The Abia state government has approved the building of two model schools in three senatorial zones, which it says would be fully equipped with facilities, aimed at improving education in the state.
Addressing newsmen in Umuahia, the Commissioner for Information, Bonnie Iwuoha, hinted that the government is not pleased with some of the learning facilities in the state.
He decried the state of infrastructural decay in most of the schools, especially in the rural areas.
Mr Bonnie stated the intentions of the government at the three senatorial zones (Abia North, Abia Central and Abia South).
“The schools which the state government intends to erect in the three senatorial zones of the state, would have modern school buildings and classrooms equipped with 21st century learning facilities.”
According to him “the government is determined to restore the quality of schools in Abia state and make education one of the pillars of sustaining growth.
“I want to confer to you that the desire to erect more than two modern schools is something the governor would want to do but the financial constraint can only take two schools at a time.
“As the economy improves, others would be built,” he stated.
