The Governor of Osun, Ogbeni Rauf Aregbesola, on Wednesday said his administration will leave no stone unturned in giving Osun a legacy of an enhanced environment of learning‎ obtainable in any advanced country of the world.

This was even as the Association of Primary Schools Headteachers of Nigeria (AOPSHON) lauded the educational policies and programmes initiated by the Osun State Government under the leadership of Governor Rauf Aregbesola.

The governor stated this while receiving an Award of Excellence from the Association of Primary School Headteachers of Nigeria (AOPSHON) in Osogbo.‎

Aregbesola noted that his government has come to the realisation that school environment largely determine the quality and character of students produced.

He stressed that as part of his administration's commitment to the development of education in the state, government will be putting forward for use a high school facility with the capacity of 3,000 students named after Prof. Wole Soyinka in Ejigbo on Monday‎

He thanked the Association for finding the state worthy of being the host of her National convention, contrary to adversarial media impression.

The Governor held that Osun is a safe haven and the best place for the meeting of serious minds, saying it is peaceful, safe and endowed with the beauty of nature in its grandeur. ‎

Aregbesola added that education has been a major policy thrust of his government in Osun since the inception of our administration and the reason for the considerable amount of resources and effort spent on education.‎

According to the Governor, “Un‎doubtedly, education is also a common denominator between us; it is a passion we both share and it is my great desire that we both take it to a great level. On our part, we have given our possible best to education and will continue to do so.

“We are therefore building state of the art 100 elementary schools. The idea behind this is that there should be an elementary public school in every neighbourhood. We are also building 50 middle and 20 high schools. Out of these, 14 elementary schools, 15 middle schools and 11 high schools have been completed.

“Work is ongoing on the rest and they are at different stages of completion. It is our sincere hope that we shall complete them before the end of our tenure.

“On Monday, we are going to present our model high school, named after a worthy Nigerian and a great educationist himself, Prof Wole Soyinka. It is a school in a class of its own, that will accommodate 3,000 pupils, with full learning infrastructure.”‎

The association through its National President, Alhaji Mahmud Lawal commended the governor for his giant strides in education.

He described the state educational policies as one of the best in the world, saying Governor Aregbesola has bridged the wider gap between the public and private education in the country.

Alhaji Lawal who identified with the state government on the current economic situation lauded Aregbesola for his unwavering support to quality education as he has provided a smooth template and conducive academic environment for pupils and students across the state.

He averred that in spite the current financial challenges being encountered by the present administration, the state didn’t deter from all the programmes embarked upon.
