The Urhobo World United Union (UWUU), Warri zone has donated writing materials to pupils of five selected public primary schools within Urhobo land in Delta state as part of its social responsibility.
As part of its social responsibility and Mission’s Statement, UWUU Warri Zone under the leadership of Mr. Anthony Okpako led members to five Government-owned Primary Schools in the State as they distributed Writing materials to pupils of the Schools.
Addressing teachers and pupils of the schools, the Zonal Coordinator of UWUU Mr. Anthony Okpako who led its members to the schools, advised them on the need to be attentive in learning and do more to excel in all areas of education, adding that teachers should be tolerant in dealing with the Children.
He said, “We are grateful to be here to carry out one of our mission, that is to add value to the society in the area of education.
“It’s the Union’s little way of contributing to the educational background of these children, this is the only message to all schools we are visiting, take your education seriously and run away from anything that can hinder you from completing school.
“I want to let you all know that the journey to the future is in this your early age, I will also plead with our teachers to be patient and tolerant with the pupils, this I am sure can encourage them to learn.
Mr. Okpako who is also a wood merchant called on all well-meaning Urhobo sons and daughters to come home and develop it, particularly the Primary Schools.
“I call on all Urhobo politicians, Business owners to develop our schools across Urhobo land, we can no longer depend on government to help in this regard.
Schools visited includes, Esedo Primary School 1 and 2, Effurun, Uvwie LGA, Onuame Primary School, Ovu – Inland Ethiope East LGA and Eregbe Primary School, Okuredafe Ethiope East LGA, Igun Primary School, Ethiope East LGA and Orhue Primary School, Orereope, Okpe LGA.
The distribution of the writing Materials was supervised by the National Coordinator of Urhobo World United Union, Gladys Mume.
The Head Teachers of the schools in their separate remarks appreciated the Union for the laudable project and for finding their schools’ worthy to be beneficiaries.
