Diaspora group moves to adopt Ogun secondary school

A diaspora group in the United State of America (USA), Beyond Remittance, has met with the Ogun State Government over its plan to adopt Simawa High School in Sagamu Local Government Area.

 Simawa High School is one of the schools listed by the state government under its “Adopt A School” policy which encourages the organised private sector to support rehabilitation of primary and secondary schools in the state.  

According to the government, the school which was established in 1980, has 1,397 students and 12 classrooms.

The members of Beyond Remittance, led by Ms. Bukola Shonuga, met with the Commissioner for Education, Science and Technology, Prof Abayomi Arigbadu, to formally intimate the government on the plan to adopt Simiwa High School.

Ms Shonuga told Prof Arigbadu and the management of the ministry that Beyond Remittance had developed a detailed proposal on the adoption having carried out its independent research on the school and its needs.

Ms Shonuga, a New York-based journalist, said lack of access to government officials delayed the take-off of the group’s plan for the Simawa High School.

The commissioner promised the government’s readiness to support the diaspora group towards implementing its programmes for the school.
