The Lagos State Government has stressed the need for an enabling environment for teaching as part of efforts to upgrade the state’s education sector.

The Permanent Secretary of Education District II, Mrs Anike Adekanye, disclosed this in a statement made available to journalists on Wednesday.

Adekanye, at an event, organised in Lagos to receive a delegation of African culture researchers from South Carolina, United States, highlighted the role of education in strengthening cultural relations between the black Americans and Africans.

She said, “I appreciate Governor Babajide Olusola Sanwo-Olu for taking deliberate steps to project the rich culture of Lagos State. Lagos is lucky to have a governor and leaders in the education sector who are always supporting and providing an enabling environment for teaching in the state.

“This visit by the US delegates is an affirmation that the governor is working and it’s visible for all to see and the team of Education District II will ensure there are valuable and visible results for all the resources being committed to the education sector under the present administration.”

The leader of the delegation, Gloria Boutle, explained that the visit was a result of the importance attached to the Yoruba language and its cultural practices generally among black Americans.

“There is a bond between the black African/Americans and the people of Nigeria in terms of their cultural heritage, especially the Yoruba race, and I am particularly glad that this visit espoused the uniqueness of the Yoruba language, greetings, dance, occupations, lifestyle, traditions and other areas that are typically looked down upon by foreigners,” she said.
