Oyo State Governor, Engr. Seyi Makinde, has been lauded for creating four additional zones for post primary school education administration in the state.
The new zones – Kisi, Iseyin, Ibadan II and IV came on stream in the last quarter of 2020, after Makinde approved their establishment to join the existing six in the state post primary school teaching service commission.
Commending the governor for the initiative, the Forum of Retired Permanent Secretaries (FOPSA), Schools’ Administration, described the creation alongside appointment of Permanent Secretaries/Tutors General for each of the four zones as another ingenious masterstroke by the Makinde administration at strengthening and uplifting standards not only in that tier, but also the education sector in the state generally.
The association in a statement jointly signed by its chairman, Chief A. A. Adelakun and secretary, Rev. Canon D. O. Makinde, also praised the governor for what they called his administration’s benevolence, humanity and regard for the welfare of workers and retirees, especially through prompt payment of their salaries and pensions.
It enjoined all public servants to reciprocate the gesture by improving on their productivity and giving loyal service.
