Axxela Limited, a gas and power portfolio company has rehabilitated the Olowogbowo Methodist Primary School in Lagos and donated books for its library.
The school which is located within the Right-of-Way of the Greater Lagos IV (GLIV) gas pipeline, was developed by Axxela’s subsidiary, Gaslink Nigeria Limited, in partnership with the Nigerian Gas Marketing Company (NGMC).
The project include general repair of 16 classrooms, replacement of all damaged windows, installation of new library bookshelves, restoration of the playground, provision of a fully-equipped sick bay, and replacement of all toilets and sewage system.
Axxela’s Community Relations Manager, Aloiye Aigbonoga said, “We adopted and refurbished the school, upgraded the library and furthered our commitment to improve the learning habits and reading culture among our youth.
“We are also proud to empower staff of the school by providing an improved workplace environment, as this initiative gets us closer to achieving the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goal 4 of Quality Education,” he said.
The Lagos Island Government Education Authority Secretary, Moshood Mayegun commended Axxela and promised that the Authority will ensure that the facilities are judiciously used.
The company recently commissioned a newly re-constructed Elegbata Sports complex located in Lagos Island.
