Executive Chairman, Oyo State Universal Basic Education Board (UBEC) Dr. Nureni Adeniran has ordered the contractor handling abandoned building projects on the premises of St. Paul’s Anglican School 1&2, Yanbule, Bashorun, Ibadan, and Bamolaid Multi Business Services to return back to site with immediate effect.
Adeniran gave the order on Monday while inspecting school construction projects across Ibadan, the state capital.
Adeniran noted that pupils in primary schools, must be given necessary supports and morale that would endear them to their studies, one of which is having a good roof over their heads while studying.
He promised an immediate offset of backlog of arrears owed the contractor by the previous government, noting that the decongestion of the little space on the school premises is key.
The chairman expressed his dissatisfaction at the slow pace at which the project was executed, while expressing optimism that there would be a quick return to normalcy and prompt completion of the project before the incumbent administration’s 100 days in office.
In another development, the chairman also declared immediate distribution of instructional materials to schools across the 33 local government areas without further delay.
The instructional materials include science kits, Math sets, charts and other necessary education materials for Junior Secondary Schools.
