The Oyo State Commissioner for Health, Dr. Azeez Adeduntan and his counterpart from the Ministry of Agriculture, Prince Oyewole Oyewumi have charged parents and guardians to always give priority to their children’s education, as it is remains the only instrument that can liberate them from future challenges.
They gave the charge during the annual end of the session party of Mahnatez International School, Oluyole held at the school premises on Thursday, 19 July, 2018.
Dr. Adeduntan, while speaking at the glamorous
event that had in attendance many of Governor Abiola Ajimobi’s aides, commended Hajjia Bolatito Adebisi, who is the Proprietress of the school and Senior Special Assistant on Education for complementing governments’ efforts, both state and federal by nurturing the future leaders of the nation.
He called on other well meaning Nigerians who have wherewithal to assist government in their capacity to lift the burden of education which is too heavy for government alone to carry.
Prince Oyewumi urged parents to inculcate the habit of right values and virtues embedded in the Yoruba culture and language in their children in order to be good ambassadors of their families.
In his welcome address, Hajja Adebisi expressed her happiness over the achievements the school has recorded in the last six years of its establishment; she attributed this to the tremendous support she enjoyed from her husband, Engr. Lanre Adebisi, the indefatigable parents and ever conscious staff of Mahnatez International School.
Grandma Adebisi as she is fondly called by her students emphasized that she will not relent in giving her best to ensure that the school continue to raise young leaders that will take up the responsibility, speak out and strive for excellence in their career.
While admonishing parents to ensure quality basic education for their children irrespective of gender, Hajjia Adebisi noted that all hands must be on deck to make education accessible to all and sundry.
