The Senator representing Kwara South Senatorial District at the National Assembly, Oyelola Ashiru has reiterated commitment towards the development of Education in the district.
The Senator made the commitment during a routine check on schools in Oyun Local Government Area of Kwara State.
In the course of the tour, Senator Ashiru declared an emergency on academic infrastructure across Kwara South when he saw dilapidated buildings, non-functional laboratory and lack of mathematics and science teachers in most of the schools.
While a massive education project was planned across all local government area in Kwara South, the inconducive learning environment in Igbonna community where tables and chairs are not available prompted the Senator to finance the construction of two classrooms from his purse.
It is on record that Igbonna Government Day Secondary school is the only school in Igbonna ward which is attended by about 1,000 students from more than 16 villages. These villages includes Eleku, Agara, Keraja, Eleshinfunfun, Olomitoro amongst others.
During the tour, Senator Ashiru also visited Sulraj Secondary School Erin-Ile, Ira Grammar School, all in Oyun Local Government.
