A teenager Ololade Adesina, who scored nine As in the 2023 West Africa Examination Council (WAEC) senior school examination, won 15 awards at the 15th graduation ceremony of Rehoboth College, Ilorin, Kwara State on Friday.

In his valedictory speech, Adesina appreciated the teaching staff for their commitment to the academic success of their students.

He asserted that his sterling performance in the WASSCE examinations, in which he recorded nine As, would not have been possible without the doggedness and relentless efforts of all the teaching staff.

Adesina, the school’s head boy, affirmed that the zero tolerance of the school to examination malpractice during internal and external exams, was the push he needed to succeed.

The event, which was attended by several dignitaries, also commemorated the 20th year that Rehoboth College was established.

Proprietor of the school, Sam Popoola, noted that the school has continued to leap in bounds in its bid to become the school of choice in Kwara.

He added that the performances of both junior and senior students in external examinations like WASSCE, NECO and JAMB, was excellent, culminating in Adesina scoring nine As in all subjects.

Chairman of the board of governors, Rehoboth Schools, Prof. Alfred Adegoke, in his goodwill message, aligned with the proprietor that the growth the school has recorded is highly commendable.
