No to privatisation of public schools in Osun state – Comrade Oladapo

…Says act is barbaric

The Coordinator of Freedom Youth Frontier Ilesha East, Comrade Alapa
Oladapo has berated the Governor of Osun State,  Ogbeni Rauf
Aregbesola over privatisation of schools in Osun State.

He said the move is not only retrogressive, anti-people but barbaric.

Comrade Clinton was reacting to a recent advertisement by the state
government calling on interested individuals, groups and communities
for the take over of public schools in Osun.

He said it is unacceptable for government to release the schools, if
according to official record, a mega school is constructed with a huge
amount of 310 million, in addition to procuring13 billion Naira in the
construction of mega schools across the State.

Comrade Clinton warned that as the organised labour in the educational
sector in Oyo State recently kicked against the privatisation of
public education, the people of Osun shall also resist the move.

He urged those in authorities to emulate the founding fathers in
Nigeria politics.

“The set of people who are attempting to wear Awolowo glasses do not
have his vision, they attempt to wear his cap, but do not have his
brain. They attempt to wear his shoes but do not walk in his ways.
Awolowo introduced free education, not this kind of fraudulent

Alapa Oladapo who happens to be the former Student Union Government
Vice President, Osun state Polytechnic Iree further explained
“education is the right of every Child and not a privilege.”
“Article 6 of the 1984 Universal Declarations of Human Rights

, everyone
has the right to education

“Many Nigerians had struggled to acquired education to the highest
level even before the formal imposition of colonial rule,” he said.

Comrade Clinton however commended the actions of the organised labour
in Oyo State over the attempted privatisation of public schools.

He thereby charged the Osun Labour Leaders to shun the habit of
keeping mute in the face of injustice.
