The monarch said his people wanted Amosun’s government  to take over the only public school in Ibara-Orile, which he  said was  being funded by the community  and give them good roads.

The Olubara, an associate of former President Olusegun Obasanjo, spoke at the commissioning of  two science  laboratories donated to  Ajiboyede Comprehensive High School  in Ibara-Orile in Abeokuta North local government area of the state by a former member of House of Representatives, Mr. Lanre Laoshe.

The royal father, who lamented that past governments had abandoned his people in Ibara-Orile, said he believed  that Amosun’s second term would consolidate his achievements he had started.

The monarch, who commended the donor for spending about N15 million on the community  school through payment of the salaries of the teachers and renovation of  some buildings in the school, urged the government to take over the school for more attention.

According to him, ”21 years ago,  when I became an Oba, our people clamoured  that they wanted a school in Ibara-Orile and after we got it, rainstorm blew off the roof.”

“All Ibara sons and daughters donated to the renovation  of the school. The former Chairman of the council, Habib Ajayi did his best,  but, when Hon.Lanre Laoshe  intervened , he changed the status, he has spent N15 million so far on the school.

“We have  begged past governments, they did not respond. I had written to this government twice,  the commissioner has promised to assist. I will phone the governor to take over the school.

“This government will do it for us if we vote for it . If we allow Amosun to be re elected,  he will give us  good roads and schools.

“We will give you our votes if you give us our request,  we want this school   to be taken over and good roads .

The commissioner for Education,  Segun Odubela who commended the donor assured the monarch and the community that the government would take over the school that had been run by the community.
