Speaking at the ceremony, which held at Omole Senior Secondary School, Omole, Ikeja, the General Manager of the Agency, Dr Abiodun Afolabi, said the exercise is another significant effort that affirms the commitment of the present administration to reform the Education and Environment sectors in line with the T.H.E.M.E.S Agenda.
