Earlier today, as Abia School Children interacted with their Governor, Dr Okezie Ikpeazu, I felt some jealousy towards them.
All through my primary and secondary school days I never saw any Governor to WAVE at from a distance not to talk of being in same room and even touching and shaking hands with him.
But this set of Abia students did not only just shake the hand and touch their Governor, they also asked him some very tough questions on teachers salary and equipping of our schools.
Abia School Children are the BEST: Intelligent, Bold and audacious High Performers.
Like the brilliant and loving father he is, Governor Ikpeazu answered all the questions and made a public commitment on ensuring that teachers are up to date with salaries before the end of the year, just like the rest of the state workers in Ministries, Departments and Agencies that make up more than 70% of our workforce are up to date.
Congratulations to Abia School Children of this generation. You are not just the best but also the luckiest ever.
Back to back, for 3 years, you delivered the best WASCE result in Nigeria and your Governor and Government remain very proud of you.
For your sake, impossible will remain nothing to Governor Ikpeazu. He will continue to innovate to solve all the challenges within our educational system and ensure sustained high performance.
Chief John Okiyi Kalu is the Abia State commissioner for Information.
