Edo State Governor, Mr. Godwin Obaseki, has disclosed that he will give every kid in the state quality education and not do otherwise for the greed of any person blackmailing him to share the state’s little resources.
Godwin Obaseki disclosed this during a courtesy visit by members of the School-Based Management Committee (SBMC) from the 18 local government areas of the state, at Government House, in Benin City, Edo State.
He said his government is focusing on improving the education sector in the state.
His words, “Education is one of the biggest problems we need to address as a nation. The difference between developing and developed countries is education, knowledge, training and information.
“People say we have done well by constructing roads, developing the state, but it is the least we have achieved as a government. To build human beings is most critical and enduring. That is what SBMC is helping us to achieve in transforming the education sector.”
“I keep wondering how some people see the development made in the state as nothing and are only concerned about their selfish interest. I am not ready to drop any child under Edo-BEST to feed the greed of any person. Edo must work and change, as nobody is greater than the people.”
“Edo-BEST is working perfectly for us as parents and community representatives. The Social Mobilisation Office (SMO) has trained over 11,000 SBMC members in the state which has afforded the members the opportunity to collaborate with the government to ensure certain things are put right.”
