A non for profit organisation, Eziokwu Ebubechuwku Foundation has called on the Federal Government to intensify efforts toward revamping education rural communities by setting qualitative measures to improve the academic capabilities of pupils in such communities.

Speaking at the event the Founder of the organisation, Mr Ezeukoh Ebubechukwu, said Nigeria would not achieve sustainable economic development until it leadership stopped paying lip service to education in rural communities.

Expressing concern over the increasing population of out-of-school children in the country, Ebubechukwu also urged the Federal Government to give priority to the education and welfare of pupils in public school.

He said, “The impact of education in any economy cannot be overemphasized. Giving children in public schools the opportunity to a life with education helps them to further their careers. An educated Farmer would have more contribution and more innovative ideas to national growth than one who’s not educated.

“The Federal Government should make efforts to revamp the academics of the rural dwellers, they should also make school much fun for rural kids. The government should put in qualitative measures to improve the academics and learnability of these rural kids because educating the rural kids would help to create an enabling environment where the concept of economic development would matter to them and will make them think for generations to come rather then their immediate needs.”

The EEF outreach which was tagged ‘Rural Education Bookdrive,’ Ebubechukwu said was part of its contribution to the development of education sector in the country.

He said, “The Foundation was established to offer community services to rural communities, and give academic scholarships to rural kids whom are unable to access good education; and scholarships to university students whom are unable to return to school. We were able to raise funds for six University students during the 2019 calendar year.
