Ola ‘Kiya, Reporting

General Overseer of Omega Power Ministry (OPM), Apostle Chibuzor Chinyere, has called on government at all levels to look into the parlous state of basic education in rural communities across the country, especially in the north.

The benefactor of martyred Miss Deborah Yakubu’s family made the plea in his Facebook handle while explaining the academic state of the six siblings of Deborah in Port Harcourt, their new location.

He expressed shock that of the six siblings of late Deborah, only one of the brothers could mutter some English.

The philanthropist wondered what language is used to communicate with pupils in the northern part of the country such that the children cannot speak common English.

“I’m really surprised and shocked. Among the six siblings of late Deborah, only one of the brothers can speak English.

“Why I am surprised is, what language do they use in teaching them in school?

“So that means all the students in their school cannot speak common English?

“THIS IS VERY SAD.. So, how can they blend into the society when they grow up?” he queried.

He, however, disclosed that the case was different with pupils of one of his free schools in his village, adding that Deborah’s five siblings, as well as their parents, who can’t communicate properly in English, are being helped with special English classes.

“Even one the OPM free schools that is in my village in Ohanku Abia State, the children there can speak good English.

“Now for Deborah’s siblings to be able to meet up with lectures in their classes, we have to organize a special English classes for them all including their parents before they can join their follow classmates.

“Please, I hereby call on the government to look into what these schools inside villages teach their students!
