The School Director however said, while private schools cannot educate Nigerians alone, there is need for government to rise up to the occasion of saving the educational system from collapse.
She said, “The private school, we are trying very hard but the government school, there is overcrowding, and they are not meeting needs but private school is trying their best to meet those needs.”
Also speaking at the ceremony, the chairman of the occasion Dr Joseph Nnorom advised Nigerians to shun all vices, which has brought so much hate to the society and embrace peace.
