  • Oyo state governor should personally look into the issue of strike embarked upon by the tertiary institutions in the state. Leaving everything to the commissioner of education may not yield results, as the issues has been with the commissioner for many months without headway.
    My take.

  • I wish the government resolved the issues this week so that those institutions can resume work by next week Monday, 12th April, 2021 for the stale students to complete their academic calendar and for new intake o commence their programs.
    My take.
