The Yobe State Government will scale up its educational partnership with the Nigeria-Turkish International Colleges (NTIC) and the Nigeria-Turkish Nile University (NTNU) in order to offer more opportunities for Yobe students.
Governor Ibrahim Gaidam stated this yesterday when a delegation of First Surat Group, which manages the NTIC, NTNU and the Nigeria-Turkish Nizamiye Hospital, visited him in Abuja.
The governor noted with satisfaction the performance of Yobe students in WASC and JAMB at the NTIC Mamudo-Yobe and other NTIC schools across the country, as well as at the Nigeria-Turkish Nile university, saying the progress the students are making was possible because the state government had continued to stand by them.
The governor asked the NTIC management to devote additional time to teaching students enrolled in their schools moral and religious values, observing that this is necessary to helping develop in the students a ‘sense of responsibility and moral discipline from the very beginning.’
Taking the governor through a series of PowerPoint presentations on the performance of Yobe students both at the NTIC and NTNU, Mr. Orham Kertim, the managing director of the NTIC schools said Yobe students are among the best performing students in the schools.
He thanked the governor for his administration’s support to the NTIC, saying the schools’ management was committed to continuing with its tradition of academic excellence where students are given every possible opportunity to succeed in their chosen fields of study.
