Akwa Ibom State Government has reiterated its commitment to ensuring qualitative education at all levels in the State, particularly the continued upgrade of infrastructure and facilities in public schools.
While decrying the spate of conspiracy and blackmail against the State government on the state of educational infrastructure, the Commissioner for Information and Communications, Aniekan Umanah, disclosed that about 2,500 blocks of classrooms have so far been constructed and rehabilitated in about 1,162 primary schools and 244 secondary and technical schools across the State.
According to him, the intervention of the state government in public schools also include perimeter fencing of schools in high traffic areas, provision of laboratory equipment, school desks, workshops and supply of teaching aids and materials.
Observing that though primary schools are direct responsibilities of the federal government, through the Universal Basic Education, he assured that the State government will promptly address the situation in any identified school, in line with the infrastructure consolidation programme of the Governor Udom Emmanuel administration.
