Ondo State Commissioner for Education, Science and Technology, Mr Femi Agagu has assured parents and students that government will do everything possible to make schools’ environments conducive for learning and teaching this 2019/2020 session.

He gave the assurance while monitoring schools in Akure metropolis on resumption.

Agagu said the present government led by Governor Oluwarotimi Akeredolu has made education one of the five key areas of intervention, which is why it would ensure that  the sector succeeds.

He described education as the biggest industry in the state, hence the reason he is going round to see things first hand to be able to fashion out modalities geared towards making the new session a better one.

“We are going round to ensure that things are right and we will try to provide amenities that are needed within the limit of government’s resources.

“We have put in place a very robust inspectorate system to ensure that teachers do what they are paid to do,” he said.

While admonishing the students at the schools visited, Agagu commended them for coming to school early not minding that the day was the resumption day, charging them to be good students, study well and make good use of what they will be taught.

A student from St Thomas Anglican Grammar School, Akure, Olusola Isabella who said she had studied well during the holiday hoping to make the best in this session, called on government to come to their aid and renovate the dilapidated structures in their school which are life threatening.

According to her, “Actually we need more classrooms in our school, since the ones we have are no longer conducive for teaching and learning”.

Also from Celestial Church Grammar School,Akure, Oluwalana Emmanuel, who said his plan for the new session is to study hard and come out with flying colours also hoped that his teachers will work hard to bring out the best in the students.

He said” This session, I expect the government to improve on the standard of education by renovating our schools, as you can see, the rain has submerged some classrooms in the school thereby not allowing students to learn in those classes, we have to make do with the ones that were not touched which are few.”

The Principals of the Schools visited were very happy to receive the Commissioner; they solicited government’s assistance in giving the students a befitting and conducive environment for teaching and learning.

Some of the schools visited were, CAC Grammar School, St Thomas Anglican Grammar school, Celestial Church Grammar school among others.
