Lagos State Government has restated its commitment to the development of education, especially adult education in the state.
The Chairman of the state House of Assembly Committee on Education, Wahab Alawiye-King, stated this at a workshop in Lagos.
The workshop, organised by the Lagos State Agency for Mass Literacy, Adult and Non-Formal Education, in conjunction with the National Mass Education Commission, UNESCO and the Millennium Development Goals Office, had in attendance no fewer than 111 participants. It was entitled ‘Revatilising adult and youth literacy in Lagos.’
According to Alawiye-King, education is the key to development of any society.
The lawmaker, who urged the participants to be selfless in their duties, noted that their contributions to the literacy scheme and economic development of the state were commendable.
