Revamping education as well as the empowerment of women and youths will be the focus of the Ogidi Day Festival holding in Ogidi in Ijumu Local Government Area of Kogi State on Saturday, June 17, National President, Ogidi Development Union, Mr. Kayode Eniolrunda, said.

Eniolorunda made this known in Abuja, while speaking to journalists on plans for the yearly festival held by the agrarian community to celebrate the New Yam, showcase its culture and seek help in the execution of its developmental projects.

He said the community was determined to regain the comparative advantage in education that it once enjoyed and would therefore rehabilitate its educational infrastructure and work towards the improvement of the performance of its children in major external examinations.

Towards that end, Eniolorunda said the rehabilitation of the Ogidi Community Secondary School in the town had commenced and that some of the funds realized at the Ogidi Day this year would be channeled towards further upgrading facilities in the school.

Working with a United Kingdom based charity, Ripples Foundation; he said the community would develop specific programmes to engage the womenfolk and the army of unemployed youths in the community in productive activities.
