As part of ongoing efforts to rehabilitate infrastructure in Public Schools, the Lagos State government has approved the construction of new blocks of classrooms, hostels and watchtowers in 29 Lagos Public schools spread across the five divisions of the State.

The Chairman of the Special Committee for Rehabilitation of Public Schools (SCRPS) in Lagos State, Mr Hakeem Smith, who disclosed this during a strategic meeting held at Alausa, stressed that the projects will be executed under the Phase One Schools Rehabilitation Project exercise.

He revealed that Governor Sanwo-Olu has declared zero tolerance on the poor state of infrastructure in public schools and directed that all defective structures in schools be replaced with new classroom blocks.

Smith hinted that the present administration’s approach to revamping the public schools’ infrastructure is all-encompassing, saying “we are taking the issue of security seriously in our public schools that is why watchtowers, floodlights, security fences and panic alarm systems have been introduced as part of secondary school projects in order to keep the teachers and the pupils secured.”

The Chairman added that blocks of new hostels shall be provided in most of the model colleges to improve the quality of lives, expressing dissatisfaction at the poor state of the hostels which he described as inadequate and unacceptable.
