Enormous opportunities abound in this school infrastructure revamp programme. A total of N30 billion is projected to be spent under this programme. Aside from the unquantifiable benefits to the students and teachers, the commercial and socio-economic benefits to the State are unprecedented. Local content is being embedded in the project.
A great deal of local artisans such as bricklayers, iron benders, and labour are being engaged under the O-SCHOOL initiative. Materials are being sourced locally and a number of sand suppliers, wood suppliers and local contractors are also partaking in the programme.
In a similar vein, capacity building and enhancement training workshop was organised by the O-SCHOOL Committee for 300 painters with the aim of equipping and engaging them to provide standard services for the need of this laudable education project. Certificate of participation were also issued to the participants.
The aesthetic value the project is adding to the State cannot also be wished aside. Beautiful and standard structures are springing up all over the State.
