The President then commended Gov. Rauf Aregbesola of Osun for providing conducive learning environment for students in the state.
He said that the building of the Osogbo High School was worthy of emulation by other governors in the country, stressing that the school project was part of APC’s agenda on education.
He explained that the APC government would continue to implement education policies that would be cost effective.
He said, “I congratulate the people of Osun on the 25th anniversary of the state.
