FCT Minister Lectures Students On Benefits Of Hard Work

Minister of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), Malam Muhammad Musa Bello, has lectured over 100 students on numerous benefits attached to hard work.

The minister spoke today, February 21, while presenting various gifts to the students and their teachers who performed excellently well at national and international competitions, including essays, quizzes and debates, in the year 2022.

Represented by the Permanent Secretary in the ministry, Olusade Adesola, the minister said that their successes at the competitions could not have come without hard work and dedication.

“We have the awardees cutting across all the age brackets in the school system. This speaks volume as to the capability of our teachers and the good work you are doing.

“That is why some of our teachers also received awards because the system has come to realize and appreciate the fact that the students did not become what they are without the teacher.”

Muhammad Bello reminded the students that commitment and hard work are key to every success in life and advised them to hold on to such attitude for their overall success even after school.

“Always remember that you can attain a lot of benefits by working hard and it always pays to work hard.”

The Secretary explained that the awards were won by over 100 students and teachers in various fields of academics, social and sporting activities, adding that the award winners emanated from both public and private schools in both senior and junior categories.

“We felt it is our duty to bring them up to the leadership of the FCT for recognition so that we may get the encouragement for them to do better in future competitions.”
