Edo Govt set to commence refurbishment of public schools

Edo State Governor, Mr. Godwin Obaseki, has disclosed his administration’s resolve to commence refurbishment of public schools in the state, urging for support and cooperation of the School-Based Management Committees.

He disclosed this during training for School-Based Management Committee of Emotan Primary School in Benin City, Edo State, on Thursday.

Obaseki said that government will work in agreement with the committee, communities and other relevant stakeholders on the refurbishment of schools, noting, “President Muhammadu Buhari through the Universal Basic Education Commission (UBEC) has provided enough fund to embark on this purpose. Massive revamp will commence in the state soon.”

The governor said the School-Based Management Committees will include members of the communities, parents and stakeholders in the governance and administration of schools across the state, as they will act as catalysts for progress.

He added that his administration has decided to revamp the state’s basic education system, noting, “If I achieved nothing as governor of Edo State, I want it to be on record that I came and turned around the basic education system in Edo State for good.”

He continued, “the Edo Basic Education Sector Transformation (Edo-BEST) programme was introduced to enable us go back to the foundation which must be solid as this will enable our children to face the challenges ahead.

What is taught in the first six to nine years of education will certainly affect the child, as it will become difficult to cope with the challenges of life if they get it wrong at that level.”
