The Abuja-branch of Immaculate Heart Girls Secondary School, (IMMAHACO) Aba, Old Girls Association, has canvassed support for government and other managers of the education sector for urgent improvement in its standards in the country.

The acting President, Mrs Stella Akawari made the call in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Abuja, on the sideline of the association’s 2018 end of the year party,

Akawari stressed the need for all well-to-do Nigerians and organsations to support the sector.

“The government is always there doing their part but we have to do ours; the Catholic Church is doing well too but we have to add to their efforts.

“Let all old boys and girls of all the schools in the country get up to rebuild infrastructure for the sake of the next generation,” she said.

Comparing the equality of today’s education to what was obtainable in the 80s, Akawari said there was need to improve the system for the benefit of future generations.

Akawari, who graduated in 1985, urged the young generations to be focused and remain committed to hard work for a bright future.

The acting president said that IMMAHACO will in June 2019, hold it’s general convention in Abuja where old girls would deliberate on projects to be implemented in the school.

According to her, the idea is geared towards enhancing infrastructure facilities in the school.

“It is all about giving back to our school, if not for the Immaculate Heart school; our exposure, our direction in life, where we are today is all about the school.

“Now that we are grown and can afford it, we need to give back to the school to supports our sister coming behind.

“This will help have help give them a direction in life; some of us today are senators, House of Rep members, medical doctors, principals lawyers and successful business owners.
