  4. Do you think it’s something good to misleadingly claim that Ebonyi State is not educationally disadvantaged? And where is the evidence of your claim that “the government of Dave Umahi has aggressively funded and repositioned education in Ebonyi State…” as your list contains only private and unitary schools which are only attended by privileged kids? I’m sad to read this trash.Very sad.
