Special Adviser to the Lagos State Governor on Education, Mr. Obafela Bank- Olemoh, has urged stakeholders in the education sector to complement government efforts in the area of educational development by donating generously to promote development of human capacity and capability of reading through the use of technology.
Speaking at the commissioning of an e-library section donated by CODOMIL, a Non-Governmental Organisation (NGO) at Henry Carr Public Library in Agege, the Special Adviser described e-library as one powerful tool to encourage reading in this modern time.
The Special Adviser who was represented by the Director of the Lagos State Library Board, Mr. Tajudeen Lawal expressed government’s appreciation to the management of ZODMIL and urged other stakeholders to emulate the organisation by donating to other libraries and the education sector in view of its importance to human development.
The NGO is also partnering with the Lagos State Universal Basic Education Board (SUBEB) to execute some projects in Education Districts III and IV.
Aside from the e-library, other items donated by the organisation included 360 various books, shelves and four laptops.
Presently, the State has 12 functional public libraries spread across the 20 Local Governments and 37 Local Council Development Areas.
