Edo State Governor, Godwin Obaseki, says his Government will sustain ongoing reforms in the State’s Education Sector.
He also promised to put in place the right infrastructure, manpower, and other incentives to achieve a quality, world-class educational system.
Governor Obaseki was speaking while inspecting additional 1.5 million books and other instructional materials procured to be distributed to schools across the three Senatorial Districts of the State.
“My Government is rethinking the Education Sector to equip young people in the state with the skills and knowledge required to survive the fourth industrial revolution,” he said.
He urged everyone to talk about it and let the world know about the changes in the Education Sector in Edo State.
“We thank you all for being part of the educational revolution in Edo State. Printing almost 2 million books and distributing them across the 18 local government areas of the state is a huge task.
“I urge you to make sure that the books are not trashed but used effectively. I trust Edo children to put the materials to best use and the society will be better for it and will reap the benefits of our education revolution in the State,” he expressed appreciation.
Chairman of SUBEB, Mrs. Ozavize Salami said the “free books, provided with the support of the World Bank will benefit 381,398 students across 1,330 State-owned Primary and Junior Secondary Schools.
