Lagos State Governor, Mr. Akinwunmi Ambode, has earmarked over N1billion for renovation and supply of furnitures and education materials across all secondary schools in Lagos, he said on Friday.
The Governor, who reiterated the determination of his administration to invest massively in educational sector, said 1, 300 teachers from thousands of persons who applied last month will soon be employed to teach in the primary schools in the state.
Ambode spoke in Ilara-Epe while inaugurating Augustine University, a private university owned by the Catholic Church.
He assured of plans of his administration to resolve the lingering crisis in the Lagos State University (LASU).
He said the need to resolve the crisis in the institution prompted the inauguration of new Governing Councils for the institution and other tertiary institutions in the state.
