Ogun Model College Shut Down, Students Moved To Other Schools

One of the two functioning Ogun State model colleges at Akinale near Abeokuta on the Lagos-Abeokuta Expressway has been shut down by the state government.

Students in the college, named Akin Ogunpola Model College, have been distributed to some of the other public secondary schools in the state.

The college is one of the model colleges established by the Amosun administration at a cost of over #15 billion which were never put to use for one reason or the other.

Rockcity FM gathered that the model college at Akinale was shut down over failure to enroll fresh pupils for the 2019/2020 academic session.

Most of the top aides of former Governor, Ibikunle Amosun had withdrawn their children from the college last term.

This development has affected the running and maintenance bills of the college.

Teachers employed for the model school resumed duty on Monday, for the new academic session, and remained in the school premises without students till mid-day.

The model college commenced operation in 2016 with sixty students admitted into the junior secondary school one and two classes.

According to the enquiry made by Rockcity FM in 2017, each pupil pays #400,000 per term, which was reduced to #150,000 due to poor patronage.

The only other model college now functioning at Kobape, had been converted by the Abiodun administration into an information communication technology hub.
