Princess Adeja Internation­al College, Gboko, Benue State, has won the best sec­ondary school in Nigeria award for the fourth consecutive time.
Receiving the recent award, which was won during the just concluded Annual Model Unit­ed States Conference, held in Abuja, Governor Samuel Ortom restated the resolve of his ad­ministration to partner with the private sector to make the state continue to rank among the best in terms of quality education in the country.
The governor said his ad­ministration would continue to provide a friendly environment for interested individuals to invest in the education sector, adding that available records were pointer to the state be­coming a home of academic excellence in the country.
Represented by his Special Adviser on Education, Hon Mathew Mnyam, Ortom con­gratulated the students for their brilliant performance, saying they have again made the state proud.
According to him, the stu­dents would soon be hosted at the Benue Peoples House to further celebrate them for making the state proud for the fourth consecutive time.
While advising other schools in the state to take a clue from Princess Adeja International College, Mnyam stated that the state government would not hesitate to deal decisively with schools found engaging in ex­amination malpractice as a de­liberate way of ensuring quality education in the state.
