The Managing Director, Schoolsmart Online Science and Mathematics Service, Mr Sanni Adedokun has appealed to Nigerian Governments to support Academic excellence that would improve quality of education in the country. 

He stressed the need for all levels of government, especially federal, state, local governments to support every aspect pertaining to improvement of academic excellence more than any other industry to enhance the quality of education.

Adedokun made the appeal during the presentation of gifts to winners of 2021 Schoolsmart Competition Edition in Ota, Ogun State. 

The competition was organised in collaboration with Vono Furniture Products Ltd.

St. Benedict Genius Garden Schools, came first, Jacob Model International schools, took second position, while Ambassador International schools, took third position. N50,000, N30,000 and N20,000 were given to the winners respectively.

The educationist said: “Academic attainment or excellence is not appreciated in Nigeria as much as music and sports Industry. The competition which meant for primary schools was approved by the Ogun State Ministry of Education. It was set up to improve innovations of students across the country, and about 50 private primary schools applied for the competition." He said.

According to Adedokun, the organisers decided to make the competition online due to the current Covid-19 pandemic, saying motive behind it was to prepare the students ahead of the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB).

The educationist enjoined school owners to approve the use of mobile phones for students at all levels to enhance proper research and improve their knowledge. 

He urged the students to be focused and self motivated, adding that they should not be distracted from their studies. While calling on parents to ensure proper monitoring their children/wards as regard the use of phones.

In his remarks, Operations Manager, Vono Furniture Products Ltd, Mr Raji Shina, said they decided to collaborate with Schoolsmart Online Services, as a way of giving back to the society.

Shina said: “It is our little way of investing in our children because they are the leaders of tomorrow.”

He advised the students to be disciplined and dedicated to their studies in order to achieve their goals.

The winner of the competition, Lateef Badmus, a student of St. Benedict Genius Garden Schools, who spoke on behalf of the others two runners up said he was delighted to come first in the competition.

Badmus commended the organiser for organising such educative competition, while urging them to continue to organise programme and competition that would enhance the knowledge of the students.
