The governor recently gave the assurance in Benin City, during a thanksgiving service to mark the eight years completion of office and 75 years birthday anniversary of the former National President of the Pentecostal Fellowship of Nigeria, PFN, Rev. Felix Omobude.
According to him, he is super proud that a kid in primary one in Edo under the Edo Basic Education Sector Transformation (EdoBEST) programme after one term can now read fluently, unlike before when the standard was very low.
Obaseki added that he would be extending the achievements recorded in EdoBEST to technical and vocational education very soon.
His words, “We are proud that a child in primary one in Edo under the Edo Basic Education Sector Transformation (EdoBEST) programme after one term can now read. We will continue to invest in that transformation.”
“We are extending the achievements recorded in EdoBEST to technical and vocational education, but the foundation is what is critical. Without a solid foundation in education, nothing good can rest. We want to thank you for what you are doing for education in the church.”
“I did not realise that for the past 20 years you have been picking out little resources to train children who are not your own, to give them education and a chance in life.”
On security, “We are working very hard to ensure security in our zone. You know that we have a zone with a peculiar terrain, because of the farmers and herders’ crisis, but you know that we also have the issue of militancy and oil bunkering. We have a heightened security problem in the zone.”
“I was in Delta State last week where I met with Governor Ifeanyi Okowa. Security was part of what we discussed and there is going to be a meeting soon for further deliberation.”
