Senate to Aregbesola: Your Education Policy Has Failed

Source: pointblanknews.com

The Senate committee on education has taken a critical look at the education policy of Governor Rauf Aregbesola, and concluded that it has been a huge failure.

The committee said the failure of the Aregbesola education policy had made change inevitable, apparently referring to the upcoming governorship election in the state.

The committee's position was contained in a statement signed by its chairman, Senator Uche Chukwumerije.

Entitled “The Senate Committee on Education's position on Osun State', the committee admitted that it has had cause, in 2012, to award the governor pass-mark in education.

“Over 700 days down the line, a lot of water has passed under the bridge with many insisting that those policies were merely on paper,” regretted the committee.

In addition, said the senators, “stake holders in the State, especially parents, proprietors, and school managers have inundated the Committee with tell-tales of woes in schools in the State, adding that the waters that have passed under the bridge in two years have been muddied.”

Continued the committee, “They cited as an example the questionable N8 billion “Opon Imo” project,” stressing, “this has also been confirmed by political opponents of the governor in their public comments.”

The statement is reproduced below:
“Two years ago when the Senate Committee on Education visited Osun State as part of its oversight functions, I had cause to commend the education policies of Rauf Aregbesola.

Over 700 days down the line, a lot of water has passed under the bridge with many insisting that those policies were merely on paper.

In addition, stake holders in the State, especially parents, proprietors, and school managers have inundated the Committee with tell-tales of woes in schools in the State, adding that the waters that have passed under the bridge in two years have been muddied.

They cited as an example the questionable N8 billion “Opon Imo” project.

This has also been confirmed by political opponents of the governor in their public comments.

When good policies are darkened the way that project was, then change is a must.”

Signed.
Senator Uche Chukwumerije.
