10% of annual budget will go to education, says Makinde

The Oyo State Governor, Seyi Makinde, on Thursday restated his government’s commitment to devote 10 per cent of the state’s annual budget to funding of education.

He gave the assurance when he received the Board of Trustees of Precious Cornerstone University, led by Gen. Oladayo Popoola (retd.), who was a former military administrator of the state.

Popoola, who is the Chairman, Board of Trustees of the PCU, accompanied during the courtesy visit by Pro-Chancellor, Dr Bayo Adegoke; Vice-Chancellor, Prof. Kola Oloke; a former Prelate of Methodist Church, Nigeria, Most Rev. Sunday Ola-Makinde; the Presiding Bishop of Sword of the Spirit Ministries/Chancellor, Bishop Wale Oke; Chairman, Christian Association of Nigeria, Oyo State, Pastor Benjamin Akanmu,.

Popoola said the PCU board paid the courtesy visit to congratulate the governor and enjoined him to facilitate the release of Certificate of Occupancy of the university’s site.

Ola-Makinde led other ministers of God in the team to pray for Makinde to be successful in office.

Makinde, in his address, described education as the bedrock of development, saying his administration planned to open up every sector in the state.

“This visit is instructive because it came at a time a university in Botswana plans to visit the state. We will ensure that the delegation from the university visits the PCU to establish a relationship that will impact meaningfully on the progress of Oyo State,” he said.
