Mr. Stephen Alatan, who responded on behalf of the head teachers, appealed to Hon. Emiko to discourage parents from withdrawing their children from the riverine schools and taking them to urban schools, saying it is not helping education grow in the area.

Mr. Alatan called on the relevant authorities to repair dilapidated school buildings in the riverine communities, just as he enjoined indigenes of the coastal communities to provide enabling environment for teaching and learning to thrive in the area.


An indigene of Bateren, Prince Friday Etuwewe and Mr. Fenemigho Godwin from Deghele, commended Hon. Emiko for the kind gesture.
