Ogun Fmr. Commissioner, Jide Ojuko Wants Dapo Abiodun To Fix Roads Leading To Schools In Ota
The immediate past Commissioner for Local Government and Chieftaincy Affairs in Ogun state and the Sobaloju of Ota, Hon. Chief Jide Ojuko has urged Ogun Governor, Prince Dapo Abiodun to fix roads leading to schools in Ota so as to ease learning and teaching in the state commercial capital.
Chief Jide Ojuko made this admonition while presenting Cheques to the Principals of Iganmode Grammar School, (Junior and Senior) in the school premises on Friday during a visit of the Old Students Association of the school.
Chief Ojuko, who is also the President of Old Students Association of Iganmode Grammar School, Ota, while commending the Schools’ Administrators and the Teachers for keeping the standard of the schools and maintaining high discipline despite obvious overpopulation with about twelve thousand students in both junior and senior schools, reiterated that, ‘adequate compensation and welfare package for Teachers in public schools will trigger total commitment towards scholastic achievement in schools’.
Responding while receiving the one hundred thousand Naira cheques each, the Principals of the senior school, Alhaji Salako, boasted that since his assumption as the Principal about two years ago, the school has won over twenty laurels in both academic and non academic competitions in national, state and local championships. He promised that the school will work hard to bring back the record of being the only public schools with three wins in the National Cowbell Mathematics Competition in time past.
In the same vein, Principal of the junior school, Chief Mrs Olukemi Adeogun, who’s also an old student, thanked the association for encouraging the teachers. She appealed to both old students and government to pay additional attention to the Junior schools as the foundation for performance in the Senior and Tertiary Institution.
The delegation of Old Students was led by the President, Chief Jide Ojuko, National Secretary, Mrs Sodiya, Social Welfare, Alhaji Lateef Deinde, Mr Oguntoyinbo, Assistant National Secretary and the Publicity Secretary, Rotarian Kayode Taiwo.
