You will recall that the State Government Pays for the May/June West Africa Examination (WAEC) to students in Lagos State, we took this upon ourselves to support the Government and equally help any indigent but very brilliant student that his/her parents cannot afford to obtain the  NECO-SSCE.

This is our little way in stretching our helping hand to the society, It has been tedious in achieving this lofty goal but thanks to the wonderful officials.

To all the beneficiaries, I want you to make good use of the opportunity by coming out in flying colours as this may determine what you will become in life.’’
