Fayemi approves reading, learning clubs for secondary schools in Ekiti
Fayemi said he had given approval for the formation of the Ekiti State Spelling, Reading and Learning Club (EKSRAL-CLUB) in all the secondary schools of the state.
Senior Special Assistant, Student’s Matters to the Governor, Mr. Olalekan Soyombo, who confirmed this in a statement, yesterday, in Ado-Ekiti, noted that the step was part of the governor’s quest to promote literacy and increase knowledge among Ekiti State students.
He said: “The Ekiti State Government noticed with deep concern the seemingly unending decline in the reading culture among the students and their disposition to many of the unimportant social ventures, which have in return affected the students’ critical thinking, hence, the introduction of EKSRAL-CLUB to the students as a way to go.
“The ultimate agenda of this initiative is to build the enclave of knowledge, wisdom and productive ideas in the students through consistent reading and learning.”
He said that the various clubs would be inaugurated on April 23, 2021 to commemorate this year’s World Book Day.
According to Soyombo, Fayemi, who doubles as the President of the Club, would be joined by the Commissioner for Education, Science and Technology and many prominent individuals to officially launch the club and donate books for free to students in the state.
