I am glad that we are already getting results for our modest efforts, as recent outing in national competition have shown. We will not rest on oars".

"We are providing these multi-million naira instructional materials to further ease access to qualitative basic education. Instructional materials are central to effective teaching and learning. I commend our partners and donor agencies for their support which makes this possible. I also commed all the stakeholders in the education sector, including the management of SUBEB for their untiring efforts to restore the glory of basic education in the state", AbdulRazaq said.

"Let me quickly commend the efforts of Your Excellency for the prompt response to the yearnings and aspirations of all the workers in the state through the regular payment of workers' salaries and the implementation of the new consequential adjustment for all the teaching and non-teaching staff across the state. 

"Let me congratulate Your Excellency on the recent victory of our students on the 1st position attained on the presidential debate held in Lagos on 15th December, 2022 which led to the state representing Nigeria in the World competition holding in the United Arab Emirates, Dubai in July 2022".
