Aregbesola queries Osun education commissioner for absenteeism


Former Osun State Governor, Rauf Àregbesols, has queried the sitting Commissioner for Education, Oladoyin Bamisayemi, for failing to attend the inauguration of projects at a public school in the state.

The Interior minister blasted the commissioner for sending an aide to represent him knowing he will be present at the programme.

While registering his anger, Aregbesola said, on no condition should the commissioner of education be absent from the commissioning of projects under his ministry while a minister from the same political party was present.

“A minister came from Abuja to a state where our party is ruling to commission project for the ministry of education and the commissioner sent his Personal Assistant.

“This is really bad. Things shouldn’t have to go in this way. A minister from the same party…”
