The Proprietor of Victory Comprehensive College, Elelenwo, Dr Peter Harrison has called on the Rivers State Government and other agencies to reconstruct the delapidated road along Okworo Road in Port Harcourt.
Dr Harrison, who spoke with campus Insight last week, said if urgent attention was not taken, the bad state of the road may prevent students from attending classes.
He noted that before now, residents have made some efforts to reach concerned authorities but regretted that their prayers were yet to be answered.
According to him, concerned agencies should compliment the Rivers State government’s efforts in her bid to bring a positive turn around to the educational sector by visiting schools in the state to ascertain their plights.
The Victory Comprehensive College Boss, who doubles as the chairman of National Association of Proprietors of Private Schools (WAPPS) in the state, noted that concerned authorities ought to move round to find out the true position of schools in the state.
He maintained that the welfare of the students both in public and private schools should top the agenda of the concerned authorities in order to boost the image of the schools.
About the on-going WAEC examinations across the country, he pointed out that the outcome will be high due to the monitoring scheme initiated by the Rivers State Ministry of Education.
He regretted that the monitoring scheme was not introduced earlier but expressed hope that the exercise will transfuse new blood into the state’s educational system.
The NAPPS boss, explained that students have now developed the habit of reading, adding that they have shunned the practice of machinery.
However, he has appealed to the ministry of education to allow those whose private schools were yet to be registered more time before carrying out its action on them.
