Some teachers who were instrumental to excellent performance of students of Education District I during the last West African Examinations Council, WAEC, have been recognised by the Tutor-General and Permanent Secretary of the Education District, Barrister (Mrs.) Margaret Titilayo Solarin.

Mrs. Solarin said the recognition was well deserved, adding that the teachers, against all odds and restrictions on the sector as a result of COVID-19 pandemic invested so much time and efforts in ensuring that the students performed excellently well during the external examinations.

The TG/PS disclosed that the teachers were commended to encourage their colleagues to go the extra miles in imparting knowledge to the students.

In her words: “We are using the opportunity of this event to encourage those being recognised to continue to be on the path of excellence, while we are also using it to challenge those who are not recognised this year to strive and perform better in the coming years”.

“I believe that this maiden edition of rewarding excellence will serve as a booster to the recipients and a challenge for other teachers to be recognised in subsequent editions”, Solarin reiterated.

She identified open recognition and acknowledgement of sterling performance as one of the ways of boosting teachers as well as students’ morale in forging ahead and recording consistent success, stressing that Education District I has institutionalised a reward system for its staff and students.

The Chairman of All Nigeria Confederation of Principals of Secondary Schools, ANCOPSS, Alimosho zone, Mr. Yemi Adeolu, appreciated all the teachers and charged them to continue to make the zone proud.

Speaking after the recognition, Mr. Lukman Savage, a Chemistry Teacher at Dairy Farm Secondary school, who spoke on behalf of others, applauded the Lagos State government and the leadership of Education District I for celebrating excellence, alluding that the gesture will serve as a catalyst to bring out the best in them subsequently.

The 46 recipients were recognised for their efforts after their students achieved 100% success in the 2020 WASSCE.

The Commander, U.S. Africa Command, U General Stephen Townsend, wrapped up a three-day West African visit February 22-25, 2021, with a stopover in Nigeria to meet with the nation’s leaders and further the long-standing partnership and security cooperation between the two countries.

A press statement by the Embassy on Friday, said: “During the visit, Townsend met with the Nigerian President’s Chief of Staff, Ibrahim Gambari, and National Security Adviser, Babagan Monguno, to discuss regional security issues and to express the command’s gratitude for the assistance provided during a hostage rescue operation last year.

“When we asked for their help, the Nigerian government answered the call. Our hostage recovery mission in October would have been impossible without their support.

“They quickly provided assistance that helped the U.S. military to save an American life. That is a strong example of our partnership with Nigeria.”

Townsend also met with senior military officials, including the Minister of Defence, Bashir Salihi Magash, and the Chief of Defence Staff, General Leo Irabor, to talk about on-going cooperation in the region and greater maritime security and threat mitigation.

Nigeria is a key partner in countering violent extremist organizations throughout the Lake Chad Basin.

Townsend said furthermore: “The bilateral relationship between Nigeria and the U.S. is built on several pillars including security cooperation.

“U.S. Africa Command will do our part to advance the security cooperation pillar, so that Nigerians can enjoy the more secure future they all deserve.”

As close partners, the U.S. and Nigeria have worked at ensuring the collaborative relationship continues to grow to include a commitment to interoperability. Nigeria purchased 12 A-29 Super Tucano light attack aircraft, which will be delivered later this year.

“Nigeria’s purchase of A-29 Super Tucano aircraft is another example of their commitment to interoperability and security in the region,” he added. “Our economic relationship with Nigeria is already strong, and we look forward to the continued strengthening of security relationships. Nigeria’s leaders understand the importance of a collaborative approach to ensuring stability in West Africa and partnering on areas of mutual interest.”

The Commander also met with the U.S. Ambassador to Nigeria, Mary Beth Leonard.

Leonard said: “General Townsend’s visit to Nigeria demonstrates the strategic importance the United States places on our bilateral relationship with Nigeria.

“Our security cooperation partnership with Nigeria’s military will strengthen the country’s capabilities to secure land and sea borders, enhance overall security, and combat terrorism in the North East.”

As part of the visit, Townsend participated in a wreath-laying ceremony at the Nigeria Military National Cemetery to honour those who have given their lives in the service of their nation.

During the visit, the delegation expressed their condolences for the seven service men killed in the crash of a Nigerian Air Force aircraft in Abuja.
