“Resumption comes with individual nostalgia and hope for another exciting 12 weeks, which will come via knowledge sharing.”

• January 9, 2023

The commissioner for education in Lagos, Folasade Adefisayo, has charged students across the state to improve on their academic successes in the new year.

Ms Adefisayo gave the charge in a statement on Sunday ahead of the second term resumption of the 2022/2023 academic sessions resumption which begins on Monday.

According to her, this will justify the government’s huge investment following the promise to bequeath a qualitative, inclusive educational legacy to empower you to compete as global citizens.

“I enjoin you to strive and rise to greatness with the opportunities provided through quality education, show your ingenuity and creativeness and continue to be receptive to digital learning,” stated the education commissioner. “It is also expected that you will all aim higher for a better performance in the last two terms of the 2022/23 academic session.”

Ms Adefisayo noted that the “resumption comes with individual nostalgia and hope for another exciting 12 weeks, which will come via knowledge sharing and guidance of our hardworking teachers.”

She noted that some students had the opportunity and participated, won in national, international events in science, technology, education and mathematics competitions, giving them global exposure to become future scientists.

“Majority of you made us proud in 2022 individually as a pupil/student or as representatives of your various schools; we are also excited that you all remain receptive to all our interventions and initiatives in the education sector,” said the commissioner.

Ms Adefisayo explained that Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu’s passion for the development of quality education had been shown and reflected through various students and teachers centered initiatives.

“His passion for quality education is visible through over 1,400 projects in all our schools across the state, some of you are witnesses to the commissioning of major landmark projects either by the governor or his representatives,” added the education commissioner.
