The recently released 2024 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) results by the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) have revealed a concerning trend.

He has called on parents to take a more active role in monitoring and guiding their children’s academic pursuits. He emphasized the importance of limiting distractions and creating conducive home learning environments.

He stressed the need for government intervention, such as increasing the education budget, implementing teacher training programs, and improving school infrastructure, to ensure teachers are adequately equipped and motivated to impart knowledge effectively.

In light of these results, Hon.

He underscored that the alarming number of candidates who did not meet the required threshold is a clear and urgent indication of underlying issues that demand immediate attention.

Hon. Ogunmolasuyi underscored the need for parents to prioritize their children’s education and ensure that they are academically prepared and emotionally and psychologically supported. He urged parents to actively engage with their children’s educational journey, providing guidance and encouragement to help them succeed, thereby empowering them with the crucial role they play in their children’s education.

Furthermore, Hon. Ogunmolasuyi stressed the importance of government intervention in addressing the education sector’s challenges. He called on the government to prioritize education and allocate adequate resources to improve infrastructure, enhance teacher training, and provide necessary student support systems.

The Majority Leader also underscored the need for teachers to be motivated and appreciated for their hard work and dedication. He emphasized that teachers play a crucial role in shaping the nation’s future and should be adequately supported to perform their duties effectively.
