Following his earlier statement on the dilapidated Apata Kajola LGEA school in Irepodun LGA at a stakeholder's meeting in Omu-Aran, Rep Tunji Ajuloopin, member, representing Ekiti/Isin/Irepodun/Oke-Ero Federal Constituency, on Tuesday paid an on-the-spot assessment visit to the school.

Ajuloopin who was accompanied on the visit by his constituency team and supported by Elder Oyin Zubair and Alhaji Waheed Niyi Sanusi promised to make the school conducive for teaching and learning.

"My attention was just drawn to the dilapidated state of the school and the challenges it posed for the people of the community.

"We are going to ensure the renovation of the school and look for ways of getting teachers for quality teaching and learning to take place," he said.

The lawmaker called on the people of the community to continue to exercise patience and be supportive of government programmes with prayers, saying that the promised dividend of democracy would be a thing of reality in the community.

Earlier, Mr. Rasheed Aweda, a representative of the community, while briefing the team, said the school had stopped functioning since four years ago.

According to him, the pupils have to trek for more than 2km from the community to the nearest town in Igbaja to get Western education.

"There's lack of teachers in the school, sometimes, some of the villagers will voluntarily take the pupils back from Igbaja after school with their private vehicles," he said.
