Olurode commends Buhari over establishment of new institution in Osun
Following the approval by President Muhammad Buhari for the establishment of six federal colleges of education, one in each of the geopolitical zones, the Chairman University of Lagos Muslim Community and former National Commissioner of the Independent National Electoral Commission, Professor Lai Olurode has commended President Muhammadu Buhari, the Minister of Education, Mallam Adamu Adamu and the government of Nigeria for locating one of the recently established Colleges in Iwo, Osun State. According to Professor Olurode, the choice of Iwo will certainly assuage the frustration and anger of people from Iwoland following of neglect, marginalisation and exclusion.
Secondly, the decision of President Buhari, according to the don would afford the people oa Iwoland to participate more meaningfully in national discourse and capacity building and thereby make the people to contribute their own quota to regional and national development.
He added that the College will confer on Iwo more visibility while simultaneously boosting commerce, investment and trade. The local economy of Iwo land will become more integrated into the national political economy.
The University don urges state governments to always emulate the Federal Government as the latter defers more to fairness, justice and logic in the allocation of national resources rather than resorting to sentiments, impunity and arbitrariness.
