Aregbesola: ‘Children of the poor deserve good schools’

Governor Rauf Aregbesola of the State of Osun has made passionate call for the promotion of public school education in Nigeria, saying that the children of the poor deserve to go to good school.

Aregbesola said public school education, which is populated with children of the down trodden should be developed, make attractive and standardized for quality education delivery to the school children.

The governor made the call on Tuesday at the commissioning of Ayedaade Government High School, Ikire which was commissioned by the Nigeria’s Minister for Education, Mallam Adamu Adamu.

He called on all governments to invest in public school education if the nation wants to have peace and move forward.

He said his government decided to invest heavily in the public school education because of the realization that a failure to this is planning for a future of doom.

The governor who emphasised that the past glory of public schools needs to be rekindled for the benefit of all, noted that public school buildings used to be the best structures in the community before past governments neglected it.

According to Aregbesola, “I am convinced that the future of our state is secured because we have invested so much to upgrade public school structures in Osun.

“If all governments decide to turn a blind eye on the education of the down trodden then the future of the nation is doomed.

“We all know that public school structures used to be the best in the communities where people of my age bracket grew up before it was neglected by past governments.

“We seriously need to bring back the lost glory of our public schools because that is where we have majority of pupils and they also deserve the best. This is why this administration has been investing hugely in the education sector”.

The governor also used the occasion to call on parents to join the government in the maintenance of the new school buildings for the benefit of all by paying the token amount which the school administrators will use for the purpose.
