IBADAN— GOVERNOR Abiola Ajimobi of Oyo State has said it would not be out of place to describe most secondary schools in the state as “recreation centres for villagers just coming into town” due to their dilapidated conditions.
He said the secondary schools were not worthy to be regarded as such.
Ajimobi said this yesterday in his office during the courtesy visit paid on him by Queens’ School Old Girls Association, QSOGA.
The governor was attesting to the complaints of the association that some buildings in the school needed urgent attention.
The association was led by its President, Adebola Williams.
Ajimobi said: “We are unhappy about their level of dilapidation. Some of them are no longer what we can call secondary schools, but recreation centres for villagers just coming into town”.
He lamented that it would be unforgivable for him and others to allow schools that had produced great men and women to go to the cemetery of “once before”.
