Uche Nwosu launched his Private School - East High College Owerri, Pupils to pay N150,000 School Fees

In the last 7½ years, Imo State Governor Rochas Okorocha through his 'free education' mentra has reduced the quality of learning and educational standard to a very low point. Imo which use to rank first in WASCE/NECO before Okorocha’s assumption of office in 2011 is now in the 5th position, Abia and Anambra States leading.
Secondary and primary school buildings and other educational infrastructures across the 27 LGAs of the State are in sorry state. The money provided by the federal government through Universal Basic Education (UBE) and Tertiary Education Trust Fund (Tetfund) for building and equiping primary, secondary and tertiary education are unaccounted for in the last seven years, except few poorly done fabricated school buildings and renovations that dotted Owerri Municipal City and abandoned uncompleted/fabricated block works along highways across the 27 LGAs without roofs, doors, windows, desk and other learning materials.
This poor educational standard in Imo with unconducive learning environment, low quality teachers and non availability of science and mathematics teachers has forced Imo parents to seek education of their children elsewhere.
Unfortunately, the same Governor Rochas Okorocha, his Chief of Staff and Son in-law, Uche Nwosu has cashed onto Imo peoples misery to open their own Private Primary and secondary school in Imo called "East High College Owerri" charging as much as One hundred and fifty thousand naira (N150, 000.00) for acceptance fees and twenty five thousand naira (N25, 000.00 for entrance examination fee. This is outside regular tuition fees. What a tragedy of history!
The private school owned by Uche Nwosu and his wife, Uloma Rochas Okorocha Nwosu is built and equipped with State of the art facility!
The Okorocha’s anointed 2019 Imo All Progressive Congress, APC, governorship aspirant, Ugwumba Uche Nwosu and wife, Lolo Uloma Rochas Nwosu are owners of multi-billion investments in Owerri, Abuja and Lagos, they include Hotels, Shopping mall, Agro-farm, Radio and TV Stations, Petrol Gas Stations, Estate, etc.
This is similar to the release of above thirty five million naira (N35, 000 000.00) monthly for the office of the first lady of Imo State for the default primary school children HUNDRED NAIRA (N100) take home which was fantasized by the Okorocha’s at Inauguration, but unfortunately that exercise has been a condit pipe to defraud and siphon Imo people's federal allocation.
While the exercise stopped immediately after the inaugurated, the rescue mission government has been approving capital receipt for it's execution up till now. You will then ask for what?
Similar grants are continually made available for amnesty program for restive youths of Ohaji Egbema and Oguta LGAs through the office of the first Lady, yet the youths of the Oil producing communities have remain impoverished and today used as cannon folder for the actualization of Okorocha’s 3rd term bid through the vaulting political ambition of his Son-in-law, Uche Nwosu.
One would be worried to ask, where comes the fund used to build the estimated six billion naira (N6, 000 000 000.00) Estate at Akachi road owned by the wife of Imo State Governor, Nkechi Rochas Okorocha.
Imo is truly bleeding and in an intensive care unit waiting for God's intervention. Who will rescue my dear state of Imo, the Eastern Heartland of Owerri?
