Kwara Government has commenced the construction of a bilingual secondary school in Share community, where students will be properly taught English and Arabic languages.

The project, which is estimated to cost about N1billion, was brought to the state through a robust partnership among three parties.

The parties are the Kwara Government, through the state Universal Basic Education Board (SUBEB), the Islamic Development Bank (IDB) and the Kwara House of Assembly through the member representing Share/Oke-ode constituency, Mr Owolabi Rasaq.

Speaking at the groundbreaking ceremony in Share, Rasaq said it took them at least six months to secure the school contract for the state.

He acknowledged that the state government, through SUBEB, played an excellent role to achieve the desired result.

He applauded Gov. AbdulRahman AbdulRazaq for his various supports at all times, and for leading by example.

While pledging his unrelenting effort to make sure that the project was delivered according to specifications, the lawmaker urged the contractor to engage the community in their operations.
