In her opening remarks at the ceremony, Kanto Adesina, Territory Manager for Nigeria, Cambridge International, offered warm congratulations to the students, their teachers and principals. She said: ’Events like this are very important for Cambridge because students are at the heart of everything we do. We believe continuous and interactive learning, not exams and tests, is the ultimate purpose of education to impact individuals and the world.

‘Our examinations are designed to encourage, recognise and reward learning. They should not be regarded as an end in themselves. Our programmes and qualifications encourage students to develop their own strengths and interests, and cultivate an informed curiosity and a lasting passion for learning.’

We have been doing this in Nigeria for the last 75 years and are currently marking our 75th-anniversary celebration. We have been able to achieve several significant successes because of the key partners we work with – an example is our partnership with Cambridge International in providing Nigerian students access to globally-recognised qualifications.

At the awards this year, we also recognised outstanding schools who are key enablers to the success of the awardees through their implementation of policies that drive Equality, Diversity and Inclusion (EDI) and Child Protection. We believe that providing an enabling environment allows young people to learn and thrive, embrace their unique characteristics and prepare for global citizenship. We applaud all the award recipients and hope the awards spur them into achieving future accomplishments.’
