From Stella Obi, Ibadan

A BIKE MAN, Adegoke Adejare has donated writing materials such as books, pencils, pens and erasers, worth thousands of naira to pupils of St. Paul’s Anglican School, Yanbule in Ibadan, Oyo State.

  Speaking during the donation on Monday, Executive Chairman, Oyo State Universal Basic Education Board,. Nureni Aderemi Adeniran said the board is full of thanks for his philanthropic act and kind consideration to complement government’s efforts.

  Dr. Adeniran, who expressed happiness over Adegoke’s gesture, said though the state government is poised to make life better for pupils through provision of basic amenities, it also welcomes philanthropic gestures from members of the public.

  He therefore called on key players in the education sector to support the Oyo State Government in its efforts at moving the education sector forward.

  The chairman promised that the state government will recognize Adegoke Adejare’s kind heartedness through a commendation letter.

  In his remarks Adegoke Adejare charged the pupils to always read their books and urged them to make use of the donated materials to enhance their studies.

  He said the donation was his little efforts at making his country a better place, by encouraging those who may be in need.

  Nicknamed ‘One Nigeria’, Adejare canvassed for Nigerians to collaborate with government in development of the education sector.

  “This is what I like to do. I never had the opportunity to attend a formal school, so I have vowed to do my best to support the government in developing the education sector, through little gestures such as this”, he said.

  Applauding Mr. Adegoke Adejare’s kindness towards the pupils, the Headmistress, St. Paul’s Anglican School 2, Yanbule, Mrs. Gbaroye Oluwatoyin said the gesture will encourage them, assuring that the books would be put into judicious use.
