Kwara state government says it will establish an education trust fund to mobilise resources for school infrastructure, to ensure adequate provision of affordable and qualitative education in the state.
Governor AbdulRahman AbdulRazaq stated this at the inauguration of a multimillion naira information communication technology (ICT) centre and a central administrative block donated to the Ansaru-ud-Deen College Ijagbo in Oyun local government of the state.
Governor AbdulRazaq said his administration seeks sustainable partnership with private sector, philanthropists and corporations to fund school infrastructure to boost manpower development in the state.
According to him the administration recognises the limitations of government to shoulder the burden of infrastructural development in all local government areas of the state.
The Governor explained that the State Education Trust Fund Bill sent to the House of Assembly when passed into law will ensure contributions into schools.
He urged wealthy individuals to improve infrastructure in their communities for socio-economic development.
