Makinde to open six model schools

To commemorate his first 100 days in office, Oyo State Governor Seyi Makinde will inaugurate six model schools executed under the Universal Basic Education Commission (UBEC) and the state Universal Basic Education Board (SUBEB) intervention projects across the three senatorial districts of the state.

Making the disclosures, Oyo SUBEB Chairman, Dr Nureni Adeniran, said the move was part of the government’s efforts to provide quality education to indigent pupils in the state.

“The board has ensured that the contractors complete at least six of the ongoing projects, which are ready for commissioning by His Excellency,” he said.

The model schools, equipped with modern facilities are located in Ibadan, Oyo and Oke-Ogun region of the state.

The facilities in the schools include classrooms, sickbays, science laboratories, computer rooms, libraries and halls.
