Ondo State Government has enjoined public servants especially teachers in Basic Education sector to explore alternative credible sources of income to meet the increasing daily needs of the modern society.

The Chairman Ondo State Universal Basic Education Board (SUBEB), Rt. Hon Victor Olabimtan, gave the advice while commissioning a new block of 3 classrooms, an office and 2units toilet at A.U.D Grammar school, Akungba Akoko.

Olabimtan, who charged the teachers to be good ambassadors of the noble teaching profession, enjoined them to be industrious by adding another stream of income in order to live a good life, especially after leaving the public service.

Speaking on the essence of the School Based Management Project, Ondo SUBEB boss said it is a special intervention fund from UBEC directly to some selected schools to ensure the school and Community ownership of the projects, adding that this will ensure the sustainability of the project since the immediate stakeholders were involved in the construction.

While commending the SMBC of AUD Grammar School Akungba for a job well done, the former Speaker of the State Assembly promised that SUBEB had concluded plans to award a contract of an additional block of three classrooms for the school, adding that community, the teachers and the students must take adequate care of the facilities.

He added the SBMC of AUD had done a good job, saying “For the avoidance of doubt, only 5 Million Naira was provided for the job by UBEC but the SBMC delivered a project of 10 Million Naira no wonder they came first in the assessment out of the 31 projects undertaken by SMBC in the State in the year under review”

Earlier, the School Principal, Mr Azeez thanked the UBEC and SUBEB management for making the school one of the beneficiaries of the SBMC Project in the State.

Considering the performance of the AUD Grammar School SMBC in the scheme of things especially in the area of prudent management of fund allocated and delivery of quality job, the Principal appealed for more projects from UBEC and SUBEB in their next consideration.
