The numerous Oyo state students have said they would only vote for a governorship candidate who presents a workable plan for qualitative education in the state.
In a statement, on Thursday by the National Association of Nigerian Students (NANS), in the state asked all the candidates to present their plans for free and qualitative education in the state.
NANS State Chairman, Moronkola Teslim, said it is important for anyone who is preparing to govern Oyo state to have workable plans on providing qualitative education to students.
He said the education sector in Oyo state faces problems ranging from incessant strike by workers especially Ladoke Akintola University of Technology (LAUTECH) co-owned with Osun state, poor physical infrastructures and other facilities and general poor funding.
“It is high time we accessed their plans on Oyo state education, which is the most sacrosanct to us and as a result will help us in determining the candidate to follow among them,” he stated.
Also, Teslim said that students in the state have suffered a lot in recent times.
“We cannot afford to be aloof while the process that will determine our future is going on. The good people of Oyo state should also be on the lookout and get ready to collectively make education available for all by making the best planner for education the governor of the state in the coming election as Nigerian Students will not hesitate to mobilize for such person in due time,” he added.
