 100 buildings were reportedly destroyed by the storm in the community, which also wreaked havoc at the Justice Chinwuba Memorial Secondary School in the area.

President of Old Boys Association of Father Joseph Memorial High School, Aguleri, Dr. Emman Ude-Akpeh, expressed shock over the level of destruction of facilities in the school.

He praised the governor for his prompt response in visiting the school to ascertain the level of damage.
He was confident in the synergy of the government and other stakeholders, including the National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA) and the Federal Government to restore normality to the lives of the over 2000 affected pupils.

He said: “For the governor to visit the school with the Commissioners for Works and that of Housing is a clear indication that he is always ready to listen to the yearnings of the people.

“He gave immediate instructions on the spot as to what is to be done. We know that he will do what he said and will wipe away our tears before long.

“On behalf of the entire Old Boys Association, the PTA and the school authorities, we thank him immensely and pray the Almighty God will continue to empower him to continue the great works he has been doing for Ndi Anambra.”

Ude-Akpeh also thanked the Federal Government for sending NEMA alongside SEMA for on-the- spot assessment of level of destruction in the school and other schools and residential buildings affected in the area.

The governor  was received by the Bishop of Onitsha Archdiocese, Most Revd. Denis Isizoh; Principal of the school, Revd. Fr. Anthony Izuchukwu, among others.
