The Kogi State Government has assured that it would provide decent learning environment for its pupils and students to enable them compete favourably with their peers in other institutions of learning in the world.
Capt. Idris Wada the Kogi State Governor gave the assurance when he inspected the on-going renovation work at the Kabawa Primary and Secondary School, one of the school used to camp displaced persons during last year’s flood.
The State Governor who was represented by his Deputy, Yomi Awoniyi, said a good learning environment, that would bring out the best in the pupils and students in all public schools, remains the focus of the present administration.
The Governor disclosed that very soon, selected schools that would serve as models for what schools in the State should look like would be constructed using the Subsidy Re-investment Programme Funds.
Similarly, work he noted will commence in each Local Government Area general hospital across the State using the SURE-P funds, warned that the standards expected from contractors in the State is one that will not be compromised.
The State Governor disclosed that while indigenous contractors would be patronized by the present administration, quality in work execution, Wada explained, would serve as yardstick for the award of contract.
