Given his penchant for academic development in the country, Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN ), Mr. Godwin Emefiele alongside his siblings, has donated 350 plastic chairs to two academic institutions in Agbor, Ika-South Local Government Area of Delta State.
The schools that benefited from the Governor’s magnanimity, include the State School of Nursing, Agbor, College of Education, Agbor as well as Ika National Hall, Agbor.
Breakdown of the presentation revealed that while the State School of Nursing, Agbor and College of Education received 100 chairs apiece, Ika National Hall received 150 of the ‘made in Nigeria’ plastic chairs.
According to the CBN Governor who was represented by the Executive Chairman, Ika South Local Government council, Mr. Fred Ofume, the presentation was done in memory of their late Mother, Madam Alice Oghumagholem Emefiele who died on December 25, 2015 and buried in April, this year.
Presenting the chairs on behalf of the CBN Governor’s family, the council boss said, “The family of Godwin Emefiele has asked me to present these made in Nigeria plastic chairs to you in memory of their late Mother, Madam Alice Oghumagholem Emefiele.
“This is a token and it is not meant to solve all your challenges. This plastic chairs are all made in Nigeria product because of the Governor’s belief in Made in Nigeria product, a course he has always been championing.
“They (the Emefiele family) have asked me to present these to you in memory of their late mother. These are for your use and it is their belief that it will go a long way in aiding your learning here so that you can become better people in the future” he said.
Receiving the item, the recipient institutions, particularly the Principal of the state School of Nursing, Mrs. Thessy Onwuka commended the CBN Governor and his siblings for remembering them and coming to their aid, just as they assured him that they will put the chairs into proper use.
