Schools Rehabilitation: Somolu Residents Commend LG Boss


Some public schools in Somolu Local Government Area of Lagos State, South West  Nigeria, have been observed to be wearing new look.

A recent tour of the local government by P.M. News revealed that most of the primary  schools in the area have been rehabilitated while some are undergoing  rehabilitation.

Some residents of the area that spoke with P.M. News on the development commended  the council chairman, Mr. Gbolahan Bagostowe, for the good gesture, saying the  schools were such in deplorable state before their rehabilitation and are now  conducive for leaning.

According to Taiwo Adeolu, one of the resident, “before the coming in of the council  chairman, schools’ structures were in bad state and pupils learnt under harsh  conditions. At times, when it rained, they would have to be taken elsewhere because  roofs of some of the classrooms are leaking, while some lack lockers and benches for  the pupils to sit and write. But now, the story has changed.

“Bagostowe has reconstructed some of the buildings and equipped them with furniture  and pupils can now learn in a conducive environment as against what it used to be in  the past.”
