The students, staff members and stakeholders of Agwu High school, Nenwe Enugu popularly known as County has expressed delight over the massive development projects being executed simultaneously at the high school by the Deputy Minority Leader of the House of Representatives, representing Aninri, Agwu and Oji-River federal constituency, Hon. Toby Okechukwu.
Speaking with a stakeholder from nenwe ward 1, Engr. Nathaniel Chukwu, he said, “This project will help in uplifting the standard of education in nenwe and aninri as it will rekindle the confidence of some people that have left the town because of lack of good schools as they will see that government is doing something about it, and it will equally help to boost the economy of the town.
“We’ve always known Hon. Toby Okechukwu as one who is a lover of education in enugu west. We are very proud of him as a representative because he represents us well, and he has helped in developing education in his constituency.
“If other leaders in Enugu West could do one third of what he is doing to make sure that people are being empowered educationally, we believe that the sky will be our starting point. We pray that God will continue to guide him, and bless him and his family, because he has demonstrated his heartbeat for mankind” he said.
Mr Onuorah Ifeanyi who is a teacher and dean of studies for school and was also an old student of the school commended the Honourable who keeps putting up more structures in the school as it shows a season of a new dawn for the school.
“Toby plays a very good role in education. He has been doing this for all of Agwu and I pray that God gives him good health to continue. Having been a student of this school in 1982/83, education was very important to the youths. The school was founded in 1957 and we have had a very good academic record, including training and social interaction and networking for both students and teachers. We have our students participating in so many competitions all which have given the school a good name in Awgu” Onuorah said.
In an interview with Hon. Toby Okechukwu who spoke more on his development in the school, he said “I was a student of St. Vincent secondary school Awgu, and I intervened in St. Vincent by bringing it essentially back to life, now its being managed by missionary, we built about 5 classrooms, renovated some there. That is the same thing I want to do in Awgu high school Nenwe, I built their laboratory, and am now going to intervene to make sure they have additional six classrooms, so that we bring back the school to its former glory” he said.
