‘Osun car gift to students shows misplaced priorities’

Gboyega Oyetola, Governor of Osun State

Osun State chairman of New Nigeria Peoples Party (NNPP), Dr. Oluwatosin Odeyemi, has enjoined Governor Gboyega Oyetola to prioritise the needs of states’ tertiary institutions instead of wasting the scarce resources.

Odeyemi, who spoke against the backdrop of the government’s vehicles gifts to some students’ associations in the state said the government’s action was a total misplacement of priority which should be condemned.

He advised the governor to take a walk round tertiary institutions in the state, interact with students to know their suffering in other to ameliorate them, instead of embarking on what will not add any value to our educational system.

Odeyemi, said, “I believe people around Mr Governor are not giving him right advice. Taking UNIOSUN for instance, despite the increase in students capacity, yet no additional lecture halls, it will soon get to a stage whereby students will be sitting on the corridor to receive lectures.

“Except for Osogbo Campus, lack of electricity is taking toll on the students, if you go there during lectures, immediately there is light, the lecturer will have to pause and wait for students to fix their mobile phones where to charge them.

“Moreover, whenever there is no light, to get water in those campuses is another problem. Instead of the government to look at those areas and find lasting solutions to them, distribution of buses is their priority.

“Go to OSPOLY Iree campus, unavailability of students’ hostel should be looked into. Living among indigenes is posing a serious threat to the safety of students, likewise in other tertiary institutions in the state”
