The Yoruba monarch lamented that his town had, over the years, been marginalised in terms of federal presence.

Oluwo, in a statement he personally signed on Wednesday, urged Buhari to correct the wrong motive by locating a Federal College of Education in Iwo.

The statement read: “As at 1931, Iwo was the fifth largest town in Nigeria behind Ibadan, Kano, Lagos and Ogbomoso. All the others had reaped the benefits of their sizes with infrastructural facilities.

“Regrettably, despite the fact that Iwo is the most populous local government in Osun State, there is no federal institution in the town; a situation which has robbed the town of expected growth among the four named towns.

“It is disheartening watching those towns which were ranked alongside Iwo becoming mega cities with up-to-date amenities provided by the federal and state governments.

“I am not holding it against President Buhari’s administration of just five years. But I am now calling on him to use his good office to site the proposed Federal College of Education here in my town.
