Oyo Govt's Park Management System Unconstitutional, Threat To The State Security: Folarin

The gubernatorial candidate of the All progressives Congress, APC, Senator Teslim Kolawole Folarin has said that the Park Management System in Oyo State brought in by Governor Seyi Makinde Administration is unconstitutional and a threat to the state security.

Sen Folarin  made this known on Tuesday evening while speaking at a round table discussion tagged"Guest Forum" organized by the correspondent's chapel of Nigeria Union of Journalists, NUJ, Oyo State Council.

 Folarin, who is a serving senator representing Oyo central at the upper chamber, said that one of his agenda is to reduce the level of crime by replacing PMS with NURTW because it is the one recognised by law.

He said a situation where motor parks and garages are better than our school is uncalled for.
Folarin pinpointed that a situation where about 50 schools were delisted by West African Examination Council, WAEC, over examination malpractices does not portray the pacesetter appellation of the state.
Folarin said,"PMS is unconstitutional and it is alien to the law". If by God's grace, on my first day in office, I will replace PMS with NURTW. I don't have any fear over NURTW, it will only bring more income to the government. 

Thirty-three out of thirty-six state of the federation in education ranking is so bad. The first is to declare a state of emergency in education and other sectors.
"It is only in Oyo State that Motor parks and garages are better than schools. A situation where by Motor parks are built with 4.5 Billion Naira   and our schools are dilapidated, this is unacceptable.

At the round table discussion were some APC chieftains , among whom were Alhaji Sina Alabi, Alhaji Kehinde Olaosebikan a k a K.O and the chairman of the correspondent's chapel, Mr. Raji Adebayo.

In his statement, the chairman of the correspondent's chapel, Mr. Raji Adebayo explained that this round table discussion, Guests Forum, was part of his campaign promises to make the chapel great.

Raji said," Today is a fulfilment of one of the promises made while campaigning that I will make the correspondent's chapel great and vibrant with the calibre of people that would be featuring on this forum, and here we are, with the help of God Almighty and good people like Alhaji Kehinde Olaosebikan, who is not only my personal person but a big boss, YSO Olaniyi , media aid to senator Folarin and my good friend, Wasiu Olawale Sadare who was my class and course mate at the polytechnic, Ibadan, who is now the APC publicity secretary in Oyo State" he concluded
