From Steve Oko, Umuahia

Senator Theodore Orji representing Abia Central district has embarked on the renovation of his alma-mater primary school – St. Michael’s Primary School, Umuaokparaeze, Umuahia Ward three.

Orji also sunk a water borehole for the school owned by the Catholic Church.

Speaking during an inspection tour of the project, Orji said the gesture  was borne out of his passion for pupils and staff of the school.

He said he was deeply touched by the aging facilities in the school and decided to intervene as part of the ways to appreciate his root.

The former governor said the bore hole would also supply water to residents of the area, promising to keep using his privileged position to better the lives of people.

He noted that he had also embarked on renovation and fencing of so many schools in the zone to help promote education in the district.

Orji who also acknowledged that his son, Hon. Chidenum Orji is also on similar exercise, said investment in education remained the best way of assuring a peaceful and prosperous society.

He said that while serving as governor he had given a facelift to many schools in the state including Santa-crux, his alma-mater secondary school.

Orji therefore, enjoined the management of the school to help protect the facilities so it could last long.

Responding, Rev. Father Emmanuel Meje in – charge of the Parish, thanked the senator for the gesture, describing him as a distinguished ambassador of the school.
