“So, the state-of-the art Ilesa Government High School which will be commissioned on Tuesday ‎also has modern facilities, including free internet, just like its counterparts in Osogbo.

“Our efforts at giving every child access to quality education have been yielding positive results since inception because it is on records that our administration met a deplorable education sector.

“When we assumed power in 2010, the schools were like zoos with dilapidated structures, deplorable facilities that cannot attract quality education, not to talk of producing versatile products.

“But we have taken education seriously. We have made education a non-negotiable priority in all we do. We have succeeded in our education reclassification and categorization as our schools today remain the model for all”, the commissioner also added in his speech that:



"While intimating the media on the importance of Omoluabi Cards which will be flagged off and distributed to members of the public who have been registered, particularly the pupils and students on the same day, Omotunde-Young said the initiative is to generate accurate documentation of the citizens in the state".

He also said that the initiative will help the state to have genuine statistics of the population of the people residing in the state for the purpose of development and transformation planning.


The State of Osun Commissioner for Education however disclosed that about two million citizens have been documented so far through the initiative.

Omotunde-Young said that: “the Citizen Identification Card popularly called “Kaadi Omoluabi” is to help facilitate proper citizen documentation, identification and development.

“It is designed to bring government closer to the citizens and as well make citizens to move closer to the government as the cards will give government insight into the essential needs of the populace”.
