Ekiti Welcomes New Developmental Ideas.

Ekiti State Government has said it would be open to new ideas and plausible advice that will lead to greater development in the education sector.

The Deputy Governor, Dr. Kolapo Olusola disclosed this in his office during an assessment meeting with the World Bank State Education Program Investment Project (SEPIP) Coordinator, Dr. Tunde Adekola.

The Deputy Governor, who said that SEPIP had given the government the insight to see the need for parents’ participation in the development of education, promised to work on the advice given by SEPIP to re-position education in Ekiti State and restore its lost glory.

In his remark, Dr. Adekola commended the Ekiti State government for the various landmark achievements in the sector, noting that Ekiti State is at the fore front in activating the SEPIP projects at reforming the Education sector.

He advised the state government to increase the Core Subjects and Hard to Staff Schools Allowances to further motivate teachers while expressing the readiness of the World Bank to support Ekiti as long as it continued to execute the program within the laid down conditions of the World Bank.
