Reactions as Governor of Kogi State Plans to Increase Tuition Fee. by Emyo(m) : 1:29 pm On Jul 08, 2013
AN OPEN LETTER TO THE EXECUTIVE GOVERNOR OF KOGI STATE- CAPTAIN IDRIS WADA
INCREMENT OF KOGI STATE TERTAIRY TUITION FEES.
First, let me tender an apology for using this open medium to draw your attention to the rather pathetic and threatening rumors on the lips of both students, aspirants, parents and the very purported electorate in whom the trust given to youto carry their visions and the aspirations of the entireKogi State citizen to the flyers came from, more worrisome is the cry of the flood victims.I have decided on this approach because the issues involved are for the populace. The issue concerns you, me and the indigenous sons and daughters of Kogi State.KogiState is blessed with some Federal Educational Institutions both secondary and tertiary educations.The State Pioneer leaders have also seen the need to encourage their indigenous state citizen to attend schools and become academics. Hence the establishment of schools and colleges in kogi state.
Kogi State University and Kogi State Polytechnic are examples of such crave. In the past our well-to-do parents travelled far for studies while the unfortunate ones dropped-out/stopped out at either primary seven OR FORM SIX.I am Emmanuel Ogiri C. Hailed from Igalamela-Odolu Local Government Area of Kogi State. Omale Adejo Ogiriis my father. All my elementary studies through primary to secondary schoolwas in Idah LGA of Kogi Stateand yet am studying law at the Kogi State University, established by Prince Abubakar Audu in 1999 to encourage full participation of Igala's and other tribes across Kogi in Academics. This is to say am not an outsider but a part-taker ofthis pathetic saga. Governor,Sir! I want to formally bring to your notice that increasingly, there has beena global shift toward recognizing and understanding the need for education in all states. If a graduate could be celebrated in a family or justan admission letter or say access to education are seen and counted as an achievement to any family, then the provision of accessible education could also be listed among societaldevelopments. Prince Abubakar Audu discovered this. Rochas Okorocha is practicing this. Hon. Friday Sanni (makama) knows this, thus his giving out scholarships to indigenous kogites of his constituency.
The only sustainable development is to develop ahuman being. The only way to develop a human is by developing and expatiating his intellectual mindset and that is what education does. A better society is that which has elites, people with educated mindset.
