The Obateru of Egbin Kingdom in Ikorodu Lagos State, Oba Adeoriyomi Oyebo (Ademoyebo III), has presented school materials to pupils of Egbin Kingdom Nursery and Primary School.

The presentation held at his palace in Egbin, Ijede Local Council Development Area, was witnessed by members of the community, the chiefs and parents.

According to the monarch, the gifts were part of his contributions to the development of education in the community, and to assist the parents.

Items presented to each pupil include cloths, shoes, bags, writing materials, sport wears, among others. Other members of the community also benefitted from the gifts.

Oba Oyebo, in 2021, established the Egbin Kingdom Nursery and Primary School for the benefit of pupils who, before then, had to travel several kilometers to neighbouring Ijede to attend public school.

The school is tuition-free and pupils enjoy one meal per school day. Teachers’ salary is also paid by Oba Oyebo.

The monarch also recently donated one of his property to the community for the building of the first public primary school. The project is being funded by him.
