Minister applauds USOSA’s search for good governance
The Minister of Water Resources, Suleiman Adamu, has applauded Unity Schools Old Students Association (USOSA) for focusing on good governance and national development at its Kaduna summit.
He described it as timely and in consonance with the current drive of President Muhammadu Buhari.
Adamu’s commendation was echoed by the general secretary of USOSA, Mr. Nasir Wasagu, in a statement made available to The Guardian.
“The discussion by the proponents of unity schools on the matter cannot be timelier, as the country is trying to reactivate and deepen the culture of good governance in all sectors,” the minister said.
He urged all unity schools alumni to contribute to the efforts of the association for national rebirth and nation-building.
The minister, who is a member of USOSA and the national president of the FGC Kano Old Students Association, the statement added, urged all Usosans to attend the 36th plenary of the association “as we collectively seek to entrench good governance in Nigeria.
“Old students of unity schools should actually be the custodians and advocates of good governance, as we were trained in public schools at a time good governance was structurally embedded not just in the education sector but in the entire polity.”
The statement also quoted the president-general of the association, Lawrence Wilbert, as explaining that the 2019 Annual General Meeting (AGM) of the association would discuss contemporary issues around the Nigerian state and the role USOSA needs to play in building a modern and prosperous country.
“Usosans across the world will converge on Federal Government College, Malali, Kaduna State, from October 11 to 12, 2019 to discuss ‘The Role of USOSA in Enthroning Good Governance and National Development’. We enjoin all Usosans across the world to align with the leadership of their national associations to fully participate at the AGM,” Wilbert stated.
According to him, the AGM will include a plenary on Saturday, October 12, 2019.
