Gov. Seyi Makinde says his administration is still committed to improving Oyo State’s education system.
Makinde said this on Monday as he handed out exercise books to students in the state’s public secondary schools.
According to the Nigerian News Agency (NAN), the presentation took place in the Executive Chamber of the Governor’s Office at the State Secretariat in Agodi, Ibadan.
Makinde stated that his administration was committed to focusing on infrastructure development in all state-owned public schools as well as continuing to invest in education by renovating public schools and distributing school furniture throughout the state.
He stated that the construction will be funded entirely by state funds.
Makinde declared that he had approved the payment of school grants to public schools in the state, emphasizing that his administration would continue to invest more money in the education sector.
He also said that constructive feedback that might help his administration would be welcomed at any time.
He encouraged education stakeholders to collaborate with the government rather than play politics with children’s futures.
He said, “We should all work together to ensure that the future is really secure and guaranteed.”
Mr Olasunkanmi Olaleye, the Commissioner for Education, Science, and Technology, had previously stated that in the year 2021, more than 2.7 million exercise books will be distributed free of charge to all public secondary schools in the state.
According to Olaleye, the free exercise books were distributed to students in order to promote education in the state.
