    Politicians build religious houses, neglect schools – Okorocha

    Published By:

    Rochas Okorocha, the founder of the Rochas Foundation and a former governor of Imo State, has started a Teach a Child/Sponsor a Child Project with the goal of enrolling one million out-of-school children.

    This was contained in a statement made available to journalists on Wednesday, the ex-governor made this known at the unveiling of the project in Abuja on Tuesday.

    Okorocha said, “In Africa, we have over 50 million out-of-school children and Nigeria has 13.5 million out of this figure; if we have one million people who can actually teach or sponsor a child, we will be better for it.

    “In Nigeria, we have built political parties, hotels, churches and mosques but we have not built factories that manufacture dreams and aspirations. When I look back some 20 years ago, my thought is that education should be better by now.

    “We have over 200 million people in Nigeria, out of this figure, if we can have one million Nigerians who can actually teach and sponsor children, then we will not be having the problem of out-of-school children.

    He further, said that the project would be a volunteering and mentorship programme that would take all out-of-school children back to school by 2050.”
