ADDRESS BY DR. (MRS.) ROSE ACHOLONU DURING THE FIRST SOUTH-EAST EDUCATION SUMMIT ORGANIZED BY THE CONSULTATIVE FORUM OF VICE-CHANCELLORS OF SOUTH-EAST UNIVERSITIES (GENDER ISSUES IN REVIVING EDUCATIONAL VALUES IN THE SOUTH-EAST ZONE OF NIGERIA)

AUTHOR: DR. (MRS.) ROSE ACHOLONU

AFFILIATION: IMO STATE UNIVERSITY OWERRI

I wish to begin by thanking the organizers of this epoch-making event, the First Education Summit, organized under the auspices of the Consultative Forum of the Vice Chancellors of South-East Universities, for the invitation to present this paper. All right thinking citizens of this nation in general, and the South-East Zone in particular, would regard this event as a most welcome historic moment. I wish to join these people in commending the initiators of this most laudable project, which symbolizes true and patriotic commitment, as well as seriousness of purpose and concern, over the current sorry state of education in the SES. We most sincerely congratulate you and wish you continued God’s blessings, protection, and inspiration. My joy at this auspicious occasion derives from a number of factors: First, that such a concrete step is being taken today to discuss the state of education in Igboland, an issue which is at once critical, sensitive and very dear to our hearts. This is so, because education is generally regarded as the greatest industry in this geo-political zone, which constitutes the heartland of the devastated battlefield of the Nigerian/Biafran war. Hopefully, the messages emanating from this forum would serve as a clarion call to the Federal Government and other interested Parties, reminding them of the promises of Rehabilitation, Reconstruction and Reconciliation (Reintegration) made to our people, at the end of the civil war, thirty-two years ago.

    Woah! I’m really loving the template/theme of this blog. It’s simple, yet effective. A lot of times it’s difficult to get that “perfect balance” between superb usability and visual appeal. I must say you’ve done a superb job with this. In addition, the blog loads super quick for me on Internet explorer. Exceptional Blog!
