Ogun State House of Assembly Majority Leader, Hon Barrister Yinka Mafe has disclose his readiness to launch a free school bus shuttle to convey pupils in his constituency.
In his words; “The Free School Bus initiative has become germane owing to the plight of pupils every school day, morning and afternoon and sometimes evening. This is coming at a time when it is quite necessary, and hence, everything has been put in place ahead of the next resumption. We will be starting with an Air Conditioned luxurious Bus that will convey pupils of any of our public schools. The route will basically be from Coca Cola Bus Stop through Remo Divisional High School, through Sabo and then all the way to Methodist Comprehensive and then up town to Remo Secondary School, back and forth, morning and afternoons. We hope to subsequently purchase more buses to ease the flexibility of the scheme. However, you have my assurance that there’s a lot more in the offing, one after the other, little by little we will cover as much as possible”.
Further explaining, he said;
“Thank God for the dualization of the Akarigbo Rd, that has created an uplift for Sagamu and created the room for such initiative. At different times we have been pupils and we have traversed every path, nook and cranny these young ones do traverse today and sincerely, personally I understand what most of them often go through. Hence we have carefully structured this scheme to assist them all”.
The ready to be launched Scheme is an addition to the ongoing Free WAEC, NECO, GCE Tutorials for ALL SS3 Students in Sagamu, Free ICT Training for All and Sundry in Sagamu and Inter-Secondary School Football Tournament (1st Asiwaju ‘Yinka Mafe REMO PRINCIPALS’ CUP) amongst others.
Asiwaju Mafe had earlier last year sponsored Eye Surgery for 250 beneficiaries (free), built an Ultra- Modern Town Hall in Emuren, built a block of four classrooms each in LG Primary School Sabo, Sagamu and St John Primary School Ogijo. Also, he reconstructed the Health Centres at Latawa Community and Idado Community in Aiyegbami, Offin. Over time, he has been sponsoring training and retraining Traditional Birth Attendants (TBAs) both in his constituency and Local Government, He also printed and distributed writing materials to all Public schools in Sagamu amongst so many others achievements and feats.
