Interior Minister, Aregbesola Lambastes Osun Education Commissioner



The Nigeria Minister of Interior, Ogbeni Rauf Aregbesola blasted the Osun State Commissioner for Education, Oladoyin Olayimika Folorunso for being absent while he commissioned projects donated by Huawei to a pubic school in the state.

Aregbesola last Friday commissioned some projects donated by the Global Information and Communications Technology company, Huawei, to Ogedengbe School of Science, Ilesa, Osun State, which include toilet, water supply, and laboratory to create a conducive environment for learning in the school.

The Interior minister blasted the commissioner for sending an aide to represent him knowing he will be present at the programme.

While registering his anger, Aregbesola said, in no condition will the commissioner for Education be absent at the commissioning of projects akin to his ministry, while a minister from the same political party came from Abuja for.

He said, “Before I will commission this project, I must say this because it is disrespectful and a sign of unseriousness. I will be blamed for it if I kept mute because I am an elder.

“A minister came from Abuja to a state where our party is ruling to commission project for the ministry of Education and the commissioner sent his Personal Assistant.

“This is really bad. Things shouldn’t have to go this way. A minister from the same party…”

He, however, lauded the company for investing in the Nigerian education system.

Present at the programme, the Speaker of State House of Assembly, Hon. Timothy Owoeye, All Progressive Congress (APC), Secretary, Alhaji Rasak Salinsile and stakeholder in Ilesha APC.
