Mr Olatunii who initiated and has been promoting the ” Tunde Goes to Teach ” programme, aimed at motivating students and teachers in the state, also lauded the Governor in the choice of individuals appointed, in view of their competence and extensive experience in the education sector.

According to him, ” I am full of hopes that this will have indelible mark on the basic education system, which global attention has recently shifted to due to its influence on poverty eradication globally ”
