Edo State Government through the Edo State Universal Basic Education Board (SUBEB), recently embarked on a massive rehabilitation of schools across the 18 local government areas of the State. About 234 schools have been captured in the rehabilitation exercise with 36 new buildings constructed from the scratch while others have undergone or are undergoing various forms of renovation. About 2,227 classrooms have so far been renovated, with 2,552 steel doors and 7,669 steel windows installed. About 94,064 square metre new roofs and 80,637 square metre floor tiles have been fixed. So far, over 2,163 white boards have been installed in public primary schools across the state.
Usogun Primary School, Auchi, used to be characterized by dank and derelict structures until it was worn a new look by the current rehabilitation of schools. Today, the school has become a signature of all eyes. Also affected by the transformation drive of the Governor Godwin Obaseki administration, is Akho Primary School, Irrua, in Esan Central LGA, which has been totally transformed with impressive structures and infrastructures. Ivbiotor Primary School in Ikpoba Okha LGA, has also experienced a facelift with the current construction and renovation of public primary schools across the 192 wards in the State.
These schools are also refurbished with good playgrounds and play facilities, toilet facilities and boreholes to provide pupils with the requisite comfort. Perimeter fences have also been erected to ensure adequate security. The pupils are happy to come school, parents and guardians are delighted over the quality of education being offered their children/wards, and the teachers have once again taken pride in their teaching profession.
More public schools have been earmarked for construction and renovation in the schools’ rehabilitation exercise by the State Government under the leadership of Governor Godwin Obaseki.
