Worried by the repeated cases of kidnapping in schools in some parts of the country, the Ogun State Government says it has beefed up security in all its public schools.

Governor of the State, Prince Dapo Abiodun revealed this while receiving members of the House of Representatives Committee on Basic Education in Ogun.

The committee, led by its Chairman, Prof Julius Ihonvbere, was on a courtesy visit to Abiodun in Abeokuta.

Addressing the committee, Abiodun explained that he had approved the employment of security men in all schools.

The governor said this became necessary to avoid the abduction of students or their teachers.

“I have approved the employment of security men in all our schools. We do not want to be reactive on the issue of security in our schools. We want to ensure that not only our children are safe, but their teachers also”.

Saga Gist recalls that two students of the Olabisi Onabanjo University, Ayetoro campus in Yewa North were recently abducted by gunmen.

The Governor further promised to renovate about 600 schools before the end of his first term in office.

He also assured the provision of 60,000 furniture so that pupils can sit comfortably in their classrooms.

Meanwhile, the House of Representatives Committee Chairman said he and other members were in Ogun, as part of their oversight functions, to see what the state has done with the UBEC grants they received, to identify best practices and to see the lessons it could take to other states.

The committee commended Abiodun for paying its 2018, 2019 and 2020 counterpart funds, stating that Ogun still has about N2.7bn to access from UBEC.
