Governor Sanwo-Olu stated this while speaking at the Lagos State Model College, Igbokuta, Ikorodu axis, where he commissioned certain educational facilities.
As part of the government’s Corporate Social Responsibility to the society, the governor also guaranteed that when the Imota Rice Mill is fully operational in 2022, there will be provision of free rice to the school on a regular basis (CSR).
Sanwolu-Olu further urged the teachers to listen to their students so as to keep bullying at a minimal rate.
In his words: “Say no to bullying. If you see something say something, that is not snitching. Seniors stay away from the junior hostel if you have no genuine reason to be there.
“Our teachers should also listen to the pupils always, hear them out. When you listen to their little stories, they will tell you the big ones. We need to eradicate bullying to the barest minimum.”
