Governor Dapo Abiodun has revived Ogun State education sector – NAOSS
The National Association of Ogun State Students (NAOSS) has commended Governor Dapo Abiodun for his remarkable contributions towards improving the education sector in the state.
According to a statement given by the National President, Comrade Gbemileke Ogunrombi, the students’ body described Governor Abiodun as the most student-friendly governor in the history of the state.
NAOSS said the Governor’s sincerity, and determination has changed the fortune of the education sector in the state for good, attributing the unprecedented development in all education level to the commitment of the governor in restoring the lost glory of education in the state.
“We commend the courage, resilience, and doggedness of Governor Dapo Abiodun in reviving the education sector of the State. The Governor has shown to all the good people of the State that nothing is impossible to achieve if only one sets his mind to it,” the statement read per Vanguard.
“The problems that bedevilled the education sector of the State when Governor Abiodun assumed the position of power seemed unsurmountable but in no time, the Governor with determination and sincerity of purpose achieved so many feats in the sector with little or no resources within the shortest possible time.
“It is this seriousness of the government and sincerity of purpose that changed the fortunes of the education sector in the state for good.
“The prestigious and long-existing Moshood Abiola Polytechnic (MAPOLY), Abeokuta was a walking corpse. The immediate past government led by Senator Ibikunle Amosun, for reasons best known to them, uprooted the established working system of the tertiary institution, making unnecessary claims of the need to convert the school to a university of science and technology – a move that would have cost all academic and non-academic staff of the institution to lose either their jobs or some years of service.
“However, today, MAPOLY is back on her feet, with a good number of employed staff, matriculated students, robust IGR, and an overall working system; thanks for Governor Dapo Abiodun who intervened.
“The Tai Solarin College of Education (TASCE), Omu, Ijebu was also not spared in the mismanagement of the last administration. The tertiary institution was shut down for almost two years as a result of the crisis that engulfed the school.
“But in less than two months in office, Governor Abiodun set up a visitation panel to make reformatory recommendations on the situation of the school and in November 2019, the Governor inaugurated a 12-member Governing Council chaired by Chief Yemi Adefulu, and today, TASCE is starting to return to its old glory, having held its first combined convocation ceremony in December.
“One of the most remarkable achievements of Governor Abiodun is the rehabilitation of 236 primary schools across all the wards in the State.
“Besides these numerous achievements in the education sector, all other sectors of the State have also witnessed unprecedented development.
“The student body therefore urged Governor Abiodun to remain focused and not be deterred by the opposition party.”
