Ogun to Return Mission Schools0
Ogun State Governor, Senator Ibikunle Amosun, has reiterated his administration’s determination to return mission schools in the state to their original owners.
Amosun gave this assurance at the 60th birthday thanksgiving service in honour of the state Chief Judge, Justice Olatokunbo Olopade, at the Freeman Methodist Cathedral, Ogbe-Abeokuta, against the back drop of a request by the Presbyter, Rev. Jonathan Osin.
He also promised that his government would not rescind its decision on the return of mission schools, noting that,
I am a product of missionaries. We are not in competition with them but in collaboration. “Our commitment to educational development is evident in the on-going construction of model schools that would further help in giving everyone access to education regardless of the financial status
The governor also assured that his leadership would assist in the re-construction of all schools in the state, in line with what he called the “Ogun Standard level.” He thanked the good people of the state for their support and urged them to continue pray for the government.
