Model Primary and Secondary Schools run by the Nigerian Navy in the state are to receive Rivers State Government's support over extension of its Information Communication Technology (ICT) programme. This announcement was made by Governor Chibuike Rotimi Amaechi, recently, during an inspection visit to the Nigerian Navy Schools located within the NNS Akaso, Borikiri, as part of his visit to Naval facilities in Port Harcourt.
The Governor explained that the extension of the facility to the Naval Schools would create an opportunity for Rivers children who attend the schools to also benefit from the computer literacy programme designed for the new schools in Rivers State from the primary level. Addressing officers and men at NNS Pathfinder, Rumuolumeni, the Governor thanked the Navy for its support to the State Government especially for the security of the state-owned water taxis, which had been anchored at the jetty for nearly two years. He attributed 80 % of their success to the contributions by the Rivers State Government, and promised that the Navy would continue to leave up to its obligations by protecting the waterways.
