Kola Oluwole, speaker of the Ekiti state house of assembly, has commended Ayodele Fayose, governor of the state and his deputy, Kolapo Olusola over the state’s excellent performance in the recently released National examinations Council, NECO, results.
Oluwole made the commendation in a statement signed by Stephen Gbadamosi, his special assistant on media on Friday. According to Oluwole, the performance of the state in the NECO, by coming first in two straight years was a confirmation that the achievement was not a fluke.
“When the state achieved that feat in 2016, some detractors thought it was a fluke. But those of us that took part in the education summit organized by His Excellency, the governor, Dr Peter Ayodele Fayose, shortly after he was sworn in as governor know what we input in the system. The repetition of the same feat this year shows that we have a solid and winning team,” the speaker said.
“I congratulate the governor and his deputy, Professor Kolapo Olusola, who supervises the education sector in conjunction with the
Commissioner For Education, Mr Jide Egunjobi. Our teachers have also done well. They have not let the investments of Mr Governor in their profession go unaccounted for. Kudos to them.
“I also commend our students, charge them to continue to take their studies seriously and justify our investments in them. Why congratulating the parents in Ekiti, I implore them to continue to support this administration and continue to key into its continuity agenda as developed by Governor Fayose. We must all realize that it is always counterproductive to change a winning team.
“I is our collective responsibility to put this state on the path of prosperity on all fronts. With God always on our side, I wish our state many more records of giant strides.”
