Lagos State teachers have won the first, second and third positions in the just-concluded Association of Professional Women in Engineering (APWEN) STEM Training/ Practical Competition.

Four other teachers from the state also won consolation prizes for being among the 10 best participating teachers in the competition.

While addressing the awardees at a presentation ceremony held on Friday December 4, 2020, at the Secretariat, Alausa, Ikeja, the Permanent Secretary, Ministry of Education, Mrs. Abosede Adelaja, expressed delight at the success recorded by these teachers.

She stated that the state government is indeed proud of their achievements.

She stressed that the teachers from Lagos State clinched the top positions — seven out of the 10 slots available.

Adelaja stated that the achievements by these teachers are a proof to the quality of education the state government offers Lagosians, ensuring that these teachers are well equipped and are constantly trained for excellence in service delivery across the schools within the State.

“We are in the days of critical thinking, where the teachers can give the students ideas and require them to form their own knowledge; this is the new norm for critical concepts in our society and any teacher in this noble profession must up the scale to be more relevant,” she said.

The Permanent Secretary disclosed that the administration of Governor Babajide Olusola Sanwo-Olu has invested enormously in several programmes and initiatives to improve the standard of teaching and learning, as well as ensuring that the welfare of teachers is priority.

While extending appreciation to members APWEN, she said that despite the challenges faced during the virtual competition, they were able to achieve the best results and enjoined the teachers to continue their good work.

She also called for more collaboration with the Association to further build capacity for teachers.

The immediate past President of APWEN, Engineer Felicia Agubata, appreciated the Lagos State government for its contribution and support throughout the competition in which results were widely accepted and judged fairly.

Mr. Lawal Kazeem Akinsola of Lagos State Junior Model College, Kankon, Badagry, Education District V clinched the first position of this year’s competition while Miss Nnaji Chika Adebola of Baptist Junior, Surulere, Education District IV and Miss Alexander Ibukun of Ajara Comprehensive Senior High School, Education District V took the Second and Third positions.

The winners were presented with gifts ranging from laptops, tablets and certificates.
