Community Secondary School Mpu; a shame to Senator Ike Ekweremadu
Education gives us knowledge of the world around us and changes it into something better. It develops in us a perspective of looking at life. It helps us build opinions and have points of view on things in life. Education makes us capable of interpreting things, among other things. It is not just about lessons in textbooks. It is about the lessons of life.
However the question in the lips of many Nigerian students is “can we actually get the above meaning of education in Nigeria as described above?”
Meanwhile Education is key to all the 17 development goals to which Nigeria subscribes, at the same time every sane person in Nigeria can attest the fact that Nigeria as a country has lost its own glory when it comes to education.
The story of Community Secondary School Mpu in Aninri Local Government Area of Enugu State the home town of former Deputy Senate President and the current Chairman Environment Committee in the 9th assembly.
With the personality of Senator Ike Ekweremadu, who has been a political figure for 2 decades now, one will believe that his community will be the envy of others in terms of development in every sector, but their story is the same with every community in Nigeria.
We must state categorically that the state of Community Secondary School Mpu is a big shame to the people of MPU, Aninri Local Government, Enugu state and our own very senator Ike Ekweremadu.
A visit to that school will prove that there is no government presence in that community as the students are made to study under these lapidated building with a hash condition.
Therefore Educarenews is calling on all that are concern to take a bold step to renovate the school in other to make learning fun for the students of Community Secondary School Mpu and for the development of the community as we know that it is not a crime to study in Nigeria government owned schools.
