Former lawmaker, Senator Nkechi Nwogu, has traced Nigeria's slow paced
development to  the non-implementation of legislations passed by the
Country's National Assembly.

Nwogu, who  interacted with journalist at the sidelines of the 2nd national convention of Immaculate Heart Old Girls Association, Abia State, (IMMAHACO) in Abuja, explained that the country has good laws especially in  the educational sector.

"The legislations are there, but we are lacking in  implementations.
The current administration is doing well,  for instance, we now have school
feeding programme that we never had. People could not come to school
because they could not feed. Legislation is a continuous process. They
should amend those laws that are obsolete. The National Assembly is on
top of what is expected of them in terms of legislations.", she proffered

She, further, urged well-meaning Nigerians to remember their Alma
mater, stressing that the onus of reviving schools should not be left
for government alone.

She said: "I want to use this opportunity to appeal to men and women
that have gone through secondary schools to think about their Alma
mater. I am asking people to make contributions to schools that will
lead to nation building. They should not wait to be called.

"I am happy that the current federal government has reinstated history
in our secondary schools. How can a nation live without having history
that will tell you what yesteryears were in our schools?"

Meanwhile, IMMAHACO Alumni President, Abuja Chapter, Dr. Lilian
Oguguo, said the Alumni has budgeted N450 million to build a befitting
refectory for the school.

She said: "The school is full of grass and dilapidated. Since
government is not funding it, we want to appeal to well-meaning
Nigerians to help us revive the school because If you do not invest in
your children it would be like garbage in and out. For our refectory,
we have a budget of N450 million to build a good refectory for the
school.

"They are so many structures that are bad. But the current project is
the refectory. We have to do one at a time. It's not an issue of
calling billions that we will not be able to achieve.'', she maintained
