The National Association of Ogun State Students (NAOSS) has commended Governor Dapo Abiodun for what it called his administration’s remarkable achievements in the education sector within the last one year in office.
The students’ body in a statement by its National President, Comrade Gbemileke Ogunronmbi in Abeokuta on Thursday described Governor Abiodun as the most student friendly governor in the history of the state.
According to NAOSS, Governor Abiodun’s sincerity of purpose and sheer determination have changed the fortunes of the education sector for good.
The Association attributed the unprecedented development in primary, secondary and tertiary levels of education to the commitment of the governor to restore the lost glory of education in the State.
Ogunronmbi, who lamented what he regarded as the negligence of education sector by the immediate past administration of Senator Ibikunle Amosun, insisted that “but for timely intervention of Governor Abiodun in the crises that bedeviled all the three levels of education in the State, the sector would have completely collapsed.
“We commend the courage, resilience and doggedness of Governor Dapo Abiodun in reviving the education sector of the State.
“The Governor has shown to all the good people of the State that nothing is impossible to achieve if only one sets his mind to it.
“The problems that bedeviled the education sector of the State when Governor Abiodun assumed the position of power seemed insurmountable but in no time, the Governor with determination and sincerity of purpose achieved so many feats in the sector with little or no resources within the shortest possible time”, the students leader said.
He added that, “One of the most remarkable achievements of Governor Abiodun is the rehabilitation of 236 primary schools across all the wards in the state.
“Besides these numerous achievements in the education sector, all other sectors of the State have also witnessed unprecedented development.”
NAOSS congratulated the Governor for achieving all the feats within a short period of one year and urged him not to relent in his effort to take the state to an enviable height.
