In another post, Dikeh wrote: “HALF EDUCATION IS CHEAPER AND BETTER THAN ILLITERACY.

“According to sociologist, an infant is a helpless organism that needs the support of people to become fit in the society.

“Education is a powerful weapon one can easily use to influence the world, while educating a child is building a generational system to sustain our cultural heritage and values.

“Let’s support the Educational Scholarships System to enable the poor and less privileged ones around us to obtain simple and basic education.

“Poor education brings poor breeding, poor service delivery and poor maintenance culture of our economy and social investment.

“Dear friends, supporters and well wishers, let’s assist one or two persons around us as we plan on embarking on first term school resumption. ILLITERACY AROUND US, DIRECTLY AFFECTS US AS WELL.”
