Imo State Governor, Rochas Okorocha, during his speech yesterday, to celebrate the World Teachers’ Day at the Heroes Square in Owerri, accused the Peoples Democratic Party, of being responsible for the present state of the nation’s economy.
According to him, “The PDP destroyed the economy of the country through mindless looting of the nation’s resources after its 16 years in power, which will take the country over 10 years to recover. So, this is the problem which has affected every sector including education.”
The Governor, however, noted that despite the bad economy, his administration had continued to pay special attention to the education sector in the state, stressing that education was the power of the state.
“Education is our power and it is the pivot of the rescue mission and not even the bad economy can deter us from investing in the education of our children because that is the only real legacy we can give to them.
“Today, because of the free education policy of this administration, the school enrolment has tripled in the last four years,” he stated.
Okorocha reiterated that his administration would continue to improve the welfare of the teachers in the state as well as creating a conducive learning environment.
