Lagos State Governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, over the weekend, affirmed his commitment to Lagos residents with plans to transform the education sector.
Sanwo-Olu urged all the head teachers in the 20 local governments and 37 council development areas to do more optimally, promising to present the best of them with car gifts.
The governor made the statement during the launch of EKOEXCEL, a teachers’ professional development and training programme, which held at De Blue Roof, Lagos Television (LTV), Agidingbi, Alausa, Lagos.
“I am particularly happy that this programme is holding at a time when all hands are on deck to ensure that the quality of teaching and learning is improved across our schools.
“We will identify the best head teachers in the 20 local governments and 37 local council development areas and reward them with a car each.
“We have resolved to address these problems through combining innovative technological approach that is scientifically based, with effective training and empowering our teachers in every local government to strengthen their capacity and deliver quality education to our children,” Sanwo-Olu stated.
