The Lagos State Government has expressed its readiness to build more schools in the state to encourage more enrolment of school-age children and promote education.

The Commissioner for Education, Folasade Adefisayo, said this during a meeting with the Chief Resilience Officer, Lagos State Resilience Office, Gbolahan Oki, and the Chairman, Itire/Ikate Local Council Development Area, Ahmed Apatira in Ikeja on the proposal for the establishment of Itire/Ikate Model College.

Adefisayo disclosed that special provisions had been made for additional schools in the state 2021 budget while existing school infrastructure would be upgraded.

She said, “Education remain a potent weapon with which the government can fight crime, ignorance, poverty and underdevelopment and the ongoing reforms embarked upon by this present administration would not only improve the state’s quality of education but encourage mass enrolment of pupils of school age.”

Adefisayo, however, promised to take the proposal for the Itire/Ikate Model College to the State Executive Council for consideration.

Oki, in his speech,  noted that after extensive stakeholder-engagements and due consideration, LASRO came up with a compact and comprehensive design that could accommodate junior and senior secondary model college to fit into the available space donated by the community.
