Qual­ity ed­u­ca­tion drives eco­nomic growth – Guinea First Lady

Daily Trust - - EDUCATION - From Jude Aguguo Owua­manam, Ow­erri

The First Lady of Repub­lic of Guinea, Ha­jia Djene Kaba Conde, has said African coun­tries can at­tain eco­nomic growth by pro­vid­ing qual­ity ed­u­ca­tion in schools.

Mrs Conde made the re­mark when she vis­ited Guinean stu­dents at the Rochas Foun­da­tion Col­lege of Africa, Ow­erri (ROFOCA). She said eco­nomic pros­per­ity could be rapid if more at­ten­tion is paid to the de­liv­ery of qual­ity ed­u­ca­tion in the con­ti­nent.

She said five stu­dents from her coun­try are school­ing free of charge in ROFOCA.

“I re­ceived the let­ter to bring five of my chil­dren to study free in Rochas Foun­da­tion Col­lege through the First Lady of Nige­ria Ha­jiya Aisha Buhari who is a good friend and a sis­ter,” she said.

In her speech ear­lier, wife of Imo State gover­nor, Nneoma Nkechi Oko­rocha said the col­lege was mainly to pro­vide ed­u­ca­tion to fu­ture gen­er­a­tion.

She said Mrs Buhari “helped in bring­ing five chil­dren each from the 55 na­tions of Africa” to the school.
