The Ogun State Government says it will ensure massive infrastructural development in primary and secondary schools across the state.
The Commissioner for Education, Science and Technology, Prof. Abayomi Arigbabu, said this on Monday, while monitoring resumption of schools across the state for the 2022-2023 academic session.
Arigbabu said that he and his team had gone round to monitor the level of preparedness, as schools resumed for the new academic session.
He said that the visit was also to ascertain the kinds of infrastructure needed to be put in place in the schools by the state government.
The commissioner said that some of the schools had forwarded records of their infrastructural data to his ministry, stressing it was necessary for government to find out what should be done in some of the schools.
Arigbabu, who stated that government was committed to the revitalisation of the education sector, stressed that education remained the bedrock of any country.
“I want to encourage all learners to be of good conduct. I am impressed with the level of readiness in the schools,” he said.
In their remarks, the Principal of Remo Secondary School (Senior), Mrs Olubunmi Shuaibu, and her counterpart in Agunbiade Victory High School, Mrs Christianah Odeyele, said that the schools had resumed fully and were ready to ensure smooth educational activities in the session.
Other schools that were visited in the Ijebu axis include Molipa High School, Our Saviour Anglican Primary School, Italowajoda, Wesley Primary School as well as Moslem Primary and Comprehensive High School, Ijebu-Ode.
The team also visited Agunbiade Victory High School, Abeokuta.
