A cleric, Prophet Dr. Ambrose Vhovhen has donated a borehole for supply of portable water to pupils and staff of Baba – Ido Primary School, Okwagbe in Ughelli South LGA.
Prophet Vhovhen made the donation in response to an address presented by the Head-teacher of the school, Comrade Patrick Akporode during the occasion of the 2015 inter-house athletic competition held at the school sports ground recently.
The Head-teacher had informed that apart from sporting facilities and equipment such as football, volleyball, table tennis, basket ball, batons, trunks and jerseys that the school required, “Baba-Ido primary school is in dire need of pupils’ dual seats, additional classroom, source of drinkable water, access road among others.
Responding in his capacity as chairman of the occasion, Prophet Vhovhen who had been a regular contributor to the development of the school announced his donation of a bore hole to be sunk in the school for supply of portable water for the pupils and staff.
Others who the Head teacher recognised as having contributed to the development of the school include: Mr. Nigeria Ovuema (Chairman of the PTA), Chief Eruegan, Pastor Kelvin Nwachukwu of World of Life Bible Church, (Okwagbe) Late Hon Dennis Djoma, Elder Solomon Ala (Edu Sec for Ughelli South LGEA).
At the end of the sports competition, Aruegan House came top with 192 points. Moroh House came second with 185 point while Baba-Ido House occupied the third position with 168 points.
The 4th, 5th and 6th positions were grabbed by Kwode House (157), Omoko (149) and Oviri (139) respectively.
Earlier, the Chief Inspector of Education for the LGA, Mrs. Judith Obanovwe called on all stakeholders in the education industry not to neglect schools in the rural areas as records show that pupils from the rural areas have achieved rare feats that are comparable to the performance of pupils in urban area and the cities.
