    Why the renaming ceremony, he should have left the names as they were than trying to cause confusion. He should look for better things to do for Osun people than renaming institutions that have been named for decades

    How does he expect such certificate to be given international recognition when it has already be noted globally that standard of education in Nigeria is poor.

    What contributions did those that he renamed the institutions after make towards the advancement of education in Nigeria, particularly in their communities? The era of cronyism is over, Gov. Aregbesola. In advanced countries such as America, the best you can do for those who make substantial contributions to academic institutions or given scholarships to deserving students, is to name faculties or buildings after them, not change the name of an entire institution to please your allies.

    He shud leave it to be as before, I can’t let my children go to skul named afta someone, Ao can someone do wat please him just to satisfy his godfather not consider others future. They won’t recognize dia certificate like before, dey will tink its private now, instead of facing or finding solutions to the problem at hands. its not fair o

    This is total rubbish! Why renaming those institutions? What happened to the names they were having before? This is lack of knowledge of what he’s suppose to do in the state.

    My brother, this is absolute madness.He will soon
    rename the other schools like School of Nursing,
    Technical Colleges, Secondary Schools and Primary
    Schools in Osun State. Ogbeni has a first class in
    Renaming Science. The only person who is governing
    a state that is not among the recognized states in
    Nigeria, the State of Osun. I am sure the madness
    will end one day. Workers are hungry, you are
    dancing all around. Whatever has a beginning must
    have an ending. Prosterity is there to judge. Let us
    wait for what he will name in his name. This is sheer
    madness of highest order, my brother. I pray his
    colleague in Pacesetter state will not follow this
