Founder of Afe Babalola University, Ado-Ekiti, ABUAD, Aare Afe Babalola , SAN, has applauded Ekiti government’s efforts to reposition education in the state noting Governor Ayo Fayose’s zeal in that direction is commendable.
The renowned lawyer, who commented on the Education Summit organized by the state government, said a similar one organised during Fayose’s first term, really improved the standard of education in the state and catapulted it to among the best in the country.
Aare Babalola recalled that the governor organised a summit 12 years ago which yielded fruits as shown by the performance of students from the state in public examinations.
“I must say nobody must have any doubt about my position. I love this man; I love him because we have something in common. He’s a man of action. I love him because he’s a realistic man.
He’s dynamic, he’s fearless, and when he says yes it is yes, when he says no it is no, this man is energetic and you need an energetic person to carry out anything you want to do,” Aare Babalola said.
Speaking further on Fayose’s commitment to develop education, he said, “It was a success in education, and we saw it, when you come from 35th position to 7th, that is A+, you won A+ Fayose. What I will submit and add to what you did that time is to ask you to please replicate what we did that time for Ekiti in education and if you do that, all of us will have cause to thank you at the end of your term.”
Aare Babalola, who commended the energy and zeal with which the governor handles state matters, sought the cooperation of all with the governor to make Ekiti a pride of all.
The ABUAD founder also charged parents and guardians to be ready to sacrifice whatever it would take to give their wards quality education and to note that government alone cannot do everything, as citizens must offer their support.
