Director, Lagos State Comprehensive Schools Programme in the Ministry Basic Education, Lucy Emike Omoaka, has lauded the Lagos State government for its investment in basic education and improvement of school programmes.
Omoaka said that the state made a significant achievement to increase the number of educated persons in the state. She claimed that 85 per cent of pupils in Lagos schools are literate.
She said this during a programme to mark the 2023 International Literacy Day and donation of a leadership library to Ayedeere Ajibola Senior High School in Ikosi-Ketu, Lagos.
The library was donated by DOTHEDREAM and Life Development Leadership Centre, which organised programme to mark the day. The principal of the school, Alade Olajode said: “My message is that others should emulate. The government is doing its best, but the government cannot do it all. If others can collaborate with the government, we will go far.”
