The attention of the Ogun State Universal Basic Education Board has been drawn to the story published on Tuesday, 16th February, 2021 by BBC News Pidgin Facebook Handle on the subject of non-conducive environment of Community Primary School, Ilupeju, Oja Odan in Yewa North Local Government.
Sequel to this, a team led by the Executive Chairman, Ogun SUBEB, Chief (Dr) Femi Majekodunmi in company of Special Adviser to the Governor on Primary and Secondary Education, Mrs. Ronke Soyombo and the Permanent Secretary, Ministry of Education, Science and Technology, Mrs Abosede Ogunleye visited the school to assess the infrastructure in anticipation to alleviate the current situation of the learning environment.
At the on-the-spot assessment, Dr. Majekodunmi disclosed that the Governor has mandated the Board to start the construction of a block of three classrooms with office and store immediately, and all necessary machinery has been put in place to provide other infrastructure like toilets, furniture, instructional materials etc.
It should be noted that the rot in some of the primary schools have been there before this administration came on board and Governor Dapo Abiodun should be commended for having executed over 900 projects in schools across the State within two years of his administration. This is indeed laudable and historical.
There are 230 ongoing projects, ranging from construction and rehabilitation of classrooms and toilets, provision of pupils and teacher’s furniture in the Ogun West Senatorial Districts. In the Neighborhood of Ilupeju, Oja Odan, there are ongoing projects in Community Primary School, Papa Olosun, Oke Odo, Yewa North Local Government School I, II, III and IV. All close to Community Primary School, Ilupeju, Oja Odan.
The effort of the State Government has been appreciated by the CDA Chairman, Chief Olayode Elijah and other Parents in the community for having the education as his front burner and the quick response toward the provision of infrastructural facilities in the School.
The Board is assuring the community of more infrastructural development and other school needs in the next intervention plan. Therefore, we urge all teachers and learners to adhere strictly to covid-19 guidelines, in order to curtail the further spread of the virus as normal academic session is expected to return.
