Ondo State Governor, Arakunrin Oluwarotimi Akeredolu,SAN, has said his administration has resuscitated the Olusegun Agagu University of Science and Technology after eight years of abandonment by the previous administration.
Akeredolu stated this at the weekend at Igbotako in Okitipupa Local Government Area of the state.
It will be recalled that Dr Olusegun Mimiko ruled the state for 8yrs after Agagu exited office.
The governor said his administration had been able to drive through development in the institution with good road networks and regular payment of subventions.
He said his government had also been able to empower the University to complete three capital projects, all of which are ready for commissioning.
He said: ”we are concentrating more on our primary schools and luckily, it’s an Ikale woman that’s managing our State Universal Basic Education Board (SUBEB). Princess Oladunni Odu is the one managing our SUBEB And our ministry of education is being managed by an Ikale person, Femi Agagu.”
On the establishment of University of Fortune at Igbotako, the Governor said the establishment of the institution is geared toward the betterment of the society, adding that the state must encourage Ibrahim.
Akeredolu said: ”this initiative is not strange but we must finish this. What we have seen here is surprising and I can assure that I am overwhelmed and least expected what I have seen here.
“This is a great way to begin. Education is the bedrock of development. Without eduction we are going no where. Education is key.
“Your investments, we know. Especially in the oil and gas, insurance, hotels , you have investment virtually everywhere. What you are building here is far more than what you have outside. You will succeed.”
