Oyo Government Closes Illegal Higher Education Institution in Oke-Ogun | The Guardian Nigeria News
Yesterday, the Oyo State government ordered the immediate closure of Oke-Ogun College of Management Sciences and Technology, Iseyin.
The state commissioner for education, science and technology, Rahman Abiodun Abdu-Raheem, said the facility was closed for failing to follow check-in procedures.
Abdu-Raheem, while closing the college, urged school owners to always do the right thing in their quest to establish schools.
He said it would avoid unnecessary embarrassment for both the state and the owners.
The Commissioner had earlier last month invited and directed the owner of the College, Mr. Adewale Owoseni, to remove all notice boards with school registrations until the necessary is done.
He therefore affirmed the commitment of the state government to ensure due process in all affairs of the state.
It should be recalled that some natives of the town, under the auspices of “Ebedi Frontliner”, had petitioned the Oyo State Government, the Minister of Education, Malam Adamu Adamu and the National Council of Education. Technical Education (NBTE), claiming the institution was neither registered nor accredited to enroll students, among other allegations.
