Governor Godwin Obaseki’s plan to renovate over 200 schools is well underway, as renovation work can be seen already in schools across the state. The renovation work is part of the overall vision of Governor Obaseki to reposition basic education for improved outcome, with the State Universal Basic Education Board (SUBEB) leading the charge. The government is committed to providing a conducive learning environment for pupils and teachers across the state.
In Edo North, renovation work is ongoing and this has made learning very easy for primary school pupils. In owan West Local Government Area, Ohia Iulehia Primary school is one of those schools currently undergoing renovation, the buildings of the school which was founded in 1955 has been in a decaying condition for a long time. It is difficult for teachers as well as pupils to teach/sit during the raining seasons because of the broken roofs and pothole ceilings in the classrooms. The renovation which is still at the beginning stages as displayed in the pictures above will go a long way to salvage the leaking roofs, broken ceilings as well as distraction after the completion of the project. The pupils and teachers are eager for the completion of the project so they can begin to enjoy the dividend of good governance and education.
