School's resumption: Lagos Dep Gov tasks students on hard work, good morals

As public schools in La­gos State resume for the 2015/16 second term academic session today, Lagos State Deputy Governor, Dr Idiat Oluranti Adebule, has commended principals, teach­ers and schools administrators for helping the government to implement policy-yielding changes in public schools across the state.
According to a statement from her office on Sunday, Dr Adebule called for double ef­forts in the New Year for im­provements in students’ per­formances in all examinations. This, she said, is to justify gov­ernment’s huge investment in the sector.
She said this objective is achievable when teachers and school administrators re-dedi­cate themselves to the ethics of the teaching profession, make education interesting and in­spiring to their students.
“We have the unique respon­sibility to be the prime change agents our dear state needs in order to become a better place to live and work. All we need is to re-dedicate ourselves to the ethics of the profession and make education interesting and inspiring again”, she said.
“As I welcome you back to school, we need to walk togeth­er to our destination which is to be an excellent model for education in Nigeria and the whole of Africa”, she said, adding that this can only be achieved when all stakehold­ers re-dedicate themselves and take ownership of government vision in the overall interest of the students.
