Ondo State Governor, Dr. Olusegun Mimiko yesterday stressed that the introduction of Mega Primary Schools Initiative by his administration was to breach the gap between the rich and the poor
 
The Governor noted that his administration made a concerted effort to break the traditional jinx of lopsidedness in access to qualitative education between the children of the rich and the poor, saying before his intervention, the children of the poor had to make do with the public schools, while the children of the rich received early education in cosy environment and as such creating a man – made disparity and discrimination.

“We took the bull by the horns, we came up with a creative and well thought – out idea of a long lasting and enduring legacy that could make a difference in design, structure and  in outlook. This marks the beginning of a new era, an era that puts both the rich and the poor together on a common platform”, he said

Apparently savouring the joy of the successful initiative, Mimiko said “this is our home – grown idea of a near perfect study and learning environment, we can beat our chest, that we are close to our destination, a destination that showcase an unprecedented educational development, using the basic education as our benchmark” 

The Governor who was speaking at the inauguration  of Caring Heart Mega Primary School, Fagbo, in Ondo East Local Government Area, as part of activities outlined for the  40th anniversary of the creation of Ondo State and the 7th year anniversary of his administration, due to be concluded this weekend said.
