Baale also prayed for the management of Jextoban for taking the initiative, stating that the effort is the first time such is happening.

In his words, he said, “This is the first time a school would be presenting life jackets to us in Agboyi Town; although government have been coming around to do that, and just one social club.

Lateef Adebiyi, also commended the school for using the Children Day Celebration to present life jackets to the community, instead of going to have fun as their mates are doing. He promised the staff and students of the school that the life jackets would be judiciously utilized and distributed.  

While speaking to journalists, the School Principal, Pastor Emmanuel Adegoke, said the School management thought it necessary to join the campaign to emphasize the use of Life Jackets by all waterways users. He urged all passengers to insist on life jackets before embarking on any journey on the water.

In his words, he said, “Jextoban is part of the community, we have a lot of students coming from this riverine community, we felt it is important for us to be part of the campaign on safety on our waterways, we therefore implore all operators and to insist of the usage of this jackets.”
