Governor AbdulRahman AbdulRazaq of Kwara State has disclosed that his administration is set to institute an education trust fund to garner resources for school infrastructure and make education affordable and qualitative.

This was contained in a statement issued by the Chief Press Secretary to the Governor, Rafiu Ajakaye, in a statement titled, ‘Why we’re setting up Kwara Education Trust Fund: AbdulRazaq’.

Governor AbdulRazaq while attending the inauguration of a multimillion naira information communication technology centre and a central administrative block donated to the Ansaru-ud-Deen College Ijagbo by Prince Lateef Fagbemi (SAN) revealed plans to establish the fund.

“Our administration recognises the limitations of government to shoulder the burden of infrastructural development in all local government areas of the state. That is why we have sent Kwara State Education Trust Fund Bill to the House of Assembly. When passed into law, it will ensure contributions into schools,” the statement quoted AbdulRazaq as saying.

He added, “The law will empower the state government to partner with philanthropists, foundations and corporate bodies to raise money and help support strengthening educational infrastructure in the state.”

The Governor equally recognized the contribution of Fagbemi to the college, saying the gesture represents a major boost for human capital development in Kwara State.

“Let me commend Lateef Fagbemi’s effort in this community. This is a huge development. What else can you give to your community better than solid education? We are very grateful for this. You are not just the pride of the community, you’re an ambassador of the state. We appreciate your efforts,” AbdulRazaq said.
