The Local Government Education Authority (LGEA), Oshodi-Isolo branch has revealed its achievement in the educational sector within the community, claiming to have significantly raised the standard of academics to an enviable level .

In an interaction with Echonews, the Secretary of the Organization, Femi Ogunwusi, disclosed that schools in Oshodi-Isolo have been leading schools in other local government areas across Logos State in Arts, Science and Technology since 2017.

Ogunwusi, who succeeded Alausa Adekoya as Education Secretary in August 2017, accredited the feat to the support of the State Universal Basic Educational Board (SUBEB) under the distinguished Executive Chairman of Dr.Oluremi Sopehin, in terms of infrastructural improvement as well as effective administrative support towards smooth running of the schools by the LGEA.

He however solicited the support of Oshodi, Isolo and Ejigbo local government chairmen towards restructuring primary schools under them as well as provision of finance, security and logistic vehicles to wheel education to greater heights.


In the pursuit of effective discharge of duty, Ogunwusi noted that lackadaisical attitude of some staff members, especially lateness and absenteeism was first tackled, which, according to him, has been adjusted a great deal.

He said that he also employed the use of checkmate measure in achieving the desired goal of the LGEA.

With the necessary measures put in place, the LGEA scribe declared that Oshodi-Isolo LGA has been lifted to first position among selected 20 local government schools within Lagos in the arts, science and technology as well as project competition organised by NTA, titled “Development of Agriculture to Minimize Hunger in the Country and Create Job Opportunity.”

According to him, the project was adopted for National Competition in Abuja, involving many local government schools across Nigeria in participation.

He confirmed, “Elegantly, Oshodi-Isolo LGEA emerged with the first position again at the national level.”
