Ondo State government will begin the implementation of its data collation initiative, the smart card, otherwise known as Kaadi Igbeayo in schools as pupils and students resume for a new session next week.

As part of its strategy to ensure that residents comply with government’s directive to obtain the residency card, school authorities in the state have been ordered to request students to present photocopies of their parent’s card on resumption at school.

To this end, a meeting has been held with heads of primary and secondary schools in the state instructing them to collect photocopies of the Residency Cards of the parents of their pupils and students as they resume for a new session.

Consequently, all parents and guardians who are yet to collect their cards have been advised to do so before the resumption of schools.

The State Commissioner for Information, Hon. Kayode Akinmade while speaking with newsmen on Friday said already, a meeting has been held with members of the State Chapter of the National Association of Proprietors of Private Schools (NAPPS) on the relevance of the cards in the task of revamping the education sector in the state.

The Commissioner said the meeting which was followed up by a sensitization and enlightenment programme was mainly to sensitise them on the relevance of the card which is in fulfilment of the Governor’s promise during his inauguration in 2009 when he promised efficient service delivery to the people of the state by using accurate data of every resident of the state.
