IN line with his administration’s commitment of improving literacy level, the Isoko-North Council Chairman, Christian Othuke Iteire, has revived Adult Education Programme in towns that make up the local government area.
While charging the instructors and facilitators of the Adult Education Programme to be committed and teach with missionary zeal on Thursday, June 10, 2021 at the Local Government Council Secretariat in Ozoro, Iteire said: “the literacy programme is designed to take care of the educational needs of those who missed out the earliest opportunity to be educated while growing up.”
“The high level of illiteracy in Isoko North is not only unacceptable, but it is inconsistent with my vision of an enlightened local government council where there is 100% percent literacy for all people.
“I want to assure that the adult education programme is free of charge in order for the people to be interested and participate actively,” he said.
The Isoko North Council boss also assured the instructors and facilitators of the programme of the reopening of all Adult Education Centres within the local government area, and to provide adequate teaching/learning materials.
While enjoining the people of the local government area to seize the opportunity to learn, Iteire called on the stakeholders, NGOs, religious organisations, government and international funding agencies to partner with the local government council in ensuring the success of the adult literacy programme.
A statement by Ajiri-Oghene Oreh, Chief Press Secretary to the Chairman of Isoko North Local Government Council, said that the officers present during the briefing for the facilitators of the programme included the supervisor of finance, Irori Samuel, the supervisor of environment, Alebe Joshua Onos, the supervisor of agriculture and community development, Mark Ekakitie, and the special adviser to the Chairman, Imogu Joseph.
Others were the staff of the Department of Education; Ovedhe Akemu Nathaniel, assistant director of education and Acting Head of Education, Grace Ogba, Adult Education Supervisor, Juliet Ido Education Officer 1, and Ogoro Amaka education officer.
