Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu of Lagos State at the weekend said his administration has so far completed over 1, 097 projects covering 970 schools across the state.
Sanwo-Olu disclosed this at the inauguration of new infrastructure projects at Oregun High School, Babs Fafunwa Millennium Senior Grammar School, and Babs Fafunwa Millennium Senior Secondary School, Ikeja, on Friday.
The governor, who was represented by his special adviser on housing, Toke Benson-Awoyinka, said the projects would accelerate students’ access to world-class learning.

“We have so far completed over 1, 097 projects covering 970 schools across the state. In the last two years, our government has ensured the prompt construction and rehabilitation of 322 dilapidated public schools, while 87,000 dual composite units of furniture were supplied to primary and secondary schools across the state,” he said.
The governor assured that his administration would stop at nothing in delivering infrastructure projects it promised to the people.
Sanwo-Olu said that the government’s investments in education had been yielding positive results with improved students’ performance in examinations, national and international competitions, as well as improved morals, etiquette and confidence in public speaking.
He said the inauguration of a new block of six classrooms and the renovation of two-storey buildings comprising 12 classrooms, two staff rooms, one library, laboratory and ICT centre Oregun Junior High School and others would go a long way to improve learning processes.
