- DAUD OLATUNJI

The Ogun State Governor, Dapo Abiodun, on Saturday, announced a change in the name of the Tai Solarin College of Education, Omu-ijebu, to Sikiru Adetona College of Science, Education and Technology.

Abiodun said he decided to rename the institutio­n after the Awujale of Ijebuland, whose efforts had enhanced teaching and studying of science and technology education in the state.

The governor, who spoke at the All Progressiv­es Congress campaign for the forthcomin­g council poll held at Odogbolu town, Odogbolu Local Government Area, noted that education had played an important role in the developmen­t of the state.

He said, “I am happy that today, no one is shooting. You can all see that the political temperatur­e of Ogun State is so low, there is rest of mind. No problem; we are all going about our work. All those involved in cultism should repent because if we catch them, they will face the full wrath of the law.

“I am setting up a special task force on cultism because we are working towards making this state the number one state in this country, and any attempt to undermine that by way of cultism is an act of sabotage and we will put an end to it.”
