NGO Renovates School Building, sets to build to library
A non-governmental organization, Junior Chambers International has renovated 2 blocks of classrooms in Seventh Day Adventist Primary School, Ibadan, under the State Policy of Adopt-a-school project.
The President of JCI Oyo State Chapter,Mr. Sanmi Abiodun, revealed this today at the commissioning of the project. He also hinted that the Organisation is putting efforts together to build a modern library for the school.
Speaking at the event held, the Executive Chairman, Oyo State Universal Basic Education Board, Dr. Nureni Adeniran lauded the NGO for the initiative, which he said would go a long way to enhance the assimilation of the pupils.
According to the Executive Chairman, the efforts of the Organisation is commendable and should be emulated by all well-meaning Nigerians, as government alone cannot solve the accumulated problem in the Education sector.
He said JCI’s kind gesture came at a time the State Government is encouraging public private partnership, calling on individuals to invest in education needs in the State.
“The government of Engr. Seyi Makinde is doing a lot to redeem the education sector of the State. We have been doing more in construction and renovation of school buildings. However, kind hearted Organisations, as yours may support Government, for the sake of our children’s future”. There is no support that is too small”, he said.
