We Will not Close Any Institution in Osun – Mrs. Titilayo Laoye-Tomori

We are not scraping any Osun institution.
The Deputy Governor of Osun State,
Mrs. Titilayo Laoye-Tomori, has said
that the government is not planning
to scrap any of its tertiary
institutions.
Laoye-Tomori stated this in a
statement issued after she briefed
members of the state House of
Assembly Committee on Education
over the development in the
education sector.
She said the government had advised
the institutions to harmonise their
courses to avoid duplication of
courses and ensure that graduates of
the institutions acquire appropriate
skills that could make them job
creators after graduation.
She said, “The government has
directed the Forum of Chairmen of
the Governing Board of the
Institutions to review their
programmes and come up with a
position paper on how to make our
students job creators instead of job
seekers after graduation. We want
our polytechnics to run courses that
would meet the need of the nation
and make the graduates self-reliant
“Towards this end, the government
has directed all the tertiary
institutions to devote 50 per cent of
their admission quota to their main
programmes, 25 per cent should be
devoted to remedial programmes to
cater for the youths that could not
gain admission into any tertiary
institution.
“Finally, the polytechnics are to
devote 25 per cent of their
admission to vocational, technical
and skill acquisition courses where
graduates that want to acquire such
skills can enrol and where artisans
that want to sharpen their skills and
acquire certificates can also be
admitted while the Colleges of
Education are to devote 25 per cent
of their admission quota to running
of continuous education programmes
for training of teachers from all over
the state and beyond.”
This, she said, was to ensure the
production of self-reliant graduates.
“There is no plan to scrap any of the
four tertiary institutions. We just want
them to run viable programmes,” she
stressed.
