STUDENTS have been urged to protect facilities in their institutions as such would not be easy to replace when damaged.
Leader of State of the Youth (S.O.Y), Delta Chapter, Mr Ejimchi Dumbili made the call in Warri during the third edition of “School is not a scam” campaign.
According to him, “<span;>We call on youths who are students at various schools to preserve the infrastructure already available as we cannot ask for more when we cannot maintain what we already have.
“Let us defend what is ours.
“In terms of education, hope is not lost, our young ones still have interest in being educated, and as a people, we must support them.
“Governor is doing a lot for education, though, it is is not enough; there is need for improvement both in the area of infrastructure, teachers and their remuneration and even policies to boost in the educational system.
“We call on our parents who are key stakeholders to support and encourage our youths, especially those who are still under their care as the family forms the basis for social development.
“We call on everyone in the community, especially those who have the purchasing power, to see that we provide an environment for quality education as government alone cannot do it, collectively there is little that we cannot achieve.”
