Governor Dapo Abiodun of Ogun State has inaugurated the panel to review the modalities of running both the Moshood Abiola University of Science and Technology (MAUSTECH) and Ogun State Polytechnic (OGUNPOLY).
The government had penultimate week announced the constitution of the committee to be headed by University of Lagos professor, Segun Awonusi.
It has a mandate to holistically review the status, viability and sustainability of these institutions.
The committee is also expected to recommend operational modalities for these institutions, after interfacing with stakeholders in the education sector.
At the inauguration, Mr Abiodun expressed his dismay at the inability of the Moshood Abiola University of Science and Technology (MAUTECH) to take off, two years after it was established.
He also expressed worries about the uncertainty surrounding the survival of the old Ogun State Polytechnic from where the new University was being carved out.
The governor described education as the pride industry of the State which is essential to achieving the mission of building the State together, hence it was “expedient for our administration to give qualitative education to the youth.”
Other members of the Committee are; Alhaji Waheed Kadiri, Professor Joseph Odemuyiwa, Dr Abiodun Oluseye, Barr. Abeeb Wale Ajayi, Mr H.O. Ayoade, while Dr Waheed Olanloye will serve as the secretary.
It has eight weeks to submit its report.
In a similar development, the governor also inaugurated the panel on Tai Solarin College of Education at my office in Oke-Mosan, Abeokuta.
This committee was set up, amongst other terms of reference, to assess the current status of the institution, with a view to ascertaining or otherwise, its objectives for the establishment, as well as the observance of the law that established it.
The governor also noted that the current state of the College which was the pride of the State in the past was saddening, charging the Committee to identify the challenges confronting the institution and come up with implementable solutions to move the school forward.
Professor Kamal Balogun chairs the committee.
“With the amount of focus our administration is giving to repositioning and strengthening our educational institutions, it is only a matter of time before our dear state regains it pride of place in the educational sector nationally and globally,” Abiodun added.For information on Press Releases, Photos, Promotional Events and Adverts, Please Call or Send a Text to 09052129258, 08124662170 or send an email to: firstname.lastname@example.org
