The government of Osun state and the People’s Democratic Party in the state disagree over the poor performance of students in the state in this year’s results released by the West African Examination Council (WAEC).

While the state government revealed it is building a solid foundation for students to excel in the future, by doing so by righting the mistakes in the sector, the state PDP described it as “destructive.” the way the APC-led government handles the state’s education system.

The PDP said in a statement from its Caretaker Committee chairman, Dr. Akindele Adekunle, that it raised eyebrows at the state’s backward placement in the recently released performance rankings by WAEC.

According to the statement, “It is a humiliating and distasteful result of the APC-led administration’s laissez-faire attitude towards education in the state, leaving the all-important sector in the hands of idle propagandists, while the proverbial future leaders inadvertently mist their future.

“Only a government populated by emotionally handicapped adults, whose inability to effectively recognize and interpret the importance of education as the foundation of social development, would be indifferent to the state of education policy, approach and emerging consequences of Osun.

Osun PDP recalled how on many occasions it had advised the outgoing government on the need to prioritize curriculum-based education policies over ego-massage or artificial policies that had negatively impacted the school system in the state.

“For a long time, the state government had rejected all wise advice to hire competent professionals to fill existing vacancies in key subjects in nearly all public high schools in the state, in an effort to avert the current disaster.”

However, in response to the PDP statement, one of Governor Oyetola’s aides, Mr. Sunday Akere, said: “While the PDP will want us to swallow their holier pontificate, everyone knows that Rome was not built in a day.

“The rot in our education system requires an agile, systematic approach to get the results we want. What we are doing now is building a solid foundation for our students to excel in the future and we are doing this by correcting the mistakes in the industry and recruiting skilled staff to fill the existing vacancies.”
