The councilor representing Ojuk north ward in the Akamkpa local government area legislative council and the deputy majority leader, Hon. Beatrice Ntui recently donated 30 desks to her constituency primary school, St. Matthew primary school Mbube, Ojuk north.
While handing over the desks to the school head teacher, Mrs. Glory Mbeh the councilor said that “As part of my constituency’s plight which made me aspire for this office and won against all odds is because I want to see what can be done in any little way to make learning easy for our children”.
According to her, “The 30 school benches are just the beginning and the St. Matthew primary school is just the first out of many to come”.
She urged the children not see the present challenges they pass through while learning and develop hatred for education but rather work hard with the little available and determine to change the situation positively.
She enjoined the head teacher of the school not to let her hopes dampen assuring that one day her pupils will find learning easy, and called on public spirited individuals and organizations to in any way possible support smooth learning for children anywhere they find themselves as no such effort goes unrewarded.
Responding, the head teacher of St. Mathew primary school, Mrs. Glory Mbeh commended the councilor for her support and prayed that God replenish the source.
She said: “Apart from chairs to sit we have other challenges ranging from learning materials, improved library, staffing, and serene environment among others”.
Among those who accompanied the councilor was Comrade Paul Effiong, the United Cement Company, UNICEF Host Community Youth President.
