Ajimobi set to launch 3 Ultra-model schools

Oyo State governor, Senator Abiola Ajimobi yesterday disclosed that the three ultra-modern model schools being constructed by his administration in Ibadan and Saki will soon be ready for inauguration. The governor who disclosed this during an inspection tour of two of the model schools, Oba Akinbiyi High School, Mokola and Islamic High School, Basorun, both in Ibadan, said the project at the Baptist High School, Saki was also nearing completion and would be inspected soon.

The governor said that the construction of the model schools was in fulfilment of his administration’s resolve to holistically transform the education sector by enhancing the physical structures, teaching and learning as well as moral rectitude of the students. Ajimobi said that his administration had delivered on its promises, especially in relation to qualitative education, despite strong opposition in some quarters to the radical policies introduced to revamp the sector.

He said that some cynics went to town to dismiss the vision as impossible when he announced the decision of the government to construct the model schools, insisting that he would continue to prove them wrong by making his words his bond.  Ajimobi said the model school project and the Technical University, which recently matriculated its first set of students, were part of the legacies his administration would leave behind in the education sector.

According to him, these and the introduction of the School Governing Board (SGB) and Oyo State Model Education System Intervention (OYOMESI) have started impacting on the final year results of secondary school students across the state. When we first started, some people said we would not do it, but now, we have done it. They might say it took so long, but we did all these within our eight-year tenure. No administration had achieved similar feat in the last 30 years.

“No matter the rhetoric of the opposition and detractors, we have improved on education. Oyo State recorded the best performance in WASSCE and NECO in the last 18 years, last year. This is another feather in that cap of educational standards and growth in our state.”
