Speaking during a ceremony to present cheques to representatives of beneficiary schools, Governor Seyi Makinde emphasized that the grant is targeted at critical public primary schools across the state’s three senatorial districts.

He urged those responsible for the renovation project to ensure that all works are done to a high standard, as he believes that quality is essential to making the projects successful.

The governor also cautioned that a significant amount of money is being invested in the project, and therefore, beneficiaries must ensure that their schools are improved in accordance with prescribed standards.

According to Special Adviser to the Governor on Education Intervention, Suraj Tiamiyu, the renovation project will include the construction of toilets, boreholes drilling, and other facilities that will enhance the learning environment for pupils.
