The Oyo state House of Assembly has called on the executive arms of government to accredit more courses in the state owned tertiary institutions.
Why presenting the motion on the need to put measure in place for the accreditation of more courses in some state owned tertiary institutions, the Deputy Speaker, Hon. Mohammed Fadeyi, commended the efforts of the present administration led by Gov. Seyi Makinde towards upgrading and repositioning education in the state.
According to him, the 2020 education budget is 23.37% out of the total budget estimated for the state, noting that it is the highest in the history of the State.
He further maintained that, it has become imperative to bring to the notice of the honorable house, the need to take measure and put in place the accreditation of more courses in some states owned tertiary institution like college of education, Lanlate that has twenty-four (24) departments whose courses are due for accreditation since 2018.
“That basic facilities, adequate personnel and learning aids are needed and required for the teaching and learning of students while accreditation of courses in some of the institution are inadequate and in some cases lacking some facilities.
“That failure to proffer solutions to the challenges of inadequate basic learning facility that is, lecture rooms, teaching aids, personnel (most especially teaching staff) and accreditations will impact negatively on the products of those institutions and the educational development and repositioning agenda of the present administration.” Hon. Fadeyi added.
