Fayose: Practical Politician, Says Afe Babalola

Renowned lawyer, Aare Afe Babalola (SAN), has described Ekiti State Governor, Mr Ayodele Fayose, as a practical politician who does not promise what he cannot fulfill.
Speaking in Ikere-Ekiti during the convocation of the College of Education, the founder of Afe Babalola University, Ado-Ekiti (ABUAD), said Fayose could also be relied on.

In a statement yesterday by the governor’s Chief Press Secretary, Mr Idowu Adelusi, Afe also lauded the governor for his support for the college and his untiring efforts at repositioning education in the state.

“I love Governor Fayose because he is a very practical person and dynamic. When he says he wants to do something, consider it done. He is a rare breed of politician. A former governor of Niger State said politicians must lie to be a good ones, but Fayose doesn’t lie.

“That is why he won his election in all the local government areas of the state and won subsequent elections in a similar manner. I also appreciate his love for education and his determination to reposition I in the state,” he said.

Babalola, who is a fellow of the college, said to have quality education, there must be good teachers.

“You can’t give what you don’t have. We need more teacher training colleges in this country. When the late Chief Obafemi Awolowo wanted to start his free education policy, the first thing he did was to establish teacher training colleges.

“I suggest that lecturers in universities must have background in teaching as well. That is done worldwide and it will improve the standard of education in our country,”.

In his speech, Fayose urged the management of the college to look inward and find means of generating more funds for the running of the school.

He promised to use his contact to get wealthy individuals and corporate bodies to assist the college in the provision of facilities.
