In a bid to create a "healthy competition" among students, Ogun state government has announced that the results of secondary school students will now be made public.
Governor Dapo Abiodun made the declaration through his special adviser on primary and secondary education, Ronke Soyombo, on Tuesday, June 2.
Speaking at a meeting with All Nigeria Conference of Principals of Secondary Schools (ANCOPSS) in Abeokuta, Soyombo said the move will promote discipline, moral and academic excellence in the state.
The governor's aide further stressed that this will in a way restore the glory of Ogun state known for producing some of the vibrant men in the country.
“Excellence and good discipline were the priority with healthy competitions amongst the schools back then.
“This is what the present administration is working to restore and we believe together we can bring the lost glory of our schools back. We are going to restore discipline, excellence and good morals to our schools.
“Results of our students will now be made public to foster more efforts and healthy competitions, security in schools will be heightened, school management and standards will take a new shape henceforth," she said.
Soyombo said Governor Dapo Abiodun-led administration is working assiduously to ensure that quality education is guaranteed for the students of the state.
