Without solid foundation at primary school level, future of Nigerian child bleak – BPE

Director-General of the Bureau of Public Enterprises (BPE), Mr. Alex A. Okoh has stated that the Bureau commenced intervention at the primary level of the education sector in the country because of its firm belief that that level is the basic foundation for educational pursuit of the children who are the future leaders. 

Speaking at the commissioning of projects undertaken by the Bureau in line with its Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) at the Local Education Area (LEA) Primary School, Dutse-Alhaji in Bwari Area Council of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), Abuja on Friday, Okoh noted that without a solid foundation at the primary school level, the future of the Nigerian child would be bleak. 

He said the Bureau’s decision to intervene in some key sectors of the Nigerian economy is a fall out of its 30th anniversary where the management resolved to identify areas of intervention to bring reliefs to the citizenry. These include; Education, Health, Environment and people with disabilities. 
According to the Director General, the intervention in the LEA Primary School, Dutse-Alhaji includes: 
·        Renovation of the Nursery and Primary Blocks
