The 3-day education summit recently organized by Governor Ademola Adeleke’s administration is aimed at resuscitating the education sector in Osun state from its current poor state.
Chairman of the state teaching service commission, TESCOM, Mr Temitope Mustapha stated this on Saturday on IMOLE AYO, a sensitization programme promoting the activities of Governor Ademola Adeleke’s administration on OSBC Radio and Television channels.
The weekly simulcast Yoruba programme is put in place by the office of the spokesperson to the governor, Mallam Olawale Rasheed to highlight the achievements of Governor Ademola Adeleke’s administration in Osun state.
Mr Mustapha said the Governor while receiving the report of the education summit from the organizing committee promised to study the report and implement the recommendations therein to revamp the sector.
“Governor Adeleke has mapped out strategies to provide incentives for teachers working at the grassroots to make the villages comfortable for them to live and reduce their quest for transfer to urban areas.
“On the issue of teachers recruitment, stakeholders are already brainstorming to work out modalities to ascertain the number of subject teachers needed to be employed and posted to schools where their services are required across the state”, he added.
The TESCOM chairman urged parents and guardians to support Osun government by paying necessary dues on the education of their children and wards regularly, saying such money is being used for the maintenance of schools as government alone can not do it.
