ALL Progressives Congress (APC) gubernatorial candidate in Oyo State, Sen. Teslim Folarin, has promised to overhaul the state’s education sector, if elected into office.
Folarin, who is presently the Senator representing Oyo Central, made the disclosure while featuring on the guest forum of Oyo State Correspondents’ Chapel of Nigeria Union of Journalists (NUJ) in Ibadan.
Folarin said that the education sector of the state needed serious overhauling, deploring the poor education ranking which put Oyo State in the 33rd position out of 36 states and the delisting of about 50 schools in the state by the West Africa Examination Council, WAEC, for exam malpractices.
The former Senate Leader and current Chairman, Senate Committee on Local Content, asserted that Governor Seyi Makinde had misplaced his priorities by abandoning the education sector and spending so much to build bus terminals instead of standard schools across the state.
The APC governorship candidate further revealed that if elected as the governor of the state he would ban the operations of the Oyo State Park Management System, PMS.
He said PMS was alien to the law and atrocities committed by PMS members were becoming unbearable for people in the state.
The three-term Senator described himself as the best and most experienced among the governorship aspirants in Oyo State and promised to bring his experience to bear in his administration, if elected.
He said his administration would leverage the agriculture sector, where the state had comparative advantage to improve the state’s revenue base and economy.
Folarin, who is also the Coordinator for the APC Presidential Campaign Council in Oyo State, gave the assurance that the council would deliver at least 2 million of the 3.3 million votes available in the state to the presidential candidate of the party, Bola Ahmed Tinubu and his running mate, Senator Kashim Shettima in the February 25 election.
In his remarks the Chairman of Oyo State Correspondents’ Chapel, Raji Adebayo, lauded the governorship candidate for honouring the invitation.
