Delta advises alumni associations, others on reading culture

The Delta State Government on Thursday called on old students associations, corporate bodies and well-meaning individuals to assist the state government in its efforts to revive reading culture among pupils.

Making the call during the donation of textbooks and Shelves to Emonu Comprehensive High School, Orogun, Ughelli North Local Government Area, the Commissioner for Basic and Secondary Education, Mr Patrick Ukah reiterated the determination of the State government to providing quality education for the children.

The commissioner, who was represented by the Chief Inspector of Education in Ughelli North, Dr. John Ojogho, said the government had so much to do that it might not be able to fund education alone.

Education items worth over N1 million were donated on the occasion by the Emonu Indigenes Worldwide in collaboration with the African Centre for  Leadership and Strategic Development.

The donation, according to the commissioner, would help to revive the dying reading culture among pupils.
