A chieftain of the All Progressive Congress in Delta State, Olorogun Jaro Egbo, on Monday, distributed over 100 free school uniforms to pupils of Afiesere Primary School in Ughelli, Ughelli North Local Government Area of the State.
Egbo, a philanthropist and lover of education in continuation of his free distribution of school uniforms to schools in Delta State enjoined the pupils of the school to be studious and ensure they become better citizens in the future.
The Amerode of Ughelli kingdom and the leader of the Hivoltage Movement in Delta APC also charged the pupils to be obedient to their teachers and also shun social vice that could lead them into problems.
The elated pupils most of whom already had their school uniforms torn in different parts commended Egbo and members of his Hivoltage Movement for the gesture, praying God to continue to elevate their benefactor.
One of the pupils who simply gave his name as Jonathan said, “I am very happy for this school uniform because I have been wearing this one I am putting on for three sessions now.
“My parents will be very happy too because they have struggling to provide another for me, but have not been able to do that, so, this will come as a relief to them”.
The school head and some of their teachers were equally very grateful for the kind gesture of Jaro Egbo, who they noted has continued to sustain his passion for education development in Ughelli North Council Area.
Olorogun Jaro Egbo, who is renowned for his penchant for identifying with the downtrodden promised and assured the school authority of his readiness to do more in due time.
In the Hivoltage entourage were Hon Jerry Uloho, Prince Elvis Oharisi, Reuben Igbuku, Hon David Ebrunu, Samuel Evwigho, Prince Lucky Onisigho, Godfrey Esiada, Festus Makolomi, Daniel Ughere, amongst others.
