Abiodun Assures FG Of Basic Education Funding, Others In Ogun


Governor Dapo Abiodun has assured the Federal Government of complementing its effort at improving basic education funding through maintenance and rehabilitation of pubic schools’ infrastructure across Ogun  State.

Governor Abiodun gave the assurance in his office at Oke Mosan, Abeokuta, when he received the Minister of State for Education, Rt. Hon. Goodluck Opiah, saying his administration would soon lunch a special committee on the rehabilitation of schools.

The Governor noted that the State had introduced Ogun State Education Management Information System and the Learners’ Identification Number to address the challenges of out-of-school children in the State, adding that recruitment of 5000 teachers under the Ogun Teach Programme had enhanced the teacher-student ratio.

“We are about to launch our education trust fund that will allow us to begin to intervene in addition to what State Universal Basic Education Board (SUBEB) is doing. Education is the future of any country and certainly, in Ogun State, we want to be proactive in dealing with this situation, for every child who is of school age, we must ensure that they stay in school”.

Earlier in his remarks, Right Honourable Opiah said his team was in the State on an advocacy tour on issues of out-of-school children, saying it was a serious issue which should be addressed headlong.

The Minister stated that the Ministry was aware of the effort of the State government in providing a conducive environment for teaching and learning, adding that it would not hesitate to exchange ideas on ways of putting an end to out-of-school children in the country.
