Osun state chairman of New Nigeria Peoples Party (NNPP), Dr. oluwatosin Odeyemi has advised Governor Gboyega Oyetola to prioritise the needs of states’ tertiary institutions instead of wasting the scarce resources.
Odeyemi, who spoke on the recent presentation of two vehicles to some students associations in the state; NAOSS and NANS, in a statement he signed and made available to CityMirrorNews, said the government’s action was a total misplacement of priority which should be condemned.
He advised the governor to take a walk round tertiary institutions in the state, interact with students to know their suffering in other to ameliorate them, instead of embarking on what will not add any value to our educational system.
According to Odeyemi, who doubles as the state secretary for IPAC, “I believe people around Mr. Governor are not giving him right advice. Taking UNIOSUN for instance, despite the increase in students capacity, yet no additional lecture halls, it will soon get to a stage whereby students will be sitting on the corridor to receive lectures.
“Except for Osogbo Campus, lack of electricity is taking toll on the students, if you go there during lectures, immediately there is light, the lecturer will have to pause and wait for students to fix their mobile phones where to charge them.
“Moreover, whenever there is no light, to get water in those campuses is another problem. Instead of the government to look at those areas and find lasting solutions to them, distribution of buses is their priority.
“Go to OSPOLY Iree campus, unavailability of students’ hostel should be looked into. Living among indigenes is posing a serious threat to the safety of students, likewise in other tertiary institutions in the state”
