Wow, this is wonderful; this shows that there is still hope for our educational system in this country. The students should keep it up.
This achievements demonstrated that the investments made by the state administration in the education sector have been productive, resulting in positive outcomes for the students involved.
Kudos to Anuoluwapo; we need our young students to emulate him so they can continue to make us proud. Kudos again
Congratulations well deserved to the pupils despite all negative things around some Nigerian still strive hard in putting the Nigerian name on a good map at all times I’m so proud of them and wish the representative best of luck…..
This is good news Nigeria is blessed with best brains. We should have been part of the most advanced countries of the world in technology, science etc. and not in criminality but bad governance, bad and selfish political leaders has brought us to where we are today.Look at this young chaps going to represent Nigeria in Switzerland it shows the stuff Nigeria is made up of. I won’t be surprise students perform beyond expectation. We want more of this kind of competition to encourage and bring out the best in our children. The are the leaders of tomorrow.
This is very good and I’m proud of the the school and the students who won the competition. They are putting their country and their state on a national map and that’s very profound. It shows we also take education seriously. I could imagine the number of candles those students burn to emerge victorious. They should be given national honour for representing the country in Switzerland.
It is a nice performance from the student and school this will motivate other stundent and school to improve the standard of their learning and teaching. Congratulations to the student that will be representing the face of Nigeria I wish the student all the best and good luck on their journey and thanks to them for making Nigeria proud
This is a prove that Nigerian have best brains in the world.We want more companies to encourage our youth by granting scholarships, do more of this kind of program,invest more in education sector when carrying out social responsibilities rather than in big brother Nigeria that will only corrupt our youth or wait for the government who will do nothing.
Let this be known that education is the key. We should celebrate both students for the achievement. Nigerian schools are outdated and lack technology yet we produce outstanding graduates. We should praise the teachers and lecturers in Nigeria who are responsible for this success. We can only hope that the government will fund our schools and pay our teachers and lecturers exactly what they deserve. We will cheer for our students to represents the country in solidarity and their families should be very proud of them. We wish you success in the competition.
Congrats, that was a good performance.
Education is the key and we also have educational problem because our government don’t care about what we think but I am happy this National Essay Writing Competition, won by (Oreoluwa) the student from Government College Ibadan, was set up by Human Capital Development for the June 2022 edition of the competition maybe this would make our government more attentive to the educational system of Nigeria
Congratulations to the students. No doubt Nigerians are intelligent. Kudos to their teachers as well. We hope the government can pay more attention to education.
It’s very good seeing some of the first secondary school performing excellently in competitions because most of them still have compitent teachers teaching them.But negligence of government is the major reason that is making parents to enroll their children in private schools.
I’m proud of the school and the students who won the competition. They should be celebrate!
This kind of competition and scholarship programs should keep flowing to encourage other students. Kudos!!!
This simply shows that Nigerians are not lagging behind when it comes to education. There no doubt that students are given quality education in the country. Congratulations to the winners
I’m proud of these students. Hopefully the government will commend their effort by giving them scholarship so as to make them do better.They are definitely going to make Nigerians proud
Good education system is one of the features that can be attached to Nigeria. The way teachers impact knowledge on students in this country can be compared to none. I commend the efforts of this student and I’m also proud of their teachers that provided guidance to them
Congratulations to the students, who have earned it after their hard work in putting the Nigerian name on a positive map at all times. Despite all of the unfavourable things going on around them, there are still some Nigerians who work very hard to do this. We’re so proud of them.
This is brilliant! Our students are actually outstanding academically. It’s just the lousy governance that fails us in this country.
The remarkable accomplishment that the kids have accomplished is being hailed as a warning of good fortune for the state of Oyo and the nation as a whole since it will increase our level of recognition on the international stage.
The excellent performance of individual students is evidence that the institution is providing a high-quality education, which will, in a relatively short amount of time, be reflected in the nation’s situation.
Because education makes a person civilised, polished, and cultured, the government ought to establish a framework to attain the educational objectives it has set for its pupils.
This is a testament to the fact that with more proper funding and the building of modern infrastructure, these students will achieve greater heights and continue to break more academic excellence that will bring us nothing but pride
We all should celebrate and commend the school and the winners in the contest. To encourage other students, competitions and scholarship programs of this like ought to continue.
I truly applaud the students, and I hope the government would recognize their efforts by awarding them scholarships to further their motivation. They undoubtedly have made Nigeria proud.
This is a great milestone set by those students, indeed Nigeria is home to resources.
This will also give us an head in the international bodies.
They deserve to be celebrated nationally
