A 16-year-old student of Ikotun Senior High School, Ikotun, Master Idowu Sonoiki, yesterday emerged as a ‘One-Day Governor’ in Lagos State for this year.

He won the title by virtue of being the overall winner of this year’s edition of the state’s Spelling Bee competition among students from public secondary schools in the state. It is the 15th edition in the series.

With the development, he succeeded Olabanji Edun, a student of Army Children School, Ikeja, last year’s winner whose tenure expired yesterday with the emergence of a successor.

Sonoiki, an SS1 student and indigene of Ogun State defeated 55 others from across six educational districts in the state, who scaled through the preliminary stage at the local government levels to the final stage of the competitive exercise held within the secretariat complex, Alausa, Ikeja.

He is expected to perform the pseudo roles of a state governor for one day in September with his cabinet members, who are six other contestants queuing immediately behind him in the contest. They include Masters Abdullaidi Faaizi from Omole Senior High School, Ojodu, and Fehinti Dahunsi from Lagos Senior Model College, Konkon, Badagry, who took second and third positions, respectively.

While Sonoiki was rewarded on the spot with a medal, N200,000 and a trophy for his effort, the first and second runners-up also went home with a medal, trophy, N150,000 and 100,000, respectively.

Spelling Bee competition is a concept developed 15 years ago by New Era Foundation of Senator Oluremi Tinubu when her husband was governor of the state. It was aimed at developing the reading and vocabulary skills of students at primary and secondary schools in the state.

Commissioner for Education, Mrs. Olayinka Oladunjoye, in her remark, said the overall goal of the competition, which is to raise the standard of education, has been achieved as shown in the performance of students in external examinations and continuous progress experienced by various past winners in their career paths.

She congratulated the top three and other participants, urging them and their mates across the state to give their studies a deserved attention so as to achieve their life ambitions.

Also, Director-General of the state’s Education Quality Assurance under whose office the competition rests, Mrs. Ronke Soyombo, said the state would not renege in producing sound education for people of the state

Poster, is this not the child you came up with a story in the USA that was kidnapped and he started singing a gospel song repeatedly before the kidnappers got fed up and told him to get out of the car after some kilometers drive ? This was the same photograph with the story. I could remember vividly.
