The Chairman Board Of Governors, Jextoban Secondary School, Ibafo, Ogun State, Mr Emmanuel Ojo, has told the graduating students of the school to be solution providers and not complainers.
He gave this advice at the 22nd&23rd joint valedictory/graduation ceremony of the school, saying those who provided solutions to societal problems made money with ease.
He said, “Those who provide solutions to societal problems make money with ease. Therefore, be a solution provider not the person who complains. Remember, if you are diligent in your business, you will stand before kings and not before mean men.”
Ojo who was represented by Mr Funsho Olaniyan also advised parents to allow children work hard for their success no matter how financially comfortable they may be.
“I appeal to parents that they should know their children very well by becoming their friends and winning their confidence.”
He told parents not to encourage their children to sit as private candidates for the SSCE (WAEC or NECO) when they were moving to SS3, adding that such an act would expose them to various examination malpractices and distracts them from concentrating on the final exams.
The school’s principal, Mr Olurotimi Jiboku, told the graduating students to be strong and courageous.
“These children can surmount anything, there is no issue, challenge that they cannot surmount. That is why we are charging them and saying that they should go out there and do what they know how to do best and surmount whatever that comes their way so that at the end of the day they will be proud of themselves in whatever they are able to achieve.”
Guest speaker, Prof. Grace Otinwa of the University of Lagos, motivated the graduants to always strive for excellence and be fidel.
