The presidential candidate of the Labour Party, Peter Obi, congratulated some Nigerian students for performing exceptionally well in the 2023 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) and the West African Senior School Certificate Examination (WASSCE).
Congratulating the students for their outstanding performances on Twitter, Mr. Obi called on Nigerian leaders to invest more in education to improve the nation’s human capital.
” Nigeria surely needs to make more investments in education to enable other students to learn, grow and become better, academically and all around,” said the former two-term governor.
He added, “These outstanding performances once again reinforce my conviction that no nation can make meaningful progress unless it invests heavily in the development of its human capital through education.”
Mr. Obi celebrated the students for their efforts and the sacrifices they individually made to achieve such an academic feat.
He also appreciated the teachers and the schools behind the success of the students, as it is through their dedication to the growth of education the students were able to learn and grow.
“ I congratulate Miss Umeh Kamsiyochukwu Nkechinyere, Miss Amaechina Chibusonma, Master Oloruntola Mutiu Oluwaseyi, Miss Awofeso Aisha Omotola, Master Adesina Shalom Ololade, Miss Omoyeni Joy Folakemi, and many other young brilliant minds that we do not know yet, for their very exceptional and outstanding results in the Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) and the West African Senior School Certificate Examination (WASSCE) respectively.
“ According to reports, while Umeh Kamsiyochukwu got the highest score in UTME, Amaechina Chibusonma and Oloruntola Mutiu, Awofeso Aisha Omotola, Adesina Shalom Ololade, Omoyeni Joy Folakemi, and many others, all recorded outstanding results of Nine A1s in the 2023 WASSCE,” Mr Obi said.
Mr Obi envisioned a Nigeria where Nigerian students compete effectively with the best of their peers worldwide through adequate education.
