A FORMER managing director of the Transport Company of Anambra State(TRACAS), Frank Igwe, has called on governments across the federation to reopen schools with a view to operating morning and afternoon sessions to avoid overcrowding of students and pupils.

  Ogbuehi Igwe in an interview with the press at Uli, noted that operationalising the practice will enhance social distancing against the COVID-19 pandemic. He stressed that government’s policy on e- learning is a well thought out idea that needs to be modified given the inability of some parents and guardians to access the internet and lack of computer literacy among the children.

   According to him, since government has relaxed its stand on church activities and burials, schools should equally be reopened to enhance the comprehensive learning of students and pupils.

  On the alleged importation of Almajiris into the Southern part of Nigeria in this COVID-19 era, Ogbuehi Igwe, who is a community leader in Uli, and the managing Director, Onowu Uli Resources Limited in charge of Airtel in Anambra State, urged the governors of the South East Geo-Political Zone and the Ohanaeze Ndigbo to rise to the occasion of protecting the Igbo territory.

According to him, community policing and state police remain the best options to ensure the safety of the people of the south East region of the country.

  He regretted that in spite of the curfew imposed by the federal government to avert the spread of COVID-19, the reports of the alleged suspicious movements of some youths into the southern part of the country have gone viral through the social media.

  Ogbuehi Igwe expressed dismay that the issue of security is treated with levity in the country, while people from a particular section of the country are treated as sacred cows.

  In a related development, a legal expert from Umuawulu, Chilke Oranye frowned at the alleged importation of suspicious youths into the southern part of the country and expects all the governors of the South East extraction, their south south and south west brothers, the Ohanaeze Ndigbo and all concerned Nigerians to rise to the challenge of being security conscious.
