He expressed optimism that members of the consultative forum at the Roundtable summit, who were carefully selected will come out with useful recommendations that will guide his administration in taking a right and well informed decision.

"Shortly after my assumption of office, precisely on Wednesday, December 5, 2018, I held an interactive meeting with the All Nigerian Confederation of Principals of Secondary Schools (ANCOPSS) and the Association of Primary School Headteachers of Nigeria (AOPSHON) at their instance.

"At that meeting, they raised ten (10) issues, all of which touched on the extant Education Policies of the State and they suggested solutions.

"Thirteen (13) months later, (January 2020), the Hon. Commissioner for Education and the Special Adviser on Education came up with an extensive Executive Council Memorandum covering 26 subjects/issues on our extant Education Policies in Osun. It is important to let you know that the 26 issues raised in the Executive Council Memorandum also include the earlier ten (10) issues raised by the leadership of ANCOPSS and AOPSHON.

"In the interest of the generality of our people and in the spirit of democracy"
