Mr Gbemileke Ogunrombi, National President of the Association, gave the commendation in Abeokuta on Friday.
Ogunrombi explained that the present administration in Ogun, since assumption of office had provided infrastructure and basic needs to schools across the state and also made the environment conducive for learning.
