As part of its resolve to give back to the society, Ighodaro family in partnership with the South South Women Forum, Michigan, USA have built and commissioned a six classroom block in Irhigon community of Uhunwode Local Government Area, Edo State.
Mrs Adesuwa Ighodaro Haney who was the former president of the Association during the project commissioning said, “Education is a right and the children needs to be able to learn in a conducive environment with good facilities.
“Also if everyone can support government, things will get better and quicker than we expected, hence the family and the forum contributed this very little quota,” he said.
Elated with the execution of the project, High Priest Chief Eghafona Ugiagbe ( The Ohen Adagbafi of Irhigon village)
said, “This is a very wonderful and exciting moment to see that this project is been completed and commissioned.
“We have waited for so long for the government to help us but now a very few individuals and this organisation of The Nigerian South South Women Forum have done it for us.
“Words are not enough to Express our gratitude but I pray that God Almighty will refill your pocket a million times over. And for our daughter, Adesuwa may God and our ancestors continue to bless you and protect you and your household including your association members in all of your endeavors,” he said.
Mrs Adesuwa Haney expressed optimism that the family and forum will execute more projects in the community.
According to her, “We hope to see this village, the school and indigenous people becoming great men and women of industries, also that leaders both local, state , national and world shall come from this village.”
