Wife of the Rivers State Governor, Justice Eberechi Nyesom-Wike has stated that an initiative called RivEthics Clubs will be established in secondary schools across the state with the objective of guiding children to be responsible citizens.
She revealed this at the Government House in Port Harcourt while receiving the Women of the Diocese of Evo of the Anglican Church.
Justice Nyesom-Wike said that the first RivEthics Club will be established at the Archdeacon Crowther Memorial Grammar School (ACMGS), Elelenwo in Obio-Akpor Local Government Area.
“A RivEthics Club established in ACMGS. We also plan to replicate it across other schools.
“The idea is to guide our children, to strengthen them to boost their confidence and to make to abstain from joining cults. We are working to ensure that they become responsible citizens”.
The Governor’s wife noted that teachers of the pilot school would be trained by RivEthics on how to impact positive values on the students.
She informed that RivEthics and Old Students of ACMGS have resolved to open accounts for all the students of ACMGS to encourage the students to imbibe a saving culture that will support their pursuit of education.
