"What we saw here are so massive and we are impressed that the State has been driving its  projects with systematic approaches.  We have been to Osun Central and we have just finished with Osun East Senatorial District and we are at Osun West.

"Part of what we have come here to do is to look at the learning environment, learning space, teaching and learning facilities, teachers' welfare, teachers' training and retraining. In the course of this tour, we have met with the pupils and the teachers and it is good to tell you that Osun teachers are very happy. He  Concluded .

Hon Famurewa used the opportunity to reel out the huge investments  so far made and still being made by governor  Adegboyega Oyetola in the field of education.


He added that the  administration is not unmindful of the importance of education,hence the special attention being accorded the sector in the last three years.


Virtually all the public schools in the three senatorial districts of the state were randomly selected and visited ,a development  which  afforded the visitors the opportunity to have a thorough on the spot assessment of the schools in Osun.
