The government added that the funds running into billions of naira were also used to procure and supply 267 sets of Early Childhood Care Development and Education plastic furniture.
The Executive Chairman, of Ogun State Universal Basic Education Board, Dr Femi Majekodunmi, disclosed this in Abeokuta.
Majekodunmi said the projects were done towards creating a conducive learning environment for teaching and learning in Ogun State.
He highlighted the achievements of SUBEB which include the procurement of eight project vehicles, construction of hostels and toilet facilities, erection of fences for staff quarters, and equipping of an e-library across the 20 Local Government Areas, among others.
He also said that 76 ultra-modern toilet facilities with boreholes across public primary schools in the State were ongoing under the year 2015 – 2018 UBEC Special Needs Projects, to enhance service delivery.
He added, “The Dapo Abiodun led-administration has procured and supplied 267 Sets of ECCDE Plastic Furniture, 8,800 two-seater desks and benches, 3,900 two-seater desks and benches for Junior Secondary Schools’ students, as well as 2,395 teachers’ furniture for both public primary and Junior Secondary Schools.
“Before the present administration came on board, the infrastructural facilities in many of the public schools were dilapidated, pupils and teachers’ furniture were virtually not available, and this necessitated the construction and rehabilitation of over 1,474 classrooms to improve the standard of education in both public primary and junior secondary schools in the State.’’
