No school is being converted to shopping mall – Oyo State Commissioner

The Oyo State Government has described as mere campaign of calumny, insinuations that one of the government-owned secondary schools in Ibadan has been pulled down and converted to a shopping mall.

The Senate deputy chief whip, Senator Hosea Ayoola Agboola had been credited with a report, accusing the state government of planning to convert Oba Akinbiyi High School, Mokola, Ibadan to a shopping mall.

The state Commissioner for Education, Solomon Olaniyonu, in a statement issued in Ibadan, on Monday, said Oba Akinbiyi High School was one of the six schools earmarked for conversion to model schools.

“The pulling down of the structure is to pave way for the school to be rebuilt as a modern model school with 24 classrooms and all other modern facilities,’’ he added.

The commissioner said, on completion, the school would have facilities such as clinics, administrative block, laboratories for science subjects, “indeed, we want to ensure that the integrated science and the workshop for the newly-introduced entrepreneurial subjects are well-furnished to ensure their durability and the enhancement of thorough training for students.’’

Olaniyonu said that the contractors handling the project had already been mobilised, adding that the pulling down of the structures signified the commencement of work.

He said that work had also commenced on the remaining five schools equally scheduled for conversion to model schools, one of which he said was Baptist High School, Saki.

The commissioner accused Senator Agboola of embarking on deliberate spread of falsehood in order to score cheap political point. “Now that Governor Abiola Ajimobi has decided to use part of the meager resources available to the state to put the schools back to shape, the likes of Senator Agboola have embarked on deliberate spread of falsehood in order to cause confusion in Oyo State. It will not stand,’’ he said.
