Imo State Government is partnering with Nigerian Army to establish three Command Schools in the three Senatorial zones of the State.
Prince Madumere who received a delegation from the Nigerian Army led by the Chief of Administration, Nigeria Army, Major General Idris Alkali commended the Nigerian Army for partnering with the State in development of sound minds for the youth of Imo State.
He told his guest how highly Governor of Imo State, Owelle Rochas Okorocha holds education and its unequal importance to national development.
His words; “I am sure you are all aware that our Governor believes in the potency of education to fight poverty, liberate the minds of the people and engender development in all ramifications. It is this passionate appreciation of education that has led to the forfeiture of his security votes to help achieve free education policy at all levels, which has run for about six years now. I therefore commend you for this appreciation of these efforts by proposing to site three Command Schools in the three senatorial zones of Okigwe, Orlu and Owerri”
Prince Madumere assured his guests of Owelle Rochas Okorocha led government full cooperation.
Speaking earlier, the leader of the delegation, Major. Gen. Alkali thanked Imo State Government for their cooperation and avowed interest to ensure that the proposed projects are realized.
He also described Imo as the best prepared State going by what they have seen on ground and promised that Nigerian Army will make the proposed Command schools in Imo model learning centers to breed respectable young Nigerians. He hinted that they are in the State for the final inspection of the centers for the schools.
