Olachi, who said that she wants to study Law at the Babcock University, said that her secret is God, and hard work that the school put them through.
“My secret is God. He is the one that I am relying on, because I should rely on my own efforts, I can be disappointed. So, I know that aside from working hard, paying attention in class and engaging in all the drillings in school, it is God that gave me the opportunity to be able to access such privileges”, she said.
“It is a great honour that I can’t even beginning to explain. Many years ago, I decided about what I wanted to achieve; that I was going to come out as the best graduating student. I believe that with prayers and hard work, everything is achievable.
She said that her greatest moment in the school is her academic achievements which she was celebrated for.
Olachi also charged her junior who are still in school, to put God first and also work and read hard to achieve success.
“There are many great moments that I experienced while in this school and I don’t think that I can pick one as best, but right now is probably the best. I mean, right now; feeling well; finishing well and people will remember me as that student that graduated with a fantastic results and not someone that just left”, she said.
“My junior ones should focus on God in everything that they do. He is their priority. Also, they should know that the reward for hard work is more work. Work doesn’t stop and you have to work hard at all time. My dad always tells me to work hard and play hard”.
Also, Fadil Dosumu, who said that his plan is to study Accounting in Lagos State University (LASU), attributed his performance to the consistent academic engagements of his new school.
“I work hard and always reading. I mean consistent reading. Even in our hostel, we always have night classes, Saturday classes and Sunday classes. We always read and study hard”, he said.
“This school is actually a very nice one. My previous school was not really nice, but this one is. I came here last year.
“My message to the junior ones still in school is that they must continue to read and work hard. It is not hard to do that. They have to push hard and there is no time to stop working hard. After one mountain, there is always another. I just got the best results which is being celebrated right now, but there are still other things to be achieved in life, and I know that I am going to do it”, he said.
