The former governor of Edo Sate, Comrade Adams Oshiomhole, has acknowledged that the former President Goodluck Jonathan left a legacy in the education in the country.
Oshiomhole who said the project was mismanaged and mishandled after his exit, pointed out that the establishment of Almajiri schools across northern states was a major landmark policy that was designed to pull millions of Almajiri children out of the street and return them to classrooms for human capital development.
The former governor who said this in his remark at the maiden edition of memorial lecture in honour of late Captain IdahosaOkunbo, in Abuja, on Saturday, assured Jonathan that he will be greatly remembered for all the good things he did for Nigeria during his time as the President.
“You tried your best and left good legacies. Nigeria is not in short supply of good and transformational policies, but all we lack is the political will to do things that would improve the standard and cost of living in Nigeria”. He noted.
He, however, confirmed that politics was responsible for the failure of Jonathan to be re-elected in 2015, and people should accept that fate, and also commended him for coming to deliver the memorial lecture in expression of his love and friendship for the late Captain Idahosa.
He encouraged the family of late Captain Idahosa Okunbo to continue the good works of their late father, and possibly surpass him.
