Chief David Onuoha Ogba (Bourdex), an APGA chieftain and former 2015 senatorial APGA candidate in Abia North supervises 6 schools in Abia North and promised to do his best in fixing the dilapidated ones.

In a post he titled; “The labor of our heroes past”, – Chief Onuoha stated the real reason why he was moved to rebuild the dilapidated schools in Abiriba, Abia North.

The post titled; “The labor of our heroes past”, reads;

On May 31, 2017 I was in Abuja to receive an award from the National Youth Council of Nigeria. At the reception hosted by the ACIU and the Abiriba Community in Abuja I made a promise after the address and an appeal presented to me by the President of ACIU Abuja branch. 

I had responded by acknowledging the fact that I was conversant with the state of the decaying infrastructures of our dear community and more especially the state of the schools that our children who represent our future attend and I promised that I was already planning to do something about it and would soon take steps to concretize those plans and would at the same time partner with Abuja ACIU to ensure that “the labor of our heroes past shall never be in vain…” If I may borrow words from our Countries national anthem.

In keeping with that promise I visited the 10 schools we have in Abiriba on Wednesday June 6th with members of Bourdex Foundation and a contractor Sacon Builders to see for myself what needs to be done. The schools we visited are as follows: 

1). Biama Community Primary School.
2). Ameke Community Primary School.
3). Central School Abiriba.
4). Orgbu Community School.
5). Enuda Primary School.
6). Amamba/Ukpo Community School.
7). Amanta Community School.
8). Amaogudu Community School.
9). Nmaju Primary School.
10). Agborji Community School.

Needless to say that all our schools are in bad shape and the nature of work to be undertaken would involve the construction and reconstruction of classroom blocks, re-roofing of some existing buildings, provision of toilet facilities as most of the schools do not have toilets, pavement around some of the classrooms, fencing, construction of examination and assembly halls, provision of iron doors and windows, flooring, offices and painting amongst other things.

From what I saw, it is an enormous undertaking which requires the attention of all of us but one that must be done in order to reposition our schools and halt the decay as far as infrastructural provisions are concerned because there is also the issue of helping out with school uniforms, school shoes and sandal, school bags and not forgetting seating desks and as one of the kindergarten teaches reminded me, the provision of play ground “Jan glovers” , as she put it, to enable the children play which in my opinion is also very important for their development. 

The contractors that accompanied us are in the process of evaluating and costing the various aspects of the work and  have promised to get back to me in the next few days after which I shall initiate a meeting between the Foundation, the ACIU and the Enachioken in council, including but not limited to all Abiriba Sons and daughter who may wish to be part of this laudable undertaking, to chart the way forward.
