Osun state governor, Mr.Rauf Aregbesola, has stated that the passion with which his administration pursues its goal in the education sector arises from the conviction that education is the fulcrum upon which life and living rest.
Aregbesola stated this while receiving a 35 year old compilation of past Joint Admission and Matriculation Board (JAMB) questions and answers produced and presented to him by the leadership of the Coalition of All Progressives Supporters Group, at Government House, Osogbo.
The compendium contains past questions and answers of English and Mathematics from 1980 to 2015.
The Governor who said only education can guarantee the improvement and betterment of human conditions noted that a solid education guarantees perpetual and reliable succession and an assured future.
He said his government is passionate about education as there can’t be improvement in the condition of the state if government fails to equip it’s upcoming generation and develop them to explore nature to its extreme possibilities so that it won’t be a threat to them.
Aregbesola stated that the gesture is highly impressive and will serve as an elixir for government to continue to do the utmost within its capacity to guarantee a better future for its youths.
His words: “We are indeed passionate about education because there cannot be any improvement in our condition if we do not equip our upcoming generations.
“We are determined to develop and equip them to be able to explore nature to the extreme possibilities so that nature will no longer be a threat to them.
“Education is life itself; it guarantees improvement and betterment of human conditions.
“Without education there is no succession. Education guarantees trustworthy and reliable succession. And no one will want destruction for his succession. This is while education occupies uppermost place in our heart.”
Earlier in his remark, the National Youth Leader of the Group, Comrade Mojeed Yaya, described the educational policies of the state as one of the best among in the country, adding that most of the state’s education programmes had been locally and nationally adopted and replicated by the government at various levels.
He therefore urged the state government not to relent in its effort towards continued support of education as the only way to develop the society.
