The ex-commissioner who is also a school proprietor, spoke as a guest speaker at the 2021 Annual School Managers’ Training on Thursday in Ikeja as organised by the Lagos State chapter of League of Muslim school Proprietors (LEAMSP)
According to him, honesty, integrity, consultation and accountability were among the core values that determines the success of private school management in Nigeria.
Integrity and accountability
“It’s about imbibing the culture of hardwork, honesty, integrity and accountability on the part of the school leaders and managers,” he highlighted
Also speaking at the training, a director with the Lagos State Ministry of Education, Mr Yemi Adebayo welcomed the emergence of more private schools which he described as a strength from government but emphasised that the quality of education being offered in those schools should be monitored by the government.
“When you look at the national policy on education, basic education must be made compulsory and be free, which the government is doing.
“When you look at our terrain, you observe that the federal or state government alone cannot carry the burden of education, so private partnership is highly welcome.
What the government should do is to ensure the quality of teaching and learning in those schools are in line with national policy, ” he said.
The event was graced by top Human Resource Manager, the CEO Brainy Educare, Mrs Eniola Olajobi, whose discussion focussed on Strategies for Effective Management of Resources in School for Top Performance.

In his address, the new chairman of LEAMSP, Lagos State Chapter, Alhaji Mansur Yeqeen expressed his appreciation for the overwhelming support of his executive members and members of the association for the success of the training.
