The governorship candidate of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) in the June 18, 2022 governorship election in Ekiti State, Hon Bisi Kolawole, has promised to return the glory of the state in the education sector.
Kolawole, said in a meeting with a group of retired Secondary School teachers in Ekiti State on Monday, that it was worrisome that Ekiti State that came first in National Examination Council (NECO) Senior Secondary School Certificate Examination in 2016 and 2017, came 9th in 2020.
According to a statement by the Bisi Kolawole Campaign Organisation (BKCO) Spokesman, Lere Olayinka, the PDP governorship candidate assured that Ekiti State would return to the top position in education as it was during the PDP government of Ayodele Fayose.
Kolawole said, “Even the performance of the state in West Africa School Certificate Examination (WASSCE) has not improved from the 11th position that it moved to in 2016 from 34th position that it was in 2014.
He assured that “teachers in the state will be adequately motivated, with their welfare prioritized as it was during the government of ou leader, Ayodele Fayose.”
