Education, Essential Tool For Building Future Leaders- Gov. Oyetola
Osun state governor, Mr Gboyega Oyetola says his Administration considers education and moral standing as essential tools for building leaders of tomorrow.
Governor Oyetola stated this while laying the foundation stone of the proposed Minaret International University in Ikirun, Ifelodun Local Government Area of the State.
The governor who described education and religion as timeless and potent instruments for the development and transformation of society, said his administration has been providing qualitative, functional and affordable education for the children at all levels.
Commending the leadership of Ahmadiyya Muslim Jama’at for its decision to build a university in the State, Mr Oyetola noted that the establishment of the new citadel of learning would further contribute positively to the educational development in the State.
He said the institution when completed would further help to propagate morality and ethics expected of noble citizens as its contribution to building a peaceful, competitive and prosperous Osun.
Earlier, the National Head, Ahmadiyya Muslim Jama’at of Nigeria, Alhaji Alatoye Folorunso Azeez, appreciated the unflinching support received from the State government towards the actualisation of the foundation laying of the project.
Alhaji Azees said the leadership of the Muslim organisation was resolute to build an innovative university with a difference and compete favourably with its counterparts across the globe in line with international best practices.
