The Eze Oha Evo III of Evo kingdom, said that only students who paid prime attention to their studies got to the top of the academic ladder. According to him, education still remained the best form of empowerment and called on the students to always insist on the best in their studies. The Eze Gbakagbaka, pointed out that education sector was the mother of all sectors due to its huge contribution to the development and training of all in the society.
He further warned them that their activities in their differrent campuses must be in consonance with Governor Nyesom Wike’s plans to make the state an academic hub.
The monarch recalled that few years ago, the Rivers State University was ranked the 12th best community university in the world, adding that with the recent attention to education in the state that the university could emerge the best in the globe.
