Member representing Burutu Federal Constituency at the House of Representatives, Rt. Hon. Julius Pondi, has been commended for upgrading Ogulagha ICT Centre to Joint Admission and Matriculation Board (JAMB) Computer Based Test (CBT) centre.
A youth and student leader, Comrade Tare Philip Magbei, while giving this commendation said the JAMB CBT centre is a first of its kind in the entire Ijaw riverine area of Delta State, covering nearly four local government areas.
“It is worthy of mention that the recently upgraded and commissioned ICT Centre cum JAMB CBT Centre is a first of it’s kind in the entire Ijaw riverine area of Delta state covering nearly four local government areas”, he added.
Comrade Tare who described Hon. Pondi has a trailblazer, also lauded him (Pondi) for steps taken by him in ensuring the standard of education is improved in the coastal region of the state.
He said, “This is a project that has proven beyond reasonable doubts that Rt Hon. Julius Pondi has in mind the advancement of educational standard in our coastal region.”
“For long the people have been clamouring for projects such as this centered around bettering the status quo with regards to education and Hon. Pondi has distinguished himself as a pace setter.
“Let this be a wake up call to all our representatives ranging from those at the local government level down to those at the federal level to emulate the laudable strides of Hon. Pondi in meeting the basic needs of the people amongst which education is a paramount aspect.”
While pleading for more developmental projects from Niger Delta political office holders particularly those from the coastal areas, the youth leader urged such project as the Ogulagha JAMB CBT centre be extended to other communities in the area.
He urged other politicians to emulate Hon. Julius Pondi in delivering dividend of democracy to their people.
