He commended Anambra State Governor, Chukwuma Soludo for the landmark achievements recorded by his administration in the education sector, adding that the State had always played a leading role in education.
Uzuegbu said, “Anambra has always played a leading role in education. I implore other Governors of the South East zone to prioritize infrastructure and human development in public schools.”
While declaring open the training, the commissioner for education, Prof. Ngozi Chuma-Udeh, noted that Soludo’s passion for education has remained unparalleled.
Chuma-Udeh, represented by the Director of Schools, Ifeoma Agbaizu, emphasized that the feat was exhibited immediately on his assumption of office by the employment of 5000 teachers, while activities have begun for the employment of an additional 3000 teachers.
He said, “Principals occupy a highly placed position in Governor Soludo’s education agenda, as their roles in actualizing the education agenda of the State cannot be underestimated.”
Proimising the principals of an enjoyable stay in the State, Chuma-Ude urged them to maximize the benefits of the program for the progress of education.
