The Germany chapter of the All Progressives Congress has presented 33,000 2D exercise books to State Universal Basic Education Board (SUBEB) in order to compliment government efforts at improving the standard of education in the state.
At the presentation ceremony in one of the schools at Isale Osun in Osogbo, Osun State, the Executive Chairman of SUBEB, Prince Felix Awofisayo thanked the Diaspora chapter for such laudable project of helping the younger generation and also enjoined the pupils to apply the largesse to good use.
In the same vein, the Senior Special Adviser to the Governor on Technical and Vocational Education, Dr. (Mrs) Moromoke Nimota Raji stressed the need to have such largesse to regularly support educational system and also thanked the chapter for supporting the pupils and their parents through the initiative.
On behalf of the APC Germany Chapter, Hon. Akerele Akintunde Hareef stressed that the rationale of the chapter for having such program was the need to empower pupils to learn and that learning cannot be possible without adequate material supplies to the pupils.
The presentation of the exercise book to the Chairman of SUBEB by the APC Germany Chapter represented by Hon. Akerele Hareef and Hon. Tunde Yisau closed the event and subsequently the exercise books were distributed to pupils of the nine schools present.
