Best Graduating Student, Miss Mofiyinfoluwa Hannah Olasoko

The Award which was granted by Africa Brands Review, an Integrated Marketing Service Company in Africa, got its ratings from the 2014 WASSCE results. They compared how secondary schools across Nigeria performed and rated the Top 1000 schools in Nigeria, and thus granted the award in June 2015. The events brochure of the Africa TOP 1000 SCHOOLS AWARD is to be distributed to Embassies of various Africa countries and libraries of institutions of higher learning and blues chip companies, including free copies to all participating Schools in Africa. The Plague award which was granted based on standard criteria read ‘2015 Africa Top Schools Award Platinum Category’

 

Speaking at the valedictory ceremony, the Chairman Board of Trustees, Prince Bimbo Olashore, stated that being honored with the Platinum category award based on standard criteria, and top ten award based on WASSCE results, gives credibility and validation to the efforts of the staff and students in taking the school to its career peak. His words: “Awards are good. When we do things here, we don’t do them for the purpose of awards, but awards are validation of some of the things we stand for. We believe in academic excellence. It’s the bedrock of what the school stands for. About 99.8% of our students get Cs’, while about 92% get As’ and Bs’. To us, this is already excellence. By the time we add other activities such as music, drama, discipline, leadership and the likes, we will be proud of ourselves. We didn’t apply for any award, they just wrote us a letter, and initially we were being skeptical, until they showed us results and proofs, so we agreed with them at least it was from an official source. We emerged one of the best international schools in Africa, but before qualifying for this, we first qualified as one of the top ten schools in Nigeria with 7th position to be specific. Being one of the top ten schools amongst about 11,000 schools sitting for WAEC gives us value to our certificates”.

 

The Principal also spoke on the award, he pointed out thus; “We’ve been recognized as one of the top ten schools in Nigeria, and this reminds us of our position and how academically successful we are.  We need to let everyone know we do a lot in Olashore and it keeps us out. There’s no school to compare, so if you want sustained academics and all round education, Olashore has it”. Read more

NAFDAC Warns Against Consumption Of Imported Chicken, Turkey and other Poultry Products

PRESS RELEASE:

nafdacAlthough imported chickens and turkeys have become status symbol in Nigeria, the National Agency for Food And Drug Administration And Control (NAFDAC) has come out to strongly warned against the consumption of imported or smuggled frozen poultry frozen meat, even as it has said that imported poultry products, especially chicken and turkey have been discovered to be causative factor in non- communicable diseases (NCDs) and antibiotics resistance.

Although NCDs are non-infectious but they are deadly. Health conditions under NCDs include cancer, kidney disease, and hypertension among others.

NAFDAC Director General,Dr Paul Orhii, who gave the warning at media briefing in Lagos, urged Nigerians to avoid imported smuggled chickens and turkeys, because they have been found to contain substances that can predispose one to kidney, liver and lung diseases as well as certain types of cancers and drug resistance- bacterial infections.

At the briefing, a study, titled “Prevalence, Quality and Acceptability of Frozen Poultry Meat in Major Cities in Nigeria” carried out by experts from University of Ibadan titled “, was presented.

Although imported foreign chicken, turkey and along with other frozen poultry meat have been banned by the Federal Government, some Nigerians have cultivated the habit of smuggling the banned poultry products into the country to the ‘delight’ of some Nigerians who do not know the health implications of consuming such products.

Orhii said that patronising smuggled poultry foods do not only encourage economic sabotage, but also can damage peoples’ health.

Orhii added that the studies have found out that most of the smuggled chicken into Nigeria contains high level of various deadly contaminants.

Orhii said: “Our studies have found that most of these smuggled chickens or smuggled poultry products, may be because the way they are transported or because they are not properly packaged, they contain some contaminants.

It can be formaldehyde, at times it can be high level of antibiotics residue and other contaminants like heavy metals. “And that is why we are discouraging members of the public from consuming them.

We are particularly concerned about the high level of antibiotics residue, because these can cause drug resistance, resistance to antibiotics.”

Orhii added that NAFDAC would begin strict enforcement of the ban on imported poultry products. Read more

Akinwunmi AmbodeLagos State Governor, Mr Akinwunmi Ambode on Thursday declared Friday, June 12 as a Work Free Day in commemoration of the annulment of the June 12 1993 elections which was presumed to have been won by late Chief Moshood Kashimawo Abiola.

In a statement signed by the Chief Press Secretary to the Governor, Mr Habib Aruna, the Governor said the date marked a watershed in the annals of transparent, free and fair elections in the country.

He said June 12, 1993 was the day Nigerians voted in one voice across ethnic, racial and religious lines, saying it represented the real democracy day when Nigerians said no to voting along ethnic lines.

Chief-MKO-AbiolaThe Governor said regrettably, 22 years after the annulment, the Nigerian nation is still grappling with some of the vices which the June 12, 1993 elections sought to confine to the dustbin of history through undue clinging to ethnic cleavages by some political gladiators.

He urged residents to spend the day in sober reflection and in remembrance of the martyrs of the June 12 elections struggle in prayers for laying the foundation of the democracy which the nation is now enjoying.
