According to him, “Ansaru-Deen Society Grammar School is the only Muslim Secondary School in Ile-Ife, so the welfare and standard of the school must be prioritized in terms of infrastructure and other essential materials to aid conducive atmosphere and efficient learning for our children.

“That is why we are calling on all well-meaning individuals to join hand with us to guarantee a better future for our children”, he said.

The Chairman also called on Ife Ooye Local Council Development Area to quickly look into actions of some people in the neighbourhood, who are fond of throwing faeces into the school premises from the fence.

He said, such acts may result in Cholera and other epidemic for the innocent students.

Alhaji Lawal also raised concerns about records of some miscreants who usually jump over the fence into the school to smoke Indian Hemp and for other unlawful activities.

He maintained that posterity would not forget useful contributions of all the people to safeguard the future of the students, warning that any culprit caught would be made to face the full wrath of law

“This is our alma mata, we cannot fold our arms while the students of the school or the school itself are lagging behind in terms of standard, security and needed infrastructures*, he Lawal said.

Pensioners Collapse During Screening In Osun

…Govt should decentralise process to prevent avoidable deaths – Retirees

Pensioners in Osun State have appealed to the State government to decentralise the ongoing screening of its workforce including retirees.

The call became necessary as some of the aged retirees collapsed on Monday within the premises of the Center for Black Culture and International Understanding, Osogbo, venue of the ongoing screening.

It took the intervention of the medics of the State Ambulance Service to revive and stablise the victims.

Retirees, numbering about 2,000 old men and women who are visibly aged, frail and in some cases sick, were at the venue for the screening exercise.

A number of them who could not withstand long time standing were seen either, lying down, sleeping or sitting on the bare floor to avoid eventuality.

Many of the pensioners were visibly angry for what they described as inhuman treatment by the handlers of the exercise.

Sunday Omotosho decried the arrangement and the eventual treatments of his colleagues who came for the exercise from across the State.

Though, he agreed that the exercise as sanctioned by the State government was desirable, but was of the opinion that the process would have been made easier if it were to be done on local government or zonal basis.

As at press time, the exercise was yet to commence as the consultant in charge, Saadat Bakri-Ottun was yet to arrive the venue, hence the wait prolonged.

The staff audit was earlier suspended for weeks by the state House of Assembly over inhuman treatment meted to the civil servants by the consultant, but the suspension was lifted after she promised to correct her mistakes.
