The Founder of Ikechukwu Ezeugwu Foundation, Ikechukwu Ezeugwu has handed over revamped science laboratory blocks, through his foundation in collaboration with Later-day Saint Charities, to Enugu State Ministry of Education.

The event was graced by government officials, Igwes of all autonomous communities and other traditional rulers in Ovoko, many indigenous sons and daughters of Ovoko and as well as lovers of education who came to witness the commissioning ceremony of the project by the Enugu State Commissioner for Education, Prof Uche Eze.

The lawmaker in a statement released to journalists in Abuja thanked the Governor of Enugu State, Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi for his innovative mindset and unwavering passion for education. “From the years I have been with the former administration, I have come to understand and appreciate why Gov. Ugwuanyi has invested so much in education.

He added that Education requires enormous funding and Enugu state is ranking high when it comes to promoting science and technology. As I speak, Enugu State Basic Education Board (ENSUBEB) is set to commence another round of infrastructural projects in our primary and post-primary schools, the Enugu State Scholarship and Education Loans Boards (ESSELB) has recorded immense success too in supporting intelligent but less privileged students in both local and overseas institutions of higher learning” he hinted. He took time to encourage the students of his alma mater, stressing that education remains the only key to success.

He briefly narrated his experience during their time in school and adviced that students should take their studies serious. “Ovoko Boys has produced elites and we will reach out to them so that all hands will be on deck as quality education does not come cheap and government cannot do it alone” he concluded.

The state Commissioner for Education, Prof. Uche Eze while commissioning the project expressed his heartfelt gratitude towards Hon. Ikechukwu Ezeugwu’s humanitarian contributions to the education sector, he went further and advised the students of Ovoko Boys to remain resolute in pursuing their academic goals.

The senior prefect of Ovoko Boys Secondary School, Master Iheanacho Obetta who began his appreciation note with avalanche of praises ignited by excitement, extolled and prayed for the founder of Ikechukwu Ezeugwu Foundation.

In his vote of thanks, the principal of Ovoko Boys Secondary School, Mr. Titus appreciated Ezeugwu for the donation.” Today we are here to celebrate the successful completion as this project is being handed over to the Enugu State Government. My teachers and I cannot thank you enough, only the Almighty God will reward you.
