Oyo Govt. Shuts Down Illegal Tertiary Institution in Oke-Ogun
The Oyo State Government, on Tuesday, has ordered the immediate closure of Oke-Ogun College of Management Sciences and Technology, Iseyin.
The Honourable Commissioner for Education, Science and Technology, Barrister Rahman Abiodun Abdu-Raheem, said the institution was shut down for non-compliance with registration procedures.
Recall that some indigenes of the town, under the auspices of ‘Ebedi Frontliner’, had petitioned the Oyo state government; the Minister of Education, Mallam Adamu Adamu; and the National Board for Technical Education, asserting that the institution was neither registered nor accredited for students’ enrolment among other allegations.
Barrister Abdu-Raheem, while sealing off the college urged Proprietors of schools to always do the needful, in their quests to establish schools.
He said this will avoid unnecessary embarrassment for both the state and the proprietors.
Barrister Abdu-Raheem, had earlier last month, invited and directed the Proprietor of the College, Mr. Adewale Owoseni to remove all billboards with the inscriptions of the school, until the needful is done.
The Honourable Commissioner therefore affirmed the State Government’s commitment to ensure due process is followed in all affairs of the state.
