Those asking Aregbesola to resign over WAEC results ignorant —Osun govt

The Bureau of Communication and Strategy, Office of the Governor of Osun State, on Wednesday, described those calling for the resignation of Governor Rauf Aregbesola over the last ranking of the state in the West Africa Examinations Council (WAEC) as naive and ignorant of statistics.

It said the call stemmed from the usual lack of knowledge of performance charts and attention to details that the opposition elements are notorious for.

In a statement signed by the Director of the bureau, Mr Semiu Okanlawon, the government stated that records and statistics of students put forward by the state in the past years have shown improvement in the percentage of overall results.

It noted that Aregbesola’s administration’s efforts and intervention in education had been massive and that there had been qualitative and quantitative improvement in the performance of pupils and general education of youths.
