Imo state indigenes under the aegis of Imo state Indigenes Association, Kano last weekend flagged off an annual education scholarship scheme for indigent children in Kano state.
The president of the association, Comrade Damian Ayanwu said the decision to commence the scholarship scheme was inspired by the strong belief in education as the only legacy that could be bequeathed to the future generation.
According to him, the challenge of developing a better society is dependent on the provision of quality education to indigent children.
The people of Imo residing in Kano have identified the need to produce a better citizenry through the provision and availability of quality education, he said.
He urged non indigene communities across the country to compliment local, state and federal governments efforts by generating funds purposely to support the acquisition of quality education by indigent persons.
He commended President Muhammadu Buhari and governor Rochas Okorocha for their firm belief in education as the route to national development, urging political, traditional leaders and stakeholders to invest heavily toward the provision of education for all at all levels.
