The Prince Dapo Abiodun led administration in Ogun State is bent on revamping the education sector and has steadily built capacity to create an enduring educational system in schools across the State.
The Special Adviser to the Governor on Primary, Secondary and Technical Education, Mrs. Ronke Soyombo stated this at the 55th Founders Day celebration of Methodist High school, Arigbajo, Ifo, Ogun State.
According to her, to achieve success in the expansion of educational provision, nationally and internationally, there was the need to improve and sustain the quality of education by addressing identified challenges in the sector, adding that the ongoing teachers’ recruitment was an attestation to this move.
Soyombo reiterated the role expected of old students in the wider society saying, “Most of you hold key positions of influence, I would appreciate to see that you use the influence to direct the development of our society positively. You should always endeavour to uphold good morals and act as an inspiration to the society. I want to thank all of you for the amazing support you have always extended to the alma mater’’.
The Commissioner, who commended the Methodist High School Alumni for their contributions to the school, urged all other Alumni Associations in schools across the State to emulate the gesture.
Responding on behalf of the old students, the National president, Alhaji Shuaib Shokunbi, appreciated the State government for its effort at reviving education and the Special Adviser for honouring them with her presence, promising to continue supporting in developing the sector.
