..Today, after an intensive 9 hours of training session on education reforms with Mr. Taiwo Akinlami, Ms. Alero etc in the building...It was exhilarating to end the day with a phone call from one of our girls -Uche! Who has just checked her GCE result, and, she passed all her O-Level subjects... after several attempts & 'unproductive 7 years'. Yes! I remembered posting about her 'ordeal' & lack of funding, here. And, someone decided to pay for her exams...tHaNk YoU, 'Labode. *winks*smiles*
Atlast, she is free from O'Level examinations!! For, while she yet spake...she couldn't hold back the tears..she cried freely, too. *winks* that must be some tears of joy, I guess. Wooohoooo!!
Thanks Friends For All You Do For Young People. #GodBless. #Glory.
