LG Primary School, Imota Needs Urgent Govt. Attention
Story & pictures by Kunle Adelabu
The effort of successive government in Lagos State in repositioning the education system since the advent of this republic in 1999 is quite commendable especially the new government of Mr Akinwunmi Ambode but more still needs to be done.
THE IMPACT took these pictures of Local Government Primary School, along Imota/Igbokuta Road, which is incidentally along the same road with the Imota LCDA Secretariat but it is very unfortunate that the Executive Secretary, Otunba Ademuyiwa who plies this road everyday do not deem it fit to show concern for the pupils who are the future of Imota.
The structure in which the pupils are receiving lessons which is said to be a World Bank Assisted Project is not fit to keep animals. The structure is archaic and virtually the entire roof has been blown-off.
Though another dilapidated structure has been abandoned, THE IMPACT photo can see some students inside it. The question is what is a collapsing structure still doing in the compound that is meant to harbor young children? Structures like these should be pulled down to prevent sad occurrence.
Although, there is a new structure in the school, the compound is still without fence which allows residents to pass through the school premises without any hindrance.
Also in need of urgent attention is the Farm Settlement Primary School, Imota. the school share similar fate with LG Primary School and its condition threatens the future of young school children in Imota.
The school which is situated on the other left side of the Ikorodu-Itoikin Express Road side of Imota is also without fence.
The Imota LCDA and Lagos State Government should as a matter of urgency spare a thought for the pupils of Local Government and Farm Settlement Primary Schools, Imota before a disaster occur.
Since government cannot do everything, the community is also expecting the United Bank for Africa (UBA) whicg has a branch beside the school to also intervene through Community Social Responsibility (CSR) in the interest of the pupils.
