Governor, State of Osun, Adegboyega Oyetola, said on Wednesday, 29 July, 2020 that the State was well positioned to host one of the six Girls Military Schools, which the Nigerian Army plans to establish across the six geopolitical zones of the country.
This is also as the Governor named the ancient town of Ede in particular as the most suitable community to host the school.
Oyetola disclosed this while receiving an eight-man delegation of high-ranking officers of the Nigerian Army, led by the Chief of Standard and Evaluation, Major General Francis Azinta, during a courtesy visit in his office at the Governor’s Secretariat, Abeere, Osogbo.
The delegation, it was gathered was on an inspection tour of the State.
Oyetola, who described Ede as a secure and peaceful community, with highly friendly and accommodating people, maintained that the government would not have to go through the stress of looking out for a virgin land to site the school, adding that the Command School in Ede town would be a good host.
The Governor was joined by his Deputy, Mr. Benedict Alabi; Chief of Staff, Dr. Charles Akinola; Commissioner for Education, Folorunso Oladoyin; Special Adviser to the Governor on Education, Mr. Jamiu Olawumi; and the Special Adviser on Public Health, Siji Olamiju.
