Abeokuta, Ogun State – As part of our commitment to the well-being and future prosperity of our constituents, we are pleased to announce the Education Support Interventions Plan for Yewa North/Imeko Afon Federal Constituency.

This initiative is an integral component of the 15-year development plan for the Federal Constituency, initiated by Prince Gboyega Nasir Isiaka (GNI), Member, House of Representatives. We acknowledge that quality education is a fundamental right, and it’s our responsibility to ensure its  enhancement in our constituency.

After conducting extensive consultations with key stakeholders in the State’s education sector including Professor Abayomi Arigbabu, the State Commissioner for Education, Science and Technology, school principals, and administrators, we have identified 5 areas where we can immediately complement the government objectives of developing a purposeful, inclusive and engaging education system in the State.

These are;

We recognize the importance of qualified teachers in shaping young minds. To reinforce the state government’s efforts, we will engage at least 40 additional “PTA teachers” in two core subjects of English Language and Mathematics to be deployed into the Secondary Schools in the Constituency from the beginning of third term in April. The number of teachers and subjects covered will significantly increase from the next academic session in September 2024. Recruitment details will be announced shortly. Additionally, we will collaborate with the parents and other stakeholders at different locations to provide various forms of support, such as temporary accommodation, to newly posted  teachers and NYSC members posted to schools within the constituency.

In addition to the State Government’s initiatives, such as the Yellow Roof Revolution and various other initiatives of National and State Assembly members,  we will implement a number of  school infrastructure development programs already included in the National Budget during the course of the year. Our priority remains exposing students to modern technology by providing ICT facilities.

The MHR’s scholarship programs and financial aids for students will persist on a case-by-case basis, with the potential for expansion where feasible. Assistance to potential candidates to obtain JAMB forms  which is currently ongoing will be sustained alongside organizing extramural classes for students preparing for School Certificate and JAMB examinations.

We acknowledge the paramount importance of technical education and vocational skills in equipping our youth for contemporary and future job markets thus  a bill has been championed by the MHR to establish a Technical and Skills Acquisition Center within the Constituency.

Additionally, discussions are ongoing with the State Ministry of Education as regards to this while the MHR continues to seek relevant vocational training for constituents. Few of those recently facilitated are Mindivers Project of School of Mines and Steel, Abuja and Leather Works Training for 10 constituents at a top class Leather Work Company in Isolo, Lagos. We expect more of  such opportunities in the coming months.

Recognizing that holistic development encompasses not only academic prowess but also moral values, ethical grounding, character refinement, counselling, career aspirations and trajectories, an initiative has been devised to foster engagements between students and esteemed role models from diverse spheres. These interactions which should debut in the month of March 2024 seek to instill confidence, nurture passion, fortify values, and instigate a sense of responsibility among our youth, thereby paving the way for a promising future.

Over and above, the implementation of these programs exemplifies our commitment to a wholesome and development-focused representation of the federal constituency.

Our students deserve society’s greatest support to help them achieve their goals and GNI is fully committed to contributing this.

For further inquiries or information regarding this initiative, please do not hesitate to reach out to our office.
