PORT HARCOURT—A lawmaker in Rivers State, Mr. Evans Bipi, has cautioned the state government against stopping Federal Government from going ahead with its plan to construct a model school in Ogu community, Ogu/Bolo Local Government Area.

Reacting to a call by the state on the Federal Government to stay off schools in the state, Bipi, who spoke yesterday in Port Harcourt, said the people of Ogu/Bolo will not hesitate to come out to protest against the state government if it stops the project.

Evans, who is a factional Speaker and represents Ogu/Bolo in the state House of Assembly, said the community had not been lucky to have a federal project, so it will resist any attempt by the state government to stop the Federal Government project in the area.

He said: “This is the first time in history that Ogu/Bolo will be remembered by any government at the centre and the state government cannot deny us of this opportunity.”

The Minister of State for Education, Mr. Nyesom Wike, had said Federal Government will reconstruct some secondary schools in the state.
