ABEOKUTA—Pupils of Radev Early Education Centre, Iberekodo, a school built for lepers’ children, have appealed to Governor Ibikunle Amosun of Ogun State for the provision of infrastructure and perimeter fencing of their school.

The school, located at the lepers’ colony, has 575 pupils from nursery to primary six.

Some of the pupils, who spoke with our correspondent shortly after 357 pupils received gifts of food stuffs donated by members of CSR Initiative of the Redeemed Christian Church of God, RCCG, Ogun Province 6, Agape Family, said the school has been neglected.

A primary six pupil, Saidat Balogun, who appreciated the gesture of the church, said though their school is special; the government should not make them feel discriminated.

The Headmaster of the school, Ayo Adelugba, said though the school was established for children of the lepers living in the colony, pupils in the neighbourhood are also benefiting from the programme.

While speaking on the challenges of the school, Adelugba said government has begun construction of some buildings in the school, saying the available classrooms were not conducive.
