“I want to congratulate Mr. Hakeem Fahm, the Honourable Commissioner for Science and Technology and Mrs. Folashade Adefisayo, the Honourable Commissioner for Education for winning Academic Excellence Award while emphasizing opportunities that the Award can earn the Lagos State government among which were bringing technological advanced personalities that are products of AEI to strengthen Education with industry 4.0,” the Executive Director of AEI, Engr.

The Project Coordinator, Prince Adesegun Ogungbayi reminded the Lagos State government of the Online WAEC/WASSCE clinic the organization run free of charge, Free Online JAMB Clinic and Free JAMB mock. All these to “strengthen” SS 3 students.

“The best time for students to write and pass UTME JAMB distinctly is while in SS 3.

“We are delighted to announce that the best Scholar of AEI last year, Abdullah Muhammad of Dairy Farm College scored 341, while the most outstanding AEI Scholar from Vetland Grammar School, Sholana Taiwo made 7As and 2Bs. He also scored 340 in JAMB UTME.

“Additionally, we have those of Dansol High School that scored 357 in JAMB, to mention but a few.

“With that, it is evidently clear that if the government keep encouraging the SS3 students nationwide to write UTME (JAMB has already considered this in its plans), more than 50% of the students will be securing admission annually and the students too will believe in themselves and the government” Ogungbayi noted.
