Governor AbdulRahman AbdulRazaq of Kwara State on Thursday flagged off the distribution of free exercise books to primary and secondary school students in the state.

AbdulRazaq, who supervised the distribution of 932,572 free copies of customised exercise books to school children in the 16 local government areas of the state at the Ministry of Education, Ilorin, noted that only one percent of pupils in primary schools had writing material, while classrooms in public schools were overcrowded.

The governor also flagged off the rehabilitation of 31 public schools across the state, saying the gesture signalled the beginning of a new era in the education sub-sector in the state.

He said he had approved the payment of N30.5m as penalties imposed on some schools in Kwara for examination malpractices in the last secondary school leaving examination.

“The lack of conducive learning environment and longstanding failure to properly fund education can explain rampant incidents of examination malpractice. We are working to end this menace and return Kwara to the top of the table in the north central and beyond,” he said.

AbdulRazaq added that the state government would soon hold an education summit to discuss the challenges facing the sector and to evolve workable solutions.
