Protect Projects in your Domain, RSG Tasks Communities

The Rivers state Commissioner for Education, Professor Kaniye Ebeku, has asked communities to safeguard government projects executed and ongoing in their domain.
Speaking shortly after an assessment of ongoing schools construction works in  Ahoada-East and Abua/Odua local government areas on Friday 24th July 2020, Professor Ebeku also expressed concern on the level of theft in the school.

He condemned the  wanton act of vandalism on school facilities of Western Ahoada County High School, Ahoada, Ahoada East local government area.

He said: "in the course of our review, we found out that in some cases, school facilities, installed facilities, have been burgled and in some cases damaged by hoodlums. This is very unfortunate and condemnable."   

Professor Ebeku explained that the durability of government facilities is reliant on its protection from hoodlums by community members.

"Communities where government projects are sited must see the projects as their own.They must strive to protect the projects. I will sincerely urge communities where government projects are ongoing to partner with government and the contractors to see that these projects are protected."
