Ogun Starts Nomadic Education September0
Ogun State government says the two nomadic schools approved for the state by the federal government will begin full academic session by September this year.
Chairman of Ogun State Universal Education Board (SUBEB) Chief Muftau Ajibola made this known during a news conference in Abeokuta, saying the state was taking the commencement of the education for the wandering children of the Fulani/Hausa herdsmen reluctantly.
Ajibola, who was responding to Daily Trust questions on behalf of the state Commissioner for Education, Science and Technology, Barr. Segun Odubela, said the schools are located at Oke-Efon in Abeokuta South and Owode in Yewa South Local Government Areas of the State.
He explained that the projects had earlier been rejected by the state government due to its name and inadequate targeted populations in the State, but was later accepted after wide consultations.
Ajibola said the state was allocated three slots but was later increased to five because some states in the South West, including Lagos, could not get land for its location
