Support OYSG To Revamp The Education Sector – GGG


By; BAYO AKAMO, Ibadan.
The Good Governance Group (GGG) on Wednesday asked parents to support Oyo state government in revamping of the state education sector.
GGG in a statement by the coordinator of the group, Mr Gbolagade Olatunji also urged the state government and its employees not to treat the implementation of the recently released white paper on education with kid gloves.
The non-governmental organization stressed that for the new education policy to be effective, is the need for government to walk the talk about its commitment to restore the lost glory in the education sector.
The group however lauded parents of Isale Oyo Community High School, Community High school, Ojo and Community Secondary School Iyana-Idi Ose for renovating the schools burnt by some students protesting the no automatic promotion policy of the Oyo State government.
GGG added that the parents of the schools have demonstrated the desired level of responsibility by renovating the schools which clearly showed that they have lent their voice and support to the government’s policy as well as taking responsibility for their children’s action.
“It is a good thing that the government is trying to arrest the decadence in the education sector. Over the years, we viewed the commitment of the present administration towards education as average but recently, the situation has changed”.
The group pointed out that the parents of the children of the burnt schools have proved that they value the future of their children through purposeful education and are in firm support of government to provide quality education for all and sundry.
GGG then urged parents who are aggrieved with the state government’s no automatic policy to take a cue from the actions of the parents of the three schools being renovated, adding that government’s reform in the education sector should be supported by all stakeholders.
“We have watched with keen interest the activities of the government to stop the rot in the education sector. While we commend them for taking the bull by the horn, we, at the same appeal to them to be firm in implementing their policies to arrest the situation”.
