The Sole Administrator of Lekki Local Council Development Area (LCDA), Osunnuga Oloruntosin has appealed to Governor Akinwunmi Ambode to help with fencing of the newly built LG Primary School, Igbogun.
The school, a block of six classrooms, was opened for use last Thursday by Governor Ambode, who was represented by Dr Ganiu Shopeyin.
The fencing, Oloruntosin said, would prevent kidnappers from easy access to the school.
“As you can see that the school is closer to the lagoon, we need to prevent kidnappers who usually strike through the lagoon from easy access to our children, hence my appeal to our governor to assist with fencing of the school,” he said.
Oloruntosin also seeks the recruitment of teachers to the school from the state government to complement the non-pensionable teachers employed by the council.
The council chief also donated 200-capacity boat and life jackets to convey pupils from the riverine areas.
According to him, education is a necessity and an investment which everybody must embrace to bequeath a better legacy for the future leaders.
The council, he said, will soon distribute free uniforms and exercise books to all pupils in the council and payment of bursary to higher institution students.
He appealed to the residents to be patient with the council, saying no ward would be excluded from enjoying democratic dividends.
