24 April 2015, 07:46Augustine Osayande

Abuja - The Lagos State Government has organized science-focused initiatives to deepen the understanding of Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) subjects among pupils in the state.

Primary and secondary school students are poised to benefit from the initiatives, which the Ministry of Science and Technology is organising.

The Commissioner for Science and Technology, Adebiyi Mabadeje, said the objective was to get primary and secondary school pupils interested in the Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics subjects at an early age.

Mabadeje disclosed that the state government had established over 120 ICT laboratories in public schools to enable the students gain first hand practical experience on Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics subjects using computers and tablets that are internet enabled.

He said state government had also used ICT as leverage to strengthen its e-governance capabilities in order to serve the residents of the state in a convenient, efficient and transparent way.

“This is largely based on our investment in the Oracle ERP platform where we collect, store and manage all aspect of our budget, revenue, payments, inventory and Human Resources data,” Mabadeje said.

The commissioner declared that the state government was in the process of collecting the biometric data of all Lagos residents through the Lagos State Residents Registration Agency (LASRRA). 

He said the exercise would enable the state to have an accurate data on residents of the state as well as help in effective deployment of resources.
