The founder of Omega Power Ministry, Apostle Chibuzor Gift Chinyere on Wednesday lamented that five siblings of late Deborah can not speak English.
The cleric in a post on his Facebook account disclosed that only one of the brothers can speak English.
This is coming weeks after the cleric moved the family to Port Harcourt following the death of Deborah.
Apostle Chinyere wondered which language was been used to teach them in their previous school.
He noted that for Deborah’s siblings to catch up with their lectures in class, they have to organise special English classes for them, including their parents.
The cleric charged the government to look into the language used in teaching students in schools in villages.
Apostle Chinyere wrote, “Am surprised and shocked. Among the 6 siblings of late Deborah, only one of the brothers can speak English.
“Why am surprised is, what language do they use in teaching them in school?
So that means all the students in their school can not speak common English.
“THIS IS VERY SAD. So how can they blend into society when they grow up?
Even in one of the OPM free schools that is inside my village in Ohanku Abia state, the children there can speak good English.
“Now for Deborah’s siblings to be able to meet up with lectures in their class we have to organize special English classes for them all including their parents before they can join their classmates.
“Please I hereby call on the government to look into what these schools inside villages teach their students.”
