Governor Oyetola: Reasons For Reviewing Ogbeni Aregbesola’s Education Policies

Governor Gboyega Oyetola, the governor of Osun State has explained the reasons behind the ongoing review of some of the policies initiated by his predecessor, Rauf Aregbesola.

Mr Oyetola said his administration’s desire to position the state for the benefit of the citizens and residents alike, and the demand by residents for the review, informed his decision.

The governor stated this while receiving the report of the committee set up to appraise the various issues including the school uniform, merger, abolition of single sex schools, among others.

This is contained in a statement issued by the chief press secretary to the governor, Ismail Omipidan, shortly after the submission of the report by the committee.

The statement quoted the governor to have said: “As a government, our policies and programmes are driven by citizens’ needs. These needs which were further validated by the United Kingdom Department for International Development’s (DFID)- funded Citizens Needs Assessment exercise in Osun, were harvested during the Thank You Tour/Town Hall Meetings, where the people told us in plain language that they wanted some aspects of our educational policies removed, adjusted or improved upon.”
