The Lagos State Government has tasked students across the various schools in the State to pursue greatness, exhibit creativity and continue to maximise the use of digital learning towards surpassing the successes recorded in previous examinations.

The Commissioner for Education, Mrs. Folasade Adefisayo gave the charge during the monitoring and compliance exercise on school resumption for the second term across the metropolis, stressing that the State Government had embarked on more than 1,400 initiatives in the education sector since assuming office in 2019.

Adefisayo listed some of the landmark projects carried out by the State Government including the provision of 1,047 new classrooms, construction of new schools and rehabilitation of 197 existing ones, construction of 1,584-bed new hostels in boarding schools, provision of 181, 365, pieces of school furniture, commissioning of new school models with track and field facilities.

“Commissioning of the new technology-driven modular school at Vetland model junior secondary school, the launch of the ‘Eko Excel’ digital learning initiative, retraining of teachers and the introduction of the inclusive comprehensive school programmes for skills acquisition among others”, she added.

The Commissioner, who was represented by the Permanent Secretary of the Ministry, Mr. Abayomi Abolaji, admonished the students to remain diligent in both academics and otherwise while shunning hooliganism and cultism.

A major highlight of the monitoring exercise was the interactive sessions where the Commissioner counselled the students, including special needs students, just as she encouraged the teachers not to rest on their oars but to work hard to continue to guide the students appropriately.

The Monitoring Team visited about 30 schools in Surulere, Gbagada, Somolu, Ojodu, Kosofe, Alimosho, Igbogbo, Ikorodu and Badagry during the exercise.
