PRESIDENT Muhammadu Buhari has approved the establishment of a Federal Science and Technical Secondary School in Imo State.
Commissioner for Information Declan Emelumba and his Education and Health counterparts – Prof. Bernard Ikegwuoha and Mrs. Damaris Osunkwo – said the government was grateful to the president and the Federal Ministry of Education for finding Imo suitable and worthy to site the school.
The ground breaking ceremony held at Umuaka in Njaba Local Government Area has been done.
Emelumba hinted that the government was considering a resumption date for tertiary institutions ‘so that students who have been at home due to the prolonged ASUU strike can resume and continue with their studies’.
The commissioner added that security agencies have been empowered to enforce the use of facemask to curtail the spread of Coronavirus. He reiterated that wearing of face mask, observation of other COVID-19 protocols were to avoid resurgence of Coronavirus.
According to Emelumba, the COVID-19 Community testing is still on in all the 27 local government areas. He noted that reports from the exercise show that the rate of spread from areas covered is very low, hence the need for the people to obey all the protocols.
