The state government of Ekiti announced that three new model colleges would be established.
While receiving a federal government visiting team in his office, professor Femi Akinwunmi, chairman of the state universal basic education board (SUBEB), disclosed in Ado-Ekiti.
The new model institutions, according to Akinwunmi, will accommodate the state’s significant rise in school enrollment.
They will be located at Ado-Ekiti, Ikere-Ekiti, and Odo-Oro in Ekiti State.
The commissioner also informed the visiting delegation that the government chose to create the model colleges in order to relieve overcrowding in secondary schools in and around Ado-Ekiti, as well as to provide new opportunities for urban growth.
As part of the project’s support measures, he listed security, a student-friendly and conducive learning environment with adequate water and sanitary facilities, as well as well-trained teachers.
Chemistry, Biology, Physics, ICT, and Home Economics laboratories will be available at the colleges, according to Akinwunmi. He stated that this project is in similarity with the four model colleges earlier established by the Gov. Kayode Feyemi-led administration.
