2Osun State Governor, Rauf Aregbesola, has said that era of unfit and dilapidated learning structures and schools had gone forever in the state.

Students in school uniforms, guardians and parents trooped out to witness the unprecedented commissioning of the new schools with state-of -the -art facilities.

The schools are Holy Trinity Middle School, Ikirun; NUD Middle School, Iragbiji and St Julius Middle School, Ila-Orangun, all in the Osun Central Senatorial District.

Built in this same structural pattern, the middle schools, with a capacity to accommodate 1,000 pupils, have 25 classrooms, one large exam hall. 16 toilets, one audio visual room, ICT room, recreation facilities among others.

Governor Aregbesola said with commissioning of the schools, government has raised the stake by putting education on a high pedestal.

He noted also that by the time all the new school building are completed no pupil or student in Osun will learn in a dilapidated and haphazard classroom again.
