Kamarudeen Ogundele, Ado Ekiti
Principals, parents and teachers in Ekiti State have
commended Governor Ayodele Fayose for the
success of the state’s candidates in the just
released results of the 2016 National Examination
NECO recently released the results of the Senior
School Certificate Examination it conducted
between June and July this year, with Ekiti State
topping others with 96.48 per cent followed by Edo
State with 96.31 per cent.
Various groups, including the All Nigerian
Conference of Principals of Secondary School, the
Positive Minds and Parent Teacher Association of
Nigeria, on Tuesday said the education policies in
the state aided the achievements.
They commended the governor for fully
implementing the recommendations of last year’s
Education Summit held in the state.
Speaking first during the courtesy call on the
governor, the Ekiti State Chairman of ANCOPPS, Mr
Biodun Omotosho, said the governor’s
commitment to improving the sector really paid
“Before Governor Fayose came back, there was a
policy mistrust between teachers and the
government. We were not sure of whether our jobs
would be taken from us, but you came to office
and gave us hope and rest of mind. Today, we are
seen as partners not as mere employees that could
be thrown away like refuse,” he said.
