Monitoring Educational Projects: NGO Tells Media, Civil Society Organisation To Be More Proactive





Human Development Initiative (HDI), a Non Governmental Organization (NGO), has called on the Nigerian Media and Civil Society Organisation (CSO), to be more proactive in monitoring educational projects in Lagos state.


Speaking at a media and CSO round-table organized in Lagos by HDI on Monday, July 23, the Chief Executive Director of the organisation, Dr Funso Owasanoye, told the duo to be more critical stakeholders in monitoring educational projects in Lagos State in order for students to have conducive environment for learning.


According to him, this was the only way good and qualitative education could be achieved in Lagos.


While reviewing the reports of monitors on the 2016 Lagos SUBEB Action Plan Owasanoye noted that despite the interventions of the Universal Basic Education, (UBE), many schools in Lagos still have dilapidated structures while some have no basic education infrastructure at all.


She urged the Media to be an advocate of change by reporting any school in bad shape to the NGO through 08162155554 and other relevant stakeholders.


Analyzing the breakdown of fund given to state annually, an HDI Program Manager,  Mr Johnson Ibidapo hinted that two point zero eight billion Naira is released yearly to rehabilitate and furnish schools in Lagos.


Ibidapo urged Parents Associations, CSOs and the Media to be more proactive in keeping government on its toes to ensure that children who are the leaders of tomorrow get good foundational education.


Currently monitoring educational development projects in nine local council areas in Lagos, HDI is doing a tremendous job in ensuring that contractors execute projects awarded to them in places such as Mushin, Ibeju Lekki, Amuwo Odofin, Agege, Apapa, Surulere among other Local Government Areas.
