Lagos honours teachers, frowns at admission racketeering

THE Lagos State government, through its Ministry of Education, has honoured its staff, teachers and students at the 2016 Annual Education Merit Award, just as it frowned at admission racketeering and examination malpractice in her schools. Speaking at the 2016 edition of the awards, the deputy governor, who also oversees the state’s Ministry of Education, Dr. Idiat Adebule, said the awards are to reward hardwork and also motivate the staff and students to break new grounds and enhance productivity. Her words “Though we are here to honour our dedicated and outstanding staff and students, it is pertinent to clarify issues of admission racketeering and examination malpractice which have been bothering the state government. Collecting money from parents under the guise of offering admission to their wards or providing materials for the students is extortion and this administration is totally averse to it and is determined to eradicate both vices.”
