|VP Osinbajo Seeks More Intervention For Idp's Education by Lydia696: 3:46pm On Feb 05, 2020|
Vice President Prof Yemi Osinbajo has called on stakeholders to lend more support and interventions towards the education of displaced children in the North East.
Osinbajo was the Special Guest of Honour at the Atlantic Hall School’s 30th Anniversary Celebration and Launch of Endowment Fund for Indigent Scholars on Saturday in Lagos.
The vice president said he and some friends had set up a fund and built schools accommodating no fewer than 1500 displaced children in the North East.
He said that thousands of children, especially girls who had lost their parents in the North East, were still displaced.“Permit me to throw a challenge to the Board of trustees and all of us here; in Aug., 2015, I paid my first official visit to Maiduguri, Borno State to inspect the Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs) and other facilities for the victims of the conflict in the Northeast.
“We counted over 49,000 young children who had lost their parents; almost half of them girls; that was only in parts of the metropolis; there were thousands more.
“The tragedy of conflict and its outcomes in poverty and displacement is stark; governments alone cannot handle it; there are international NGOs here and there but the local private response is still so little.
“I met with a group of friends and set up the North East Children Fund NECT, chaired by Jim Ovia; the objective is to build learning Centres/schools equipped to handle traumatized children, and give them world class education and care.
“We have built the first accommodating over 1500; we have taken over another school for about 700, and are looking at the prospects of a bigger facility,’’ he said.
He said that the board invited Grange School, Lagos to help in teacher and school experience orientation and it had done a wonderful job.
According to him, in spite of the best efforts of the Borno State government, much more remains to be done.

Seeing the picture of the school in the Borno built by the VP with the help of some friend has really shown to so many about Osinbajo's compassion for the IDPs

The vice president built schools for the DIPs because he knows the value of education. This is one of the best ways government can impact positively in to their futures.

Going through the schedule of the VP and his activities recently, you will discover that the VP really has Nigerians at heart and that He is more than willing to work things out

God bless VP Osinbajo. But only the ignorant will still be hating on the VP after all he does concerning the welfare of Citizens of this Country. He is a very diligent, hardworking and considerate leader. He is awesome.

Education is the fastest means to liberalize people and it is obviously one of the main pillars that VP Osinbajo is using to tackle the menace of poverty especially at the level of kids in the society.
