Senator Imo East representative, Ezenwa Onyewuchi, said his strong belief that education can break the chain of poverty and change lives is why he works hard to attract and give educational institutions to his constituents.
The lawmaker who is also a Labor Party senatorial candidate in the 2023 election said so in Naze in the Owerri North local government area of the state while donating six blocks of classrooms and toilets built at the primary school in Naze which he attracted.
Onyewuchi said that once a person acquires a qualitative education that equips them with relevant skills and knowledge, it is easier to achieve success in any field of endeavor.
He said success in one’s chosen career usually results in improved living standards and the banishment of poverty.
He said it was because of this clear understanding of the crucial role education plays in alleviating poverty and hunger and the suffering that comes with it that drove him to work diligently to improve his quality , providing a conducive learning environment for students.
He said that over the past three years he had donated more than 20 educational institutions in the nine local governments in the Owerri area.
The facilities, he said, ranged from classroom blocks, information and communication technology (ICT) labs, halls, among others. The legislator assured that he would continue to attract more such infrastructure to his voters.
He said that although negativity seems to have the upper hand in society currently, the worrying situation could be resolved if education returns to the place of pride it once held.
The legislator, while noting that the environment remains essential in the quest for quality and standard education, underlined that without it, teaching and learning would be seriously compromised.
