Muri-Okunola expressed conviction that the toll-free line (08001235553) and other educational materials that made the 10-in-1 projects delivered by the District would put the District on a pedestal that would be difficult to match within a short time.

He counselled the students to make use of the toll-free lines to interact with their teachers for improved academic performance just as he also urged parents and members of the public to engage the management of Education District II on how to improve the general state of schools within the District, using the dedicated toll-free line.

The Head of Service also called on the management of the District to create an enabling environment for those in the Guidance and Counselling Unit so that they can continue to strengthen and nurture school children on the path to success.

He commended the Tutor-General/Permanent Secretary (TG/PS) of District II, Mrs. Anike Adekanye, describing her as an administrator that can bring something out of nothing, adding that the numerous feats recorded by the District under her leadership attest to the fact.

“There is a general saying that when you give a big office to a myopic person, the big office will become small within a short time, but when you give a small office to a visionary and audacious administrator, the small office will be turned to a big and enviable office and this is exactly what Mrs. Anike Adekanye has done here in this District”, Muri-Okunola stated.

In a similar vein, the Commissioner for Education, Mrs. Folasade Adefisayo implored both the teaching and non-teaching staff of the District to be mindful of how they relate with the students.
