Journalists laud Aregbesola for providing functional education
The Nigerian Union of Journalists (NUJ) has lauded Governor Rauf Aregbesola for his effort at providing functional education, describing the model schools being constructed across the state as the best in the Southwest.
National Vice Chairman of the union in the zone, Mr Cosmas Oni who led other delegates who were in Osun for the union’s zonal meeting during a tour of projects executed by Aregbesola said no other state can match Osun model schools.
Oni said: “I am overwhelmed with what we have seen because the impression we had about this government is different from what we are seeing on ground. Without mincing words, in this zone, I have never seen any type of model school that covers the three stages of elementary, middle and high school.
I give kudos to Aregbesola for the edifice and for putting on ground solid foundation for our children. If you invest on the children, you are eradicating poverty.
In the same vein, the NUJ Chairman in Lagos State, Dr Kazeem Akinreti said the infrastructural projects being put in place by Aregbesola would outlive generations, maintaining that the governor has performed credibly well.
The Commissioner for Information and Strategy in the state, Mr Adelani Baderinwa who accompanied the NUJ delegation on the tour, described Aregbesola as a trailblazer and an actualiser, noting that Osun has moved from being a rustic to a beautiful state.
Baderinwa noted that as the governor is performing well in infrastructure, he is also excelling in socio-security programs, disclosing that about 25, 000 traders, small scales enterprise and business owners have benefitted from the N3.6bn fund provided by the government.
