Valentine Day is celebrating all over the world on 14th February of every year, this is a day people show concern and Christ like love over others, this year’s own seems to be different from other years for the students of Special Education Centre Oron road, Uyo, as the Transition Committee Chairman of Uyo, Hon (Barr) Mfon Ben decided to celebrate this day with them in a grand style, he was accompanied into the celebration venue with his counterparts from Nsit Ubium, Hon Otobong Edemidiong and that of Ikono local government, Hon Itoro Columba.
The desire for this celebration came barely four days ago after the celebration of Her Excellency’s birthday with them as ALGON.
Welcoming the chairman’s entourage, the principal of the school, Pastor Mrs Deborah D. Benjamin took them round the school’s premises and shows them some needful areas for help.
Hon Itoro Columba, promised to look into the plight of the school although her Excellency, Deaconess Martha Udom Emmanuel has furnished the school with an outstanding refectory “when I listened to the songs that choir rendered, I asked myself where lay the disability in these children?, they sang wonderfully well, I promise you as ALGON we will try and come back again to fix at least one dilapidated structure for you”.
The celebration saw physically challenged choir and the band rendered songs that drop tears from the people’s eyes.
Goodwill messages were also received from people including the presenter of Beyond Barriers on AKBC, Mr Ubong Udo, who thank the chairman’s gesture and tagged it as the first chairman of Uyo local government to celebrate valentine with the students of the centre.
Children cut the valentine cake together with the chairman and his entourage while the chairman takes them on the dance floor .
