The Governor, while commissioning the newly completed N130 million Olufi Government Middle School in Gbongan, stated that his government sees school as an investment that will impact on the future of Osun and the society.
Aregbesola stated that the belief in building a better society has guided state’s policy and aspirations on education, noting that the present administration in the State has reformed the education sector.
He held that the new Olufi Government Middle School has risen from its ashes to a 1,450 capacity school with 29 classrooms that can accommodate 50 pupils each.
The complex has a staff room, Assistant Headmaster’s office, Headmaster’s office with private toilet, 3 Science Laboratories, a Library, Hall, a Secretary/waiting room, a sick bay, 10 toilets for pupils, 10 toilets for teachers, a storage space and water borehole.
The Governor said, ”Those of you who were familiar with this school in the past and compared to what it is now will admit that nothing short of a revolution has taken place here.
“I see a school as a tiny mustard seed when planted, but soon grows into a big tree whose branches and foliage provides homes for different birds and shades and resting place for human. It is from a school that those who will impact and shape our future will emerge.
“It stands to good reasoning therefore that we better provide a good one if we care about the future we want for ourselves”
