While growing up, we learned education was the key to success and education shapes the young ones to become the leaders of the future. Education was the bedrock of our values and the conveyor of our destiny.
No wonder Ekiti, the reputed home of intelligentsia was aptly described as the Fountain of Knowledge. Sadly, the story has changed. At best, we now relish in the old glory. But all hope is not lost, we will re-write the story!
We shall focus on LEARNING OUTCOMES by promoting EQUITABLE ACCESS to QUALITY EDUCATION that promotes creativity, innovation and skills development. Our educational targets shall be economic productivity and sustainable livelihoods in Ekiti. We will place emphasis on critical learning and provide students with tools to acquire life skills through practical exposure to real life experiences and purposeful contact with entrepreneurship.
We will encourage innovation and put deliberate mechanisms in place to identify and promote talents.
My team and I will provide leadership for our mission to prepare Ekiti for the fourth industrial revolution: by creating a viable workforce, our young people, and produce the next generation of innovators from Ekiti educational institutions.
