  The commissioner explained that the governing boards were cancelled when the Ministry of Education discovered abnormalities in the system.

  “There were many irregularities that the ministry discovered. The ministry advised that we should stop it. They discovered some irregularities. But now, the state has concluded plans to reintroduce it. The ministry has studied it and is working on it”, Olatubosun noted.

  Olatubosun disclosed efforts the state government is making in curbing the menace of the kidnappers and banditry in the state.

  He revealed that there are ongoing efforts by the state government to get rid of kidnapping, banditry and other criminal activities in Onigari Axis of Lagos-Ibadan Expressway, adding that the state government is working with the Amotekun Corps just to ensure security in the state.

  Olatubosun said he had started what he called political evangelism to market Makinde and he would take the message to everywhere in the state.

  “We have enough achievements by the governor. In the health sector, we are building primary health centres in 351 wards; this will give people at the grassroots access to healthcare.
