The Environmental Education Leadership Corps is a KEEC program that places AmeriCorps members throughout Kentucky to develop and deliver environmental education programming while being trained in best practices.
During the event, KEEC announced Tates Creek Elementary School in Fayette County and Saint Agnes School in Jefferson County as the winners of the Kentucky Green Ribbon Schools Award.
The KEEC, which has as members Ahmadu Ali, Nicholas Ugbane, Gabriel Aduku among others, had last week met and endorsed the candidates of the PDP in the general election, saying Atiku was the best option for the country as the people vote next Saturday.
'It is when KEEC lies to the world that the nine local governments of Kogi East have resolved to support the PDP that we must rise up and prove that they lied.
The Kogi COS, however, noted that the KEEC didn't support Atiku because they think he could improve on anything Buhari had achieved in office, 'but because of his well-publicised plans for his friends, those whom he insists are entitled to be enriched with assets taken from the poor and given to the rich.
The youths described the KEEC headed by Col Ahmadu Ali (rtd) as a group of selfish elders that were only protecting their personal agenda.
Speaking under the aegis of the Kogi East Coalition of Youths for Good Governance, the youths noted that many of the allegations leveled against Bello by the KEEC were unfounded and concocted lies.
According to the youths, the allegations raised by the KEEC, which include insecurity, unpaid salaries, the stalemate at the Kogi State University, Anyigba among others were deliberate attempt to orchestrate conflict between the zone and the government.
