The Osun State Executive Council has approved that the newly constructed Ilesa Government High School be commissioned on the 24th of October.
It also approved the commencement of the distribution of about 400,000 Kaadi Omoluabi for students on the same day.
The decisions were reached at the state executive Council meeting held on Wednesday.
According to Sola Fasure, Governor Aregbesola’s Media Adviser in a statement, the Ilesa High School is part of the 11 High Schools constructed by the present administration in Osun to provide an effective and qualitative environment for students to learn in the state.
The council also in the wake of the sealing up of some businesses and organizations in the state urged business owners and corporate heads to fulfil their responsibilities to the government to avoid such Embarrasment in the future.
The statement read in part “Council was briefed that some organisations and business concerns had their premises sealed for contravening the state’s revenue law. This is clearly an avoidable situation. Council frowned on this and enjoined all residents and organisations doing business in Osun to be good corporate citizens by fulfilling their obligations to the state to avoid unpleasant consequences.”
The Osun State Exco also lauded the efforts of an indigene of the state, Islamiyat Yusuf who did the state and nation proud during the just concluded African Youth Games in Uganda.
“Council congratulates and commends Islamiyat Yusuf, an indigene of the state, who represented Nigeria at the just concluded African youth game in Uganda where she participated in the event of weightlifting. She won three gold medals for Nigeria. She had earlier represented Osun at the Nigerian Youth Games in Ilorin where she won three gold, two silver and two bronze medals.”
Fasure added in the statement that “Council was informed that the Ministry of Education, in collaboration with the State Universal Basic Education Board (SUBEB), distributed large consignments of instructional aid and sporting equipment to middle schools in the state. This is part of the government’s efforts at developing the total man through learning and physical exercise.”
