OSUN HEAD OF SERVICE IDENTIFIES LOOPHOLE IN TEACHERS EDUCATIONAL INSTITUTIONS
Lack of educational law in the curriculum of teachers’ education has been identified as a knowledge gap in Nigerian education.
This observation was made by the State of Osun Head of Service, Dr. Olowogboyega Oyebade while receiving the Provost of his alma mater, Adeyemi College of Education, Professor Olukoya Ogen along with the national officers and State alumni members of the school.
While attributing the myriad of abuses in Nigerian Schools to took of knowledge on the basics of law, Dr. Ojebade submitted that when teachers are acquainted with educational law, they would be refined and become teachers.
He then admonished the authorities of Adeyemi College of Education to introduce it into its’ curriculum, explaining that it will make their programme enriching and promote the School as a model to other Colleges and Universities.
The Head of Service also called on the Federal Government to remove all legislative and legal hindrances in the way of turning the College to a full –fledged university, affirming that it is eminently qualified to be so, being one of the celebrated pioneers of good education in Nigeria.
Earlier in his congratulatory message to the new Head of Service, the Provost of Adeyemi College of Education, who was represented by his Deputy, Dr. Samuel Akintunde had described him as a beacon of light to the School, expressing the confidence that he would provide exemplary leadership.
The Provost, who later presented a congratulatory letter to Dr. Oyebade on behalf of the management Staff and students of the school, also gave a book and customised clothes.
The National Public Relations Officer of the Association, Mr. Yemi Olugbamigbe, who described Dr. Oyebade as a good ambassador of the College, also appreciated his dedication to service, commitment to self development and versatility which, he observed, had made room for him. He also presented a giant photograph of the Head of Service of him as gift from the national body of the association.
Also speaking, the State Chairman of the Alumni Association, Mr. Abiodun Oyemakinde, who described the new Head of Service appointment’s as well deserved solicited his support for active leadership participation not only at the state level of the Alumni but also at the executive committee of the association.
