Governor Uduaghan who frowned at the state of Mary Magdalene Grammer School, Ashaka, Ndokwa East local government area of Delta State, observed that before some of the schools were handed over to the Missionaries, they were reconstructed as Model Secondary Schools.
Speaking at Aboh shortly before commissioning a 14.7 kilometer Ashaka-Aboh road, he said that government cannot watch and allow such facilities to waste after spending so much resources in his administration’s quest to provide quality and affordable education for Deltans.
As a result, he directed the Ministry of Basic and Primary Education to liaise with the Missionaries whose schools were not in use to hand over such schools back to government as there were many Deltans who desire free education from the government.
At Aradhe, Isoko North local government area of the state, Governor Uduaghan who commissioned the Aradhe/Ushie/Ashaka road ordered the contractor handling school building projects at Aradhe Secondary School to return to site within one week.
According to the Governor, the construction work going on in the school must be completed before he leaves office, stating that if the contractor was not capable of handling the project, it would be revoked and re-awarded to a more competent contractor.
