IMO STATE BANS USE OF PHONES BY STUDENTS IN PRIMARY AND SECONDARY SCHOOLS.

DETERMINED to instill
discipline and stem
crime, the Imo State
government yesterday
banned the use of
handsets by all primary
and secondary school
children in the state.
The state
Commissioner for
Education, Prof. Adaobi
Obasi disclosed this
while speaking with
some journalists at the
state- owned Imo
Broadcasting
Corporation (IBC),
Owerri.
“Government will
ensure the
enforcement of the ban
to the letter,” she said,
warning parents,
teachers and guardians
to take note of the ban.
According to her, the
state government has
screened 2,235 persons
involved in the
controversial 10,000
jobs offered by the
immediate past
government of Chief
Ikedi Ohakim, adding
that 750 have been
certified to be employed
soon in the education
sector.
Prof. Obasi said the
state government has
approved the
construction of
classroom blocks in
each of the 305
Independent National
Electoral Commission
(INEC) wards spread in
the 27 local councils of
the state, stating that
they would be
completed within 18
months.
She urged parents who
withdrew their children
from school for lack of
funds to return them to
the schools as the
state government has
long introduced free
education in public
primary and secondary
schools.
