The Commissioner for Education, Science and Technology, Prof. Abayomi Arigbabu who was represented by the Permanent Secretary in the Ministry, Abosede Ogunleye, who spoke during the commissioning and handing-over of the project said the present administration was committed to the provision of quality education, as well as incentives to encourage students to do better through rewards for excellence.
Ogunleye added that the ministry was working towards reducing number of learners in a classroom, to further promote better education standard which the State is known for, noting that the signing of undertaking form had restored peace to schools and encouraged teachers and learners alike to put in their best.
“If you check what we have in the Junior Secondary Schools of our flagship public schools, you will discover that they are not more than 60 in a classroom, this is part of what we are doing to tackle the issue of crowdness, so as to further promote good and qualitative education”.
Also speaking, the Principal of African Church Grammar School (Afrograms), Ita-Iyalode, Abeokuta, Pastor Olusola Elegbede appreciated the Club for the donation, saying it would further enhance conducive atmosphere for teaching and learning.
