The Oyo State Governor, Engr. Seyi Makinde has commissioned an edifice of twenty classrooms in Baptist Secondary School, Isokun Oyo, town to commemorate his first hundred days in Office.
While Commissioning the Model Schools at the Oyo town, the Governor said his administration will continue to influence and implement good policies that will bring total transformation to the state.
“I want to assure you that our Government will continue to influence and implement good policies that will bring total transformation to the State while with the support of all, we shall record unprecedented achievements thus, leaving our footprints in the sand of time.”
He hinted that his administration will not relent in embarking on the projects that will provide conducive environment for the Students and enable them to explore both the natural and societal environments.
“It is worthy to mention that the present administration is not oblivious of the fact that childhood is filled with natural wonders and curiosity and that learning environment must reflect a classroom
and outdoor space that inspire a sense of wanting to investigate and explore, this was part of what necessitated the need to embark on a project like this which will enable our children explore both their natural and social environments.”
The Governor therefore charged all the stakeholders to partner with the Government in its bid to develop infrastructure in the public Schools and eradicate illiteracy in the state.
“We are appealing to all good spirited and well- meaning Nigerians to partner with the Government of the state in eradicating illiteracy and most especially in the area of infrastructural development in public schools.”
The Governor stated that his regime will continue to ensure quality and free basic education for all and sundry in the State.
“It is very important to reiterate the fact that the major responsibility of the Government is to ensure that quality and free basic education is provided for school-age children, as they are the
leaders of tomorrow.”
“It is also pertinent to remind everyone that an idle hand is a devil’s workshop which implies that if these children’s welfare is not considered, they may eventually turnout to become threats to the peace and security of our society.”
Earlier, the Chairman of Oyo State Universal Basic Education Board, Dr. Nureni Adeniran commended the Governor for resuscitating the ailing standard of education in the State by cancelling the three thousand Naira fees by the Students.
He charged the school Community, pupils, teachers, school based management committee and school’s governing board on the use and maintenance of the building and infrastructural facilities in the School.
He appreciated the Universal Basic Education Commission(UBEC) for providing the matching grants to Oyo State.
