Gov Okorocha adopts over 750,000 Imo school children

The  governor of Imo State, Owelle Rochas Okorocha, has adopted over 750,000 school children in primary and secondary schools as well as tertiary institutions in the state.

Addressing journalists at the Government House, Owerri, Governor Okorocha explained that the adoption involves taking responsibility of training them to the university level to alleviate the sufferings of parents in assuming such responsibility.

Governor Okorocha, further disclosed that all that is needed by Imo children in schools will be provided including their uniforms, sandals, school desk, books and other learning materials

He expressed happiness that the money parents would have used in paying their children’s school fees could be channeled to other appropriate uses by parents to reduce hardship in various homes.

Governor Okorocha also said that with the training of Imo children, the spirit of patriotism would be revived in the minds of the children, stating that by the time they grow up, they would indeed realize that their state trained them and as such learn how to give the state back what was given to them.

He assured that with the adoption policy, the poorest families in the state would have their children in school. He also stated that more universities like Jesuit Loyola University would be sited in the state and therefore urged parents not to deprive their children from going to school as parents found depriving his or her child from going to school will definitely face the consequences.
