The Governor of Ondo State, Olurotimi Akeredolu, has inaugurated a state-of-the-art digital resource centre at Owo High School, Owo, Ondo State.

According to a statement, the digital resource centre was donated by President and Managing Director, CBC Emea Group of Companies, Mr. Foluso Falaye, who is also an alumnus of Owo High School, and expected to improve the quality of education and learning delivery in the school.

The governor, who was represented by his deputy, Agboola Ajayi, thanked the donor of the centre, and individuals that contributed various awards towards achieving the vision of turning Owo High School into a centre of excellence.

He vowed that his administration would not relent in creating an enabling environment needed for moral and functional education in the state.

He stated, “I thank you for your desire to complement the efforts of the present administration. The state government believes that we must use technology, not just to educate our people, but also to create jobs. When the present administration was sworn in, we pledged that we were going to make sure we use technology to drive activities.

“As of today, we have established three state hubs in each of the three senatorial districts of Ondo State. One is at FUTA, Akure; another at Ondo State University of Technology; and the other at the State Polytechnic Owo. That is to tell you that this administration is doing a lot towards the development of technological education and empowering our people towards catching up with current trends in the world.

In the statement, the governor also announced a special arrangement between the NDDC and the Ondo State Government to introduce the use of tablets in all state primary and secondary schools, thereby eliminating the use of text books.

He stated that this was recently agreed with the Vice-President Yemi Osibajo, the NDDC and all stakeholders.

The statement said he praised the effort of Falaye, describing it as a challenge and wakeup call for all citizens especially those that had benefited from the public schools system.

“Government cannot do it all. We must as ex-students of different schools give back to the schools that we have benefited from,” he stated.

He promised to give a facelift to Owo High School, even as he stated that the access road leading to the school would be promptly attended to.

Earlier, Falaye had explained that the facility contained two learning areas each with sitting capacity of 100 students and two adjoining teacher preparatory rooms used by teachers/instructors to plan their lessons based on available contents on the digital platform.

He stated, “The facility has four bathrooms embedded and it is Internet ready with WiFi facility. A generator is provided to guarantee electricity while in use. Each learning area is provided with 89-inch Interactive Digital Board with full audio-visual facility and a computer notebook to drive delivery systems.”
