Catholic Bishop Urges Adeleke To Return Their Schools

The Bishop, Catholic Diocese of Osogbo, Most Rev John Oyejola has appealed to Osun State governor, Ademola Adeleke to return some of their schools in the state to them.

The Bishop who made the plea during a courtesy call on the governor in his office said the church wanted the schools back as a way of revamping the education sector in the state.

Oyejola disclosed that the state government needs to focus more on grassroots and hard-to-reach communities in the state by providing stable and efficient local government leadership, water, security, health facilities and better welfare packages to rural dwellers.

The cleric informed the governor that many schools especially in rural areas were not conducive for learning and teaching activities and appealed to him to urgently fix the rot in the education sector.

He drew the attention of Governor Adeleke to the activities of some agents of the state government that constitute distractions to the Catholic Church’s efforts of putting the state on national and global maps in the area of education, noting that such development should not be allowed.

In his remarks, Governor Adeleke said his administration was working on partnering with investors in areas of agriculture, power generation to boost the economy of Osun, noting that his government has performed so well in areas of abandoned projects by previous administrations.

Adeleke said his government has invested greatly on healthcare especially in the rural areas, insisting that his administration has not borrowed a dime since inception.
