Lagos State Governor, Mr. Akinwunmi Ambode tuesday said his administration would stop at nothing to provide the best of education for every child at all levels in the state in line with its all-inclusive policy.
Ambode, who spoke simultaneously at the inauguration of several blocks of classrooms and school infrastructures across the state, said the government’s resolve to ensure qualitative education for children prompted the investment of resources towards the provision and upgrading of infrastructure, particularly at the primary school level.
“More importantly, the basic education level is a crucial stage because it is the foundation upon which all other levels are built. It is our desire therefore to ensure that this level of education is strengthened to enhance the future prospects of our children and their ability to cope with the challenges of higher levels of education,” the governor said.
Represented at the inauguration of newly constructed block of 13 classrooms with other educational facilities at Community Primary School, Oke Ishagun in Alimosho by the state Deputy Governor, Mrs. Oluranti Adebule, the governor said his administration would not deviate from its vision to develop a robust public education system that can compare with the best in the world, just as he restated his administration’s commitment to ensuring that the ongoing rehabilitation and construction of classrooms is extended to all public schools in the state irrespective of the area and location.
The governor thanked teachers in the state for their role in molding the lives of children, assuring them that their dedication to their growth and development will continue to be rewarded by his administration with improved welfare and working conditions.
“To our pupils, the future belongs to you if you listen to your teachers and your parents. You can achieve anything you put your mind to but you must work hard and pay attention. Read your books and focus on achieving your dreams and develop yourself daily,” he said.
Besides, Governor Ambode also charged people of the community as well as community leaders to guard the facilities jealously, adding that they must be properly maintained so that they can serve for a long time.
The governor, through his representatives also inaugurated the newly rehabilitated block of 32 classrooms with office and toilets, school hall among others.
