Offers Best Graduating Student Automatic Employment
Osun State Governor, Adegboyega Oyetola, has reiterated his administration’s commitment to transforming the education sector and putting it on a sure footing.
Oyetola stated this at the 42nd Founder’s Day and the 27th Convocation ceremony of the State College of Education (OSCOED), Ilesa.
He said government was determined to leave no stone unturned in its drive to provide the necessary support to raise the bar of education.
Oyetola maintained that the recent educational reforms, which are products of the yearnings of the people in the state, are aimed at conforming the sector to global best practices for optimum results.
He said the N11b earmarked for the sector in the proposed 2021 Budget was a justification of government’s commitment to an area that is central to the growth of other sectors.
This is even as the governor announced automatic employment for the overall best graduating student of the institution, Ilesa, Miss. Agboola Lateefat Oluwakemi.
Addressing the participants, Oyetola, who is the Visitor to the institution, stated that allocation of substantial funds to education was a giant leap toward ultimately meeting the UNESCO’s 26 per cent budget allocation on education, thus, complementing the government’s commitment to uplifting the sector and stimulating a vibrant knowledge economy.
He restated his administration’s resolve to continue to invest massively in upgrading infrastructure and other learning facilities, as well as assist in staff development to enable them to keep pace with the required global standard in the education sector.
