Lagos, July 17, 2021(NAN) The Parents/Teachers Association (PTA) of Federal Science and Technical College Yaba, Lagos, has called on Federal Government to improve the existing infrastructure in the school.

The newly elected chairman of the PTA, Dr. Emmanuel Onyenuche, made the call in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on Saturday in Lagos.

Onyenuche said that there was the need for constant upgrade of facilities in the college in view of its large student population to cope with 21st-century demands.

”We know that being a Unity School, the Federal Government has been doing its best in improving a standard, in the face of other things jostling for its attention.

”So, this calls for more intervention in the area of infrastructure, so that both the staff and students would give their best,” he stated.

The PTA chairman noted that the association had already mapped out short and long-term intervention plans for the benefit of students of the college.

According to him, there are plans for free medical outreach, not just for the students alone, but the parents and the college community at large.

”We are just settling down and we are also soliciting the support of other stakeholders to ensure that we connect well with the school management and the parents and even the ministry.

”Now, as a medical practitioner myself, we want to see how we can improve on the healthcare of the students.

”To this end, therefore, our clinic needs to be optimal. We need it to function well and this, for us, is a task that must be carried out within the first 100 days in office.

”We are also looking at incorporating medical outreach for our parents and this we plan to achieve whenever they come around for the regular PTA meetings.

”Let me also assure you that the school community will also experience this outreach from time to time,” the chairman said.

Onyenuche further stated that the association under his watch would also work on bridging the communication gap between the parents and the college.

Onyenuche stated that his administration was poised to put in place a more acceptable channel of communication that would ensure that all the parents were carried along adequately.

He also stated that plans were on to celebrate teachers of the college through improved welfare, noting that this, if achieved, would enhance maximum productivity.

”There is the need to motivate the teachers so that they can give their best. We should be able to celebrate them, especially on Teachers’ Day.

If we have our way, we could celebrate them every day, because they deserve it.

”We also have a culture which is that of cleanliness. We want to ensure that our students are conscious of their environment at all times, sensitizing them to always pick litters around them, without being asked to,” he stated
