Osun State Governor, Senator Ademola Adeleke has lamented the bad state of education in Osun, saying that things have gone bad in every sector, hence the need for urgent attention.

The Governor stated this in his office, State Secretariat, Abere while receiving the report on the 3-day Education Summit from the Committee, targeted at repositioning education in the State.

He promised to study the report meticulously and implement the recommendations therein in order to resuscitate the education from the State of comatose.

The State helmsman, who expressed happiness about the success of the summit, commended the Committee members for their sacrifices and selfless service in ensuring the success of the event, noting that they delivered on their mandate.

He promised that his administration will do all within his power to reposition education in Osun and make students of Public Schools compete favourably with those in the Private Schools.

He lamented the situation where Students learn under leaking roof, stressing that he will make sure all delapidated buildings are rebuilt for Students to learn in a conducive environment.

Governor Adeleke decried the rate at which Children of School age are used for street hawking, promising to put a stop to it. He equally noted that his administration will revamp every sector like health and tourism, among others in Osun.

While promising that government will complete all abandoned projects in no distant time, the number one Citizen appealed to his cabinet members to make sacrifice for the State instead of waiting for what the State will offer them, emphasising that history will never forget them.

While presenting the report to the Governor earlier, Professor Oyesoji Aremu, who chaired the Committee, appreciated him for giving them the task.

He noted that the 16- member Committee worked assiduously to get it right in revamping education sector in Osun.

He said the people of Osun, both within and outside, showed interest in the summit, while reporting that, the Committee received 92 memorandum, 2,149 responses and 52 discussants were present and contributed greatly to the success of the summit.

He lamented that research showed that the last time Osun had the best result in WAEC was in 2018 when she took the 7th position in the Federation and ever since then, things have gone bad.

The Chairman further stated that report, according to UNICEF, revealed that Osun is leading in the Southwest with out of School Children which, he observed, calls for quick attention of Government.
