TVC’s Ovieteme George reports that the wet weather could not deter representatives of the United States Consul General, Thomas Hines and Maria Davydenko who arrived the Ijaw National Academy on a familiarization and inspection tour of the academic institution.
Brief interactions with students in the various classes were enough to give the visitors a concrete idea of the Governor Seriake Dickson administration’s policy thrust in the education sector.
Representatives of the US Consul General also visited the University of Africa in Bolou-Orua where officials took them on a guided tour of The School Of Foundation.
