He insisted that government would  continue to build on the existing strong educational system in both public and private schools, to further sustain  excellence in the sector .

The Commissioner pointed out that  the operation ‘praise and shame’ would be a continuous process, in approving private schools 

His words,"We cannot but appreciate the contributions of the private school associations in Ogun State, as they consolidate on the principles, heritage, values and ideas which we are known for as a State and to put in force more synergy in moving the sector forward"

Arigbabu explained that the training would enable private school owners to be abreast of latest development which would equip participants with the knowledge, skills and right values, commending the efforts of the organisers for the laudable programme.
