of Delta State.
To refresh your memory, these were people that were sadly been left behind in the stream of educational development that it rightfully deserves.Delta Women started started the campaign to get a school for the people of Oku-ijorogu in July, 2012. There were no schools in this village. Those in need of an opportunity to be educated, were forced to travel to neighboring villages, clocking so many miles each way, daily.
We implored the government to consider this request in earnest, and take appropriate and necessary steps to implement the policy in Oku-ijorogu in the spirit of fairness and equality.
We congratulate the Governor for keeping his words.
