President of Latter Rain Assembly, Pastor Tunde Bakare on Tuesday described the Ondo State Governor, Dr. Olusegun Mimiko as a perfect replica of the late Chief Obafemi Awolowo in the area of educational development of children in the State.
According to Bakare, there is a great future in Ondo State with the children of the rich and the poor attending the Mega Primary Schools built across the state by Governor Olusegun Mimiko.
He declared this as the Special Guest of Honour at the commissioning of St James' CAC Caring Heart Mega Primary School, Irowo, Akure.
Bakare who said his mind was blown away seeing what looked like a University campus structure commissioned as Primary School, said he had never seen any Mega Primary School like this in any of the South West states.
He commended Mimiko for not allowing his mind to shrink even after the November 26, 2016 Gubernatorial election in Ondo State adding that it is only God that can reward him.
He said; "I had been to Lagos, Oyo, Ogun, I need not bother to go to Osun and I had not been to Ekiti State. Nothing like this in any other states in the South West."
Commissioning the project, Governor Mimiko said Mega Primary Schools constitute a deliberate investment in education to tackle inequality in the society and ensure social integration in the society.
He said Nigerians pay heavily to get education for children in foreign land because he said what ought to have been done was left undone in the area of education saying that the best that can be done for our society is to ensure that the right investment in education is put in place
The Deji of Akure Land, Oba Aladetoyinbo Ogunlade Aladelusi, said Governor Mimiko paid special attention to Akure Mega City apart from developing all nooks and crannies of Ondo State adding that Akure and the entire people of Ondo State will ever be grateful to Governor Mimiko even after leaving office.
In their goodwill messages, Ondo State Chairman of Nigeria Union Of Teachers(NUT) and Parents Teachers Association (PTA), Messrs Oladele Akoko and Chief Abimbola Omoloja commended the initiative of Governor Olusegun Mimiko in building Mega Primary Schools across Ondo State.
