Uyo—Akwa Ibom State Government has concluded arrangements to embark on  300 projects in public schools across the 31 local government areas of the state.

Commissioner for Education, Mr. Aniekan Akpan, who disclosed this during an interaction with newsmen, weekend in Uyo, listed some of the projects to be embarked upon to include construction and renovation of school buildings, provision of  desks, perimeter fencing and boreholes.

Akpan explained that the current effort would address the problem of dilapidated infrastructure in schools which the state has been facing, noting that priority attention would be accorded public primary and junior secondary schools found in very poor state during the selection process.

He stressed that Governor Udom Emmanuel’s administration has remained committed to the free, quality and compulsory education programme despite the dwindling revenue accruing to the state.
