Chairman of the Ekiti State Universal Basic Education Board, SUBEB Professor Femi Akinwumi has set September 30 as the deadline for the contractors handling the construction of the four public secondary schools recently established by the government to complete the projects.
He announced the deadline in Ado Ekiti during a meeting with the contractors.
Professor Akinwumi assured them that the board would continue to give necessary support towards ensuring the completion of the project as scheduled.
The SUBEB boss reiterated the commitment of the Fayemi-led administration to the provision of free qualitative basic education to all children of school age in the state.
He stated that the four new secondary schools would, upon completion, improve access of students living in the outskirts of the State capital to secondary education.
In his contribution, the new Permanent Secretary of SUBEB, Mr. Oluwadare Ajayi urged the contractors to note the observations made and adhere strictly to the directives of Governor Fayemi during his recent visit to the project sites.
Responding, representatives of the contractors pledged that they would deliver the projects before the deadline.
The contractors said that they had already commenced roofing, plastering, fixing of the doors, windows, electrification and plumbing works as well as the landscaping of the playground and environment of the new schools.
The newly established four secondary schools which are part of the Legacy Projects of the Fayemi-led Administration are named after elder statesmen and prominent citizens in the state.
The schools located in the state capital are the Ayo Fasanmi High School, Iworoko Road; David Oke High School, Ijan Road; the Banji Akintoye High School, Ikere Road and the Deji Fasuan High School, Afao Road.
