Oza of Onicha-Uku Promotes Education: Scholarships Offered at Awareness Event

In collaboration with the Advocate For Good Governance in Nigeria, Chief Peter Onye Ejiniwe, the esteemed Oza of the Onicha-Uku kingdom, spearheaded a remarkable public awareness event aimed at secondary schools throughout Aniocha North.

The event, held at the Comprehensive Secondary School in Onicha-Uku, Delta State, had the theme “Education Cannot Wait,” emphasizing the crucial role of education in personal, communal, and national advancement.

Chief Peter Onye Ejiniwe highlighted the significance of education as a cornerstone for a brighter future, urging students to remain dedicated and virtuous while pursuing their studies. He emphasized the need for parental guidance and encouraged parents to nurture their children towards becoming exemplary individuals.

As a show of generosity, the Oza of Onicha-Uku pledged scholarships for the top two students from SS3 to the university level, along with a competition offering scholarships to outstanding students from participating schools. His motivation stemmed from a desire to fill the void he experienced growing up, where such motivational interventions were scarce.

Mr. Monday Ojoma, Director of Programme at the Advocate For Good Governance In Nigeria, echoed the call to ignite students’ passion for education, urging them to prioritize learning.

The principal, Mr. Onainor Fidelis, expressed his appreciation for the initiative for positively influencing students’ perspectives on education, noting its impact in reshaping their attitudes towards learning. He also highlighted the school’s security challenges, appealing for support from the government and stakeholders to address these issues.

Miss Egwuyenga Victory, speaking on behalf of the students, expressed gratitude for the enlightening experience, affirming that education is indeed the pathway to success.

The event concluded with the distribution of writing materials to students, with notable figures from various sectors in attendance, including representatives from the Health Authority, Parent-Teacher Association, and esteemed community leaders.
