Ogun State Governor, Senator Ibikunle Amosun, on Monday assured protesting students of the Tai Solarin University of Education, Ijagun, that his government would interface with management of the institution towards resolving what they described as unacceptable policies of the school authority.

Addressing the students at the M.K.O Abiola International Stadium, Kuto, Abeokuta, Amosun said even though most of the issues raised by the students are administrative, the government would intervene and seek lasting solution to them. 

The governor, who revealed that education in the state's public primary and secondary schools is free, however added that “education in our tertiary institutions cannot be free, even though, we can subsidise it.”

He said there was no basis for comparison of the Pa Obafemi Awolowo era of free education with that of the present government, because “the population then cannot be compared with what we have now.”

On the alleged non-payment of subversion to the school, Amosun stated that, even though the subversion had been reduced, due to the dwindling resources of the state, it has always been paid regularly.

Earlier, the Students Union President, Sunny Raman Adeyemi, spoke on the challenges of the students, which included increment in acceptance, registration and vocational training fees.
