The recently organized summit by Delta State government led by H.E Dr Okowa on the theme : leap frogging in education is just a fiasco that was just used to enrich political associates/aides and the ministry of education men because the major stakeholders in the educational sector were not participants in the summit.
The essence of the summit was dead on arrival by non inclusiveness of the major stakeholders that are in the sector that are experiencing the frog leaping first hand.
However, the greatest hypocrisy of the summit is the making of case by H.E Dr Okowa for a better educational environment and standards for improvement on quality education.
It’s indeed a hypocrisy to be making a case for improvement on quality education on a summit and the Delta State university that H.E Dr Okowa is the visitor released their last batch of admission on the 17th January 2016 and expect them to begin examination on 15th February 2016.
This is the leap frogging itself at display because screening and medicals of those admitted will take a week plus which thus leaves the students to just less than 3weeks to receive lectures and write examination.
It’s expediently imperative to state unequivocally that this orchestrated/calculated failure prepared waitingly for the newly admitted students is not an improvement on quality education but a retrogression and cog in the wheel of improvement on quality education and as well hypocrisy of H.E Dr Okowa who happens to be the visitor of the university.
Moreso, I believe the prosperity agenda is not an orchestrated/calculated failure waitingly prepared for the newly admitted students and as such appeal to the conscience of H.E Dr Okowa to do the needful by intervening for the postponement of the examination to give the new students a little more time to prepare for their examination because less than 3 weeks is never enough for learning and preparing for examination where quality output is expectant.
