Stakeholders in the education sector Thursday charged the new Minister of Education with prioritising meeting Nigerians’ expectations.
Mr. Emmanuel Eze, the administrator of the Deeper Life High School, DHLS, Lagos Campus, announced this during a news conference on the academic achievements of the school’s students in public examinations.
Eze claimed that the country’s education sector is in disarray and that it need immediate intervention.
“If the education sector is fixed, everything else in the country will work perfectly,” he continued, “because the ministry is the foundation of everything.”
“Excellence is our culture in this school,” he remarked of the school’s success. We were able to accomplish this feat by the grace of God via severe hard work, discipline, and the God-factor. We have both planned and unstructured programmes in place to ensure that our students read and study on a regular basis.
“Aside from Miss Umeh Kamsiyochukwu Nkechinyere, the top scorer in the 2023 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME), some of our students also received eight As in their West African Examination Council exams.”
“In this school, we can confidently state that we have zero tolerance for malpractice.” That indicates that all of our kids took their exams without any assistance, which is a normal practice in many schools today. I am also pleased to inform you that 136 students attended our valedictory service earlier this month.”
