The refurbished facilities include a fully equipped library, a creche for nursing teachers and an office for the Librarian.
“A 2019 report by the National Commission for Mass Literacy shows that four in 10 primary school children cannot read for comprehension.
“For a country that has produced literary giants like Chinua Achebe and Wole Soyinka, these statistics are disturbing,’’ it said in a statement.
It added that in line with its commitment to improving livelihoods in the communities directly connected to its operations, Nestle Nigeria Plc recently renovated and equipped the Makun High School library to help revive a love for reading among the students.
“We send children to school with the hope that they will develop a strong desire to acquire knowledge,’’ the statement quoted Mrs Victoria Uwadoka, Corporate Communications and Public Affairs Manager for Nestle Nigeria Plc as saying at the library’s inauguration.
Uwadoka said it would be difficult to encourage them to imbibe the culture of reading and learning if the environment was not conducive.
“Therefore, we are continuously focused on improving learning and teaching environments in the schools within our communities,’’ she said.
In 2019, Nestle Nigeria Plc refurbished facilities, including classroom blocks, toilets, playgrounds and handwashing stations in primary schools close to its factories.
One of the beneficiaries is the NUD Primary School in Owode Egba, Ogun.

In a speech delivered by the Zonal Education Officer, Mr P.K. Omotayo, the Commissioner for Education, Science and Technology for Ogun, Mrs Modupe Mujota, commended Nestle Nigeria, saying: “Education is both a necessity and an investment which everybody must embrace with the seriousness it deserves.
“In building this library for Makun High School, Nestle Nigeria has not only uplifted the reading culture but has lived up to its Corporate Social Responsibility.
“It is also a show of good partnership with the Ogun State Government in the education sector.’’
Also, Mrs O. W. Sotunde, Principal of the Junior School, said, “Today is a unique day because the teeming population of over 3,000 students and their nursing teachers now have the privilege of a top class library and a well-equipped creche, both of which can match those of any renowned private school.’’
Gift Felix, an SS1 Student in the school said: “I am thankful for the support of Nestle Nigeria and the government of Ogun State in building this beautiful library.
“This grants us access to materials for preparing toward our dream professions. Words are not enough to express our profound gratitude to Nestle Nigeria. God bless you!’’
