IN his quest to bequeath a good educational system, Delta State Governor Ifeanyi Okowa has inaugurated a six-man committee to organise an education summit.

Okowa, who spoke while inaugurating the committee in Asaba, said that the summit was imperative as it would check the falling standards and noticeable deficiencies in the education system in the state in particular and the country in general.

He noted that the theme of the parley which comes up in the first quarter of next year is, “Leap Frogging Education in Delta State”, adding that a good educational system had the capacity to produce transformed individuals as they would be equipped with needed knowledge and skills to develop the society and make a success of their careers and lives.

The governor said the committee, which has a former commissioner in the state, Prof. Patrick Muoboghare as chairman Vincent Magboma as secretary, should consider “learning goals, value orientation, social transformation, community participation, learning climate, service learning and centre of excellence” while choosing resource persons for the summit.
