Lagos, Ogun set up joint development commission


Shared values have made both Lagos and Ogun State governments to set up a joint border commission to oversee the management of the overflow of development from Lagos to Ogun.

Barring any last-minute hitches, the two state governors would put pen to paper as arrangements have been concluded to operationalize the joint commission before the year runs out.

This was disclosed on Thursday at the breakfast meeting of Nigeria/South Africa Chamber of Commerce held in Lagos.

Already both Governors Dapo Abiodun and Babajide Sanwo-Olu have been communicating with agencies of Government, Development partners and private sector operators on areas of infrastructural development, climate change and food security.

Both have also taken steps to closely monitor activities in the public schools through the introduction of the Education Delivery Unit.

Ogun State Governor, Prince Dapo Abiodun who stated this at a breakfast meeting, said the units would enable the government to know what was going on in the schools on a daily basis.

“We have introduced the Education Delivery Unit to closely monitor deliverables in our schools. We want to ensure that what needed to be done is done including keeping the school environment, toilets, and others clean at all times.

“We have seen that Edo State is making progress in primary education, we may adopt their model. We are giving identity numbers to our students and their teachers so to that we can know their whereabouts at any point in time. We have also introduced e-learning by giving instructional tablets to our students to ensure that uniform curriculum is taught in our schools”, he said.
