Inyang made the appeal yesterday in Uyo while briefing  the State Traditional Rulers Council (TRC) on the activities of the think-tank.

The chairman said the meeting was expedient to enable them know the situation the educational sector was facing, and their inputs for the development of a veritable roadmap to meet the educational needs of the state.

 Inyang, who is also the US Distinguished Scholar to Ethiopia explained that, the think-tank was established by the State Government to build on the fallout of September 2019 Education Summit and address the dearth of infrastructure, equipment furnishing in the sector and promote entrepreneurship in public schools in Akwa Ibom.

He said, the education sector which was ignored for too long  has resulted in the deplorable state of infrastructures and lack of teachers.

He explained   that since it was impossible for government to provide immediate solution to these challenges, a 10-year rescue programme was being worked out by Governor Udom Emmanuel through the thinks tank for effective and efficient academic delivery.

He described   Traditional institution as the custodian of Akwa Ibom education heritage, and urged them to cooperate with the government and schools management in preventing encroachment into school facilities  and vandalization of equipment.

The chairman, Akwa Ibom State Council of Chiefs, HRM. Ntenyin Solomon Etuk in his response  applauded the think tank for it’s efforts in identifying the gaps in the state education system, and commended government’s vision to reposition the education sector for the well-being of the people.

‘‘Having listened to the presentation backed up with facts, the traditional institution will do everything possible to facilitate the implementation of the roadmap in the state.”Etuk said.

He further appealed to the think tank to provide the TRC with details of the road-map so that, they could study and make inputs before presentation of the document to the State government adding that the TRC was interested in the life-long learning programme intended for the rural population.
