Idiat AdebuleOutgoing Lagos State Deputy Governor, Dr Idiat Adebule has said she never expected to be chosen for the position.

She revealed this during the farewell ceremony organised for her by the State Ministry of Education at Alausa, Ikeja.

Her words, “I am just grateful, because it is not by my pedigree, my qualifications or any of my making, but by God’s favour and Grace.

“I thank my party, the All Progressives Congress Party (APC) and Asiwaju Bola Tinubu for finding me worthy, because it was even rumoured at that time that a man would emerge as running mate.

“I had never, in my wildest dreams or imaginations, thought that I would be considered for the position of the deputy governor. I will always treasure the privilege.”

“I did not achieve a smooth tenure as a deputy governor and the commissioner for education, the Permanent Secretaries, Tutor Generals and the education families were my partners in progress.

“I’m proud of the ministry of education I will be leaving behind. We are not where we are supposed to be, but with improved policies, our education system will be better.

“I urge the education ministry to carry on the positive legacies and continue to improve on the education system of the state, “

“As a professional, she facilitated the review of the education policy of the state to take care of the current realities.

“We witnessed infrastructure development in our schools that ensured conducive teaching and learning environment.

“We will miss you, but we promise to continue to improve on the education sector so that we can compete globally.”
