The administration of Governor Biodun Oyebanji of Ekiti State has reaffirmed its goal of providing all children in the state with a free and high-quality public education.

During Wednesday’s 28th convocation ceremony at Ekiti State University (EKSU), Ado Ekiti, Oyebanji said this.

During the event, Dr. Tunji Olowolafe, the newly installed chancellor of the university, announced a N1 billion agribusiness empowerment fund to support the university’s products and improve agricultural output and food security.

Oyebanji, who is the first EKSU alum to serve as both governor and Visitor to the University, spoke during the graduation and emphasized that his administration is dedicated to making sure that the state’s schools can hold their own against the best in the world.

The governor boasted that his administration has renovated over 200 secondary schools, distributed laptops to students statewide, and provided bursaries and scholarships to students of Ekiti origin at universities as evidence of its dedication to improving the education sector from elementary to university level.

Noting that Ekiti recently had the highest school enrollment rate in the country, the governor said that his administration will make sure that not a single child in the state is not enrolled in school.

Oyebanji also encouraged the university administration to prove they were more dedicated to their job, cease the never-ending strikes, and keep the academic calendar operating smoothly to minimize unnecessary delays for students.

Oyebanji urged the graduates to always keep their alma mater in their hearts as he congratulated them.
