Governor Lucky Ayedatiwa has approved the establishment of schools that will combine acquisition of skills with theoretical knowledge.

Commissioner for Economic Planning and Budget, Pastor Emmanuel Igbasan stated this while playing to the executive members of the Nigerian Union of Teachers (NUT) Irele Local Government Area in his office.

Igbasan said the schools would train students on various modern skills such as building technology, mechanical, electrical and structural engineering, entertainment, fashion designing, welding and others.

   "The new education curriculum tagged Technical/Grammar Schools model is designed in such a way that it will revolutionise our education system. By the time a student finishes eleven years of education, he would have been equipped with a skill that he can fall back on and make a living, even without advancing to the university. Such students can apply for loans to set up a factory and government will help out"

    According to him, Nigeria cannot compete with other countries with the current Administrative and Clerical certificates our schools are providing.

  "Foundation is key to technological development and advancement. And unless you have the requisite skill technical know-how, knowledge and education, you cannot compete with your contemporaries. Other countries are building submarines under the Sea, while we are still talking about how to grow cocoa and cassava. We have to alter the system to make it productive and beneficial.

Earlier, the Chairman, NUT Irele Local Government Area, Comrade Olanrewaju Akinyele had thanked Governor Ayedatiwa for retaining Igbasan in his cabinet and congratulated him on his re-appointment as a Commissioner.
He described him as a round peg in a round hole.

But mostly and vexatiously, position blinds us as we use it to cheat and deny others their rights.

That fateful day was Sunday and in the evening; darkness was just enveloping the city.
