An Information Technology firm, Neroitech Inventions has presented cash and notebooks to staff and pupils of Ekiugbo primary school Ughelli, in Ughelli North local government area of Delta state, to ease their education.
Presenting the notebooks to pupils, Mr Aghogho Odjada who was with Neroitech Invention team leader, Isuru Nyerhowo and others said, “This gesture is to encourage the pupils because primary is the basic foundation of any given society.
According to Odjada “It is important we educate the children now because the society we are living in today, they no longer value the importance of education believing that school is a scam.
“What they are seeing today is temporary enjoyment, they should look at something that will bring them lasting benefit and school is the only thing that can give them what they want.
“And in other to be successful, you must to go to school so that when the opportunity present itself, they can provide their selves with it.”
A team member of Neroitech Inventions, Engr Paul Omadevuae on his part said, “We came to understand that government schools particularly the primary schools lack so many things and we have to start from the basic.
“Things are difficult, the parents are not finding it easy and now that the society has given to us the best we can do is to give back. We mapped out the area with which we are to give back and we discovered that the primary schools are lacking, hence we have to start from there.
“As a parent, it will be an act of wickedness if i tell my kids that school is scam and if i cannot say that to my kids, i will never do it to others kids. We are distributing these books to help in our little way”.
On her part, the Head teacher, Agbroko Janet expressed happiness over the donation said, This will help the pupils because most of them do not have notebooks to write and we are appealing on other organizations to emulate Neroitech Inventions.”
