THE Mushin Local Government has distributed benches and desks for pupils in the 49 public primary schools in the area. In a statement, Mushin LG Information Officer, Mr. Olusegun Akinyemi, said the Executive Secretary of the LGA, Hon. Jide Bello was committed to solving the infrastructural and educational problems in the council by ensuring that no child in Mushin LGA sat on stones, windows or wood to listen to teachers instructions.
Bello said,”We are aware of the infrastructural needs and challenges of the schools and are determined to confront them. Apart from the benches and desks for the pupils, efforts are in top gear to provide furniture for the teachers. We know that productivity improves when pupils and teachers are in a conducive environment”.
He recalled the introduction of ‘The Shift Method’, which he said was necessitated by inadequate provision of infrastructure in public schools, adding that “the shift system is gone for good, all school pupils can now go to school at the same time and learn under a conducive atmosphere”.
He said 200 free JAMB forms were distributed to youths who had obtained the necessary prerequisite for admission into tertiary institutions. To qualify, the beneficiary must show evidence of obtaining five credits including Mathematics and English Language.
