Wife of the Ogun State Governor, Mrs. Bamidele Abiodun has reiterated the present administration’s commitment towards revamping the education sector in the State.
Mrs. Abiodun stated this at the 2019 International Youth Day, organised by Junior Chamber International (JCI), held in Lagos, stressing the need for the reform of education in Nigeria to meet international standards and allow Nigerian youths to compete favourably outside the shores of the country.

Earlier in her welcome address, the National President JCI, Adetola Juyitan, acknowledged that youths were blessed with energy, creativity and untapped reservoir of talents, that could be positively utilised for self and national development, with a view to bringing quality leadership to bear.
She applauded the current trend of youth involvement and participation in the country’s polity, adding that the idea would bring about the needed change in several facets of the society.
Meanwhile, Wife of the Governor, Mrs. Bamidele Abiodun has congratulated members of the Girls Guide Association of Nigeria (GGAN), on the centenary celebration of the organization in Nigeria, at the opening ceremony of a one week camping program, organised by the association, held in Lagos.
