A tertiary institution in Oke-Ogun, Iseyin, Oyo State accused of operating illegally has been shut down by the state government.

A statement issued on Tuesday by the Commissioner for Information, Culture and Tourism, Mr Wasiu Olatunbosun, disclosed that the school, Oke-Ogun College of Management Sciences and Technology, Iseyin, was ordered to be shut down with immediate effect.

The Commissioner said his counterpart in the Ministry of Education, Science and Technology, Mr Rahman Abiodun Abdu-Raheem, said the institution was shut down for non-compliance with registration procedures.

Recall that some indigenes of the town, under the auspices of Ebedi Frontliner, had petitioned the Oyo State government; the Minister of Education, Mr Adamu Adamu; and the National Board for Technical Education (NBTE), asserting that the institution was neither registered nor accredited for students’ enrolment among other allegations.

Mr Abdu-Raheem, while sealing off the college, urged proprietors of schools to always do the needful in their quests to establish schools, noting that this will avoid unnecessary embarrassment for both the state and the proprietors.

He had earlier last month invited and directed the proprietor of the college, Mr Adewale Owoseni, to remove all billboards with the inscriptions of the school until the needful is done.

The Commissioner, therefore, affirmed the state government’s commitment to ensure due process is followed in all affairs of the state.
