Mrs Angela who made the book presentation public at the Exhibition Centre, near ICC Abuja on Thursday said the book is aimed at helping school owners run an effective school system in Nigeria.
According to her, the book is a blueprint, how-to guide and reference tools all rolled into one, written in an accessible style and full of practical tips. It is a powerful guide for anyone running a school or holding leadership position in one.
In his opening remarks at the event, the chairman of the occasion, Dr. Bode Kalejaiye stated that Nigeria should build a knowledge-based economy while adding that The School Guide is a great contribution in that aspect. He also urged the audience to buy at least 10 of the book as a step to achieving the knowledge-based economy.
The guest speaker, Mr Tope Toogun during his presentation stated that the only sector that has refused to change in Nigeria is the Educational Sector, adding that even mosques and churches have changed the way they do things these days. He lamented about the poor educational structure and the less attention paid to the sector in Nigeria.
“The children of any nation are its future. A country, a movement, a person that does not value its youth and children does not deserve its future” Tope Toogun said while quoting Nelson Mandela.
The book reviewer, asked the author some key questions about the book which she explained in details giving her experience in the educational sector both in public and private sector.
