We Will Improve Osun Performance Rating In Public Examinations – Adeleke

May 25, (THEWILL) – Osun State Governor, Senator Ademola Adeleke, has declared his administration’s readiness to address the low performance of students from the state in national examinations, bemoaning the current standing of the state in public examinations.

Governor Adeleke made the declaration at the commissioning of a computer-based examination centre donated by the Chief of Army Staff under the Civil-Military intervention projects in Obokun, on Thursday, highlighting measures in place by his government to take the state to the top in performance rating in public examinations.

The Governor, who was represented at the event by his Deputy, Prince Kola Adewusi, lauded the military authority as well as the facilitator for locating the project in the state.

Adeleke said his government is focused on reversing the current poor standing of the state in public examinations and placing it between number one to ten on performance rating by giving “urgent attention to the learning environment, learning tools and teacher-student question.”

He added that his government is already prioritising the improvement of schools by embarking on renovation and upgrading of facilities, pointing out that “Teachers’ welfare is also high on the agenda to motivate them in the teaching-learning process.”

“Our approach to students’ welfare is to address the general poverty crisis within the society through an accelerated focus on grassroots development. This is targeted at ensuring that alleviating community poverty will provide enabling home environments for the students to improve their learning capacities.

“The issue of learning tools is being addressed on various fronts. For example, efforts are ongoing to revive the nine computer centres located in schools across the nine federal constituencies.

“Our team of technocrats also recently hosted several meetings on tech-assisted learning and examination processes. Our administration is so passionate towards a holistic approach to the low performance of our children at the national examinations,” he said.

Adeleke welcomed the new facility as a great addition to his administration’s push for improved educational attainment for students in Osun state, directing “all Ministries, departments and agencies to relate with implementing agencies for seamless operations and collaboration. Commissioned projects should be integrated into state activities.

“We should not allow federally donated projects to waste away after commissioning for whatever reasons.”
