Ex-bank chief Jim Ovia sets up mega school in Agbor, Delta State

Ex-Zenith bank MD, billionaire business man Jim Ovia has set up a massive school in his hometown of Agbor in Delta State. The school is called James Hope College (JHC) and has a Briton as the principal. Mr Ovia built the school, which is supported by a substantial endowment fund, in his hometown to make education affordable to his people. The academic session for the first set of students will start in September 2013.

Sunday Otuns said...

Their school fees is not always affordable.very outrageous!I wonder if the subjects they teach in all these elites schools is different from what the ewutuntun grammar school teaches that makes their fees high as sky?

Sunday Otuns said...

Sassy girl is right.these elites dont do anything for free of charge.they want something in return.And when they get it they will recoup their expenses.

If he decides to run for political office he will win in a clean and fair election coa he has blessed his people tremendously. He single handed supplied portable water to his town,built a computer training schl for free education,now a college which am sure will be affordable for even a farmers child,this is to mention a few,I didn't mention d numerous scholarships or jobs given to people with good grades from Ika. Am not an indigene but I grew up there seeing his good works. Let the so called rich men emulate him and nigeria will be a better place for d poor.

Affordable my foot. I'm sure the tuition fee alone will be more than 100k per term, and you will call that affordable. Another business venture for the man. Carry go, na your money rake in more.

A job well done.

Well is a good thing for the rich to give to the poor out of the surplus. This was how ex MD of gtbank plc also initiated a college in abeokuta and it was also meant for the underprivileged but all of a sudden reverse is the case. Oga Jim is a good idea and initiative but I believe it will not dash the hope of the poor people. Remain blessed.

This is no doubt a nice gesture from Jim. I have only one appeal to make: let Jim give the brilliant indigent students of that state scholarship in the new school.

Good, but why John Hope College? Why not Jim Ovia College? Who is John Hope? Is that his father's name? We continue to "worship" these white men because of what?
