Unlike Senator Heineken Lokpobiri, Professor Claudius Daramola was met with quite a number of questions mostly bordering around the dilapidated Educational sector of the country. From Strikes, to cultism as well as quality of teachers and the standard of Education, the Ondo State nominee proved his years of experience in education.
There was however a bone of contention with the proof of State of origin as raised in a question to which the nominee replied “Go to the Usman Danfodio Uiversity, when you get to the Faculty of Education, mention my name and they will tell you I’m from Ondo state.”; a reply which left the house in stitches.
Here are some of his quotes from his screening:
- “We have systemic problems in our educational sector”
- “On Cultism, you rarely find children of the poor as cultists, most of them are from comfortable families”
- “We have to train and retrain teachers. and most importantly, teachers have to be paid regularly”
Prof. Daramola will no doubt make an efficient Minister of Education.
