Aregbesola’s education policy lacks focus and human face – fatai Akinbade


Alhaji Fatai Akinbade who is the governorship candidate under Labour Party LP has
lampooned the Rauf Aregbesola’s administration over
alleged bastardisation of the education sector in the state.

Akinbade said the re-classification of public schools and
lack of tangible plans for the state-owned tertiary
institutions by the All Progressives Congress (APC)
government (APC) in the state is the basis for the dwindling
of the education sector in the state.

In a statement by his spokesperson, Mr. Kayode Oladeji, the
LP standard bearer insisted that the state had never had it so
bad in the education sector, and decried the strike embarked
upon by the teaching and non-teaching staff of the four
tertiary institutions owned by the state government.He
maintained that Aregbesola caused the crisis in the
education sector in the state and urged those who value
education to vote him out on August 9.

“The education sector has been badly affected, so much
muddled up. Many schools built through communal efforts
have been demolished, thereby leaving the pupils and their
parents in such areas, in serious problems. The policy lacks
focus and human face,” he stated.Akinbade added that “all
our tertiary institutions have been under lock and key since
February this year due to the ineptitude and greed of the
administration. Teachers and students have been at home
sinceFebruary, with Aregbesola turning deaf ears to their
demands, yet he is spending billions of naira on frivolities.”

According to him, “the situation really calls for concern. The
lecturers are asking for their hard earned money, which they
contributed as allowed by the new Contributory Pension
Scheme. This money runs into billions of naira.”

“The money has been mismanaged and that is why the
administration’s agents have been blowing all sorts of
grammar instead of giving the lecturers their money.
Currently, our West African Examination Council (WEAC)
result is low. Our state is now at the lowest rung when
compared to what it used to be some years back.”
