The governor noted that children are the hope and channel for achieving goals of a better future, saying it is an offence for parents not to allow their children go to school.
He said the government is leading other stakeholders to achieve its goal of using education as a tool for delivering prosperity and development to the people.
Oyetola spoke on Thursday while commissioning school projects at both Telemu Comprehensive Middle High School and Morinu Community Elementary School in Ola-Oluwa Local Government and Iwo Local Government areas of the state, respectively.
The governor also unveiled “Ileri-Oluwa Fulfilling Promises Educational Programme”, which is a “redesigned and repacked approach to school infrastructure renewal, intended to reach every nook and cranny of the state within available human and material resources.”
Oyetola said the administration’s resolve to invest in education sector was aimed at achieving the state’s objectives of delivering a better life to the people and driving development in the state.
He said efforts had been made by the administration to maintain and sustain the existing schools; build and equip more schools; renovate dilapidated ones and provide well-trained teachers to teach the pupils and ensure that pupils attend schools punctually and regularly.
The governor appealed to parents to ensure that their children and wards are registered at school, attend school regularly and are well-behaved, saying, “There must be a synergy between the government, parents and teachers for the state to achieve its desired goals of making education the bedrock of development”.
Oyetola, who said the state has the required potential to lead the nation in both internal and external examinations, appealed to all teachers to ensure that the performance of Osun in Junior and Senior School Certificate results improve significantly.
He also urged the benefitting communities to ensure that the facilities were put to judicious use.
Unveiling the Ileri-Oluwa Fulfilling Promises Educational Programme in Iwo, Oyetola maintained that the initiative would put governance on autopilot and make sustainable development attainable.
Among the projects commissioned were six newly constructed classrooms, four blocks of three classrooms each, a deep well and a perimeter fence round the school.
