The Academic Staff Union of Secondary School Teachers, Ogun State chapter yesterday distributed 200 cars and 800 tricycles to members under its “one teacher-one brand new car” scheme.
The vehicles and tricycles were distributed at the MKO Abiola Stadium, Abeokuta.
Folarin promised that the union would do all within its powers to improve the lot of its members, urging beneficiaries to adhere to the repayment schedule.
He also appealed to Governor Ibikunle Amosun, to reopen the 13 closed secondary schools because the closure had affected some communities.
The chairman assured the governor that the union would complement the government’s efforts by donating furniture to the schools if they were reopened.
Folarin said the union had already renovated two schools in anticipation of their being reopened, noting that they are Imodi-Ijasi Comprehensive High School and Ikangba Community High School under Odogbolu Local Government.
