…Why FG must restore History to school curriculum
…Begs Uzodimma to fix Ekemele-Owerri-Okigwe Road
Anglican Bishop of Ikeduru Diocese, Rt. Rev. Emmanuel Maduwuike has joined the crusade for the restructuring of Nigeria, insisting that it was the only option to save the country from further disaster and disintegration.
In his Presidential address at the third session of the fourth Synod of the Diocese of Ikeduru held recently at St James Church Amuzu-Amaimo1, Bishop Maduwuike said: “We at this Synod give our nod towards the immediate restructuring to save the little that is remaining of one Nigeria. The Anglican Prelate used the occasion to call for the reintroduction of History to the school curriculum as the only way to save our future generation.
”I feel that the removal of History from our school curriculum was deliberate to bring confusion in knowing about our origin and heritage. Studying History is necessary to avoid repeat of past mistakes.”
On the state of roads in Imo state, the Anglican Bishop of Ikeduru lamented the untold hardship and suffering of Imolites particularly those plying the Owerri-Okigwe high way, noting that the very disturbing bad stretch of the road at Ekemele Akabo is indeed a mountain standing before Zerubabel. The Bishop revealed that Ikeduru Diocese under his watch had been maintaining and rehabilitating the Ekemele-Akabo bad spot on the Owerri-Okigwe road.
He therefore reminded Gov. Hope Uzodimma of his earlier promise about six months ago to engage the services of a construction giant, Julius Berger Plc to fix the road.
“We want to remind you Gov. Hope Uzodimma of your promises to bring Julius Berger to Owerri-Okigwe road, any promise made to a little child is not easily forgotten. We therefore beg you to fix this very important road to save Ndi-Ikeduru and other users of the critical highway from untold hardship.”
The Synod was well attended by delegates and top dignitaries including Nnedimma Ikeduru, Mrs Anuli Maduwike, former National Chairman of Labour Party Barr. Dan Nwanyanwu among others.
