Ekiti State government is set to fence 19 public secondary schools as part of efforts to curb insecurity in the state.

Wife of the Ekiti State governor, Dr Yemi Oyebanji, dropped the hint in Ado-Ekiti during a meeting tagged, “A day out with principals and teachers of public secondary schools.”

Oyebanji said the initiative was being undertaken under the Adolescent Girls Initiative Learning and Empowerment (AGILE) intervention to improve security in the schools.

She called on teachers to be agents of change by creating a safe and violence-free learning environment where boys and girls would have equal opportunities to learn.

In her welcome address, the Special Adviser to the Governor on Education Science and Technology, Dr Kofoworola  Aderiye, emphasised that principals and teachers were the agents set aside to carry out the programs and projects of AGILE in their various schools.

Earlier, the state Coordinator of AGILE, Mrs Yemisi Alokan, said the initiative was committed to the needs of the younger generation, creative thinkers, problem-solvers, and critical thinkers to prepare them for the future.
