British High Commission trains 200 Oyo teachers

AS part of its contributions to the development of education in Oyo State, the British High Commission in Nigeria has begun the training of over 200 teachers in public schools in the state.
The Deputy British High Commissioner in Nigeria, Mr. Peter Carter, made this disclosure during a courtesy call on the Oyo State Governor, Abiola Ajimobi, in his office in Ibadan Wednesday.
He said that the training of the teachers marked the beginning of the collaboration between the commission and the state government, particularly in areas of education, trade and investment as well as gender equality.
The British envoy, who admitted that the commission had not been paying much attention to the South-West zone except Lagos, however, observed what he called the abundant investment opportunities in Ibadan, the state capital.
According to him, Ibadan is fast developing in preparation for future socio-economic opportunities, stressing that the commission would do everything possible to assist the Ajimobi administration in its unprecedented developmental strides.
Carter also lauded the urban renewal programme of the state government, which he said, was responsible for the influx of foreign investors into the state, noting with delight that Oyo had now become a preferred destination of choice for foreign investors.
