Oyo Deputy Governor Calls For Joint Effort In Improving Educational System
The Oyo State Deputy Governor, Engr Rauf Olaniyan, has donated internet facility to the newly upgraded ICT centre of the Queens School, Apata.
Engr Olaniyan made this donation today at the commissioning of the upgraded ICT centre in Queens School, Apata, Ibadan by the 1976-1981, set to commemorate their 40th year of graduation.
The donation is an addition to the 25 desktops and 5 laptops the Old Girls Association donated to the school to upgrade the ICT centre in the school, so as to boost e-learning and facilitate easy access to information and e-books for the students.
The Oyo State Deputy Governor also called on major stakeholders in the educational sector to support the government in improving the state and face of education in Oyo State.
The Deputy Governor asserted that the State Government’s effort needs to be complemented by Non-Governmental bodies such as the Old students’ associations, to ensure that this administration’s drive to revamp the sector comes to fruition.
The Oyo number-two man appreciated the Old Students Association for giving back to their Alma Mata and replenishing the source that once enriched them, adding that their effort is a wake-up call to other sets.
Olaniyan said the old students could attain their peak of their career and their current status because of the effort their teachers made and encouraged the students to cooperate with the teachers in molding them for a secured future.
Speaking earlier at the event, the Special Guest of Honour and Deputy Governor of Ogun State, Engr Noimot Salako-Oyedele, who also belongs to the set said the school gave them a solid foundation that has helped them stand firm and strong even after 40 years of exiting the school.
Engr Salako-Oyedele encouraged the students to pick role models that will guide them and can show them pathway to achieving and actualizing their dreams.
