Omisore said education was accorded top priority in his
eight-point agenda of his Rescue Mission.
He said the government of Ogbeni Rauf Aregbesola had
caused so much confusion in the education sector that he
would, on assumption of office, cause a paradigm shift in

schools that were taken over by government in the past,
would be returned to their original owner(s).

to identify unruly behaviour among pupils.

inherent in the tablet had caused serious setback to

He, however, promised a peaceful co-existence between
Christians and Muslims without any discrimination.

necessary in order to allow candidates of various political
