A call has gone to old students’ associations to support the Ogun State government in its mission to transform the state educational sector to make it occupy its rightful place in the country.
The Deputy Governor, Engr Noimot Salako-Oyedele, made the call while receiving National Executive members of Queens School Ede/Ibadan Old Girls’ Association (QSOGA) who were on a courtesy visit to her at Oke-Mosan, Abeokuta, Ogun State capital.
Engr. Salako-Oyedele said government alone cannot shoulder all the responsibilities of providing the wherewithal for its citizens, hence the need for old students’ associations to join hands with government so as to collectively bring back the glory of the state education sector.

“The Prince Dapo Abiodun-led administration has done a lot in changing the face of the state education sector through the provision of infrastructural development, employment and capacity building for teachers and provision of teaching and learning tools to schools in the state but a lot still needs to be done”.
Earlier in her address, the National President of the QSOGA, Dr. Taiwo Adamson, pointed out that the deputy governor’s high sense of responsibility, tenacity for trustworthiness and passion to serve the state were not unconnected to the heritage bestowed on her as a product of Queen’s School.
