Awards & Honours
At the onset of the Mimiko administration in 2009, national statistics put Ondo State as having a school enrolment record that was the lowest in the southwestern region. The administration invested heavily in the provision of free education, free shuttle buses, the renovation of over 300 schools including the merging of some primary schools which birthed the Caring Heart Mega primary schools, a major overhaul of the secondary and tertiary institutions, and the creation of University of Medical Sciences, Ondo. In 2017, UNICEF scored the state highest in health, child survival, effort on nutrition, sanitation, and education, Country Representative of the UNICEF, Mr. Mohammed Mallick Fall, noted the free shuttle scheme among other developed social protection policies as “resourceful to the actualisation of SDG (Sustainable Development Goal) Vision 2030.”
