Oyo State government has expressed its determination to focus on building infrastructures across public schools in the state and renovate dilapidated structures.
Governor Seyi Makinde stated this during a symbolic presentation of free exercise books to students of selected secondary schools in the state.
He urged stakeholders in the education sector to shun politics and complement government’s effort at ensuring a secured and guaranteed future for students in the state.
Governor Makinde noted that a portion of the school grant has been signed off for payment for effective running of public schools in the state with a promise that government would not relent in providing necessary funding to the state’s education sector.
Earlier, the Commissioner for Education, Science, and Technology, Mr. Olasunkanmi Olaleye said the gesture was part of the government’s free education policy noting that about 2.7 million exercise books would be freely distributed across schools.
