Ekiti man writes Niger school, offers to teach Maths, science for free


An Ekiti State man identified as Amusa Lasisi has disclosed why he had chosen to teach secondary school students at Government Day College, Tunga Lowcost, Minna, for free.

Lasisi, in a letter dated April 29, 2024, titled, “Application for voluntary teaching engagement on science subjects for compassion, patriotism and active community development”, attributed his reasons to the mass failure recorded in the just-conducted examinations – Joint Admissions and Matriculations Board, West African Examination Council and National Business and Technical Examination Council in Niger and other states.

He added that he was more interested in developing the students rather than exiting the country to promote ‘Japa’ sydrome.

The letter addressed to the principal read, “In furtherance to the great call of nationalism, patriotism, and active community development imbibed during active service to my wonderful fatherland, Nigeria, under the National Youth Service Scheme in 2019 in Kwara State, Nigeria, I apply to your school, Government Day Science College (GDSC) in Tunga Lowcost, Minna, Niger State, Nigeria for Voluntary Teaching Engagement on Science and Technical Subjects like Mathematics, Physics, Basic Science and Technology for compassion, patriotism and active community development.

“This move was necessitated owing to the high failure rates recorded by graduating students yearly in Senior School Examinations conducted by the trio of the West African, National and Business and Technical Examination Councils together with University Matriculation Examinations administered by the Joint Admissions & Matriculations Board (JAMB) in Niger and other states of Nigeria.


“Sir, I believe that this effort, if eventually considered and approved as desired, would be better off than criticising the government of the day for its insensitivity to education or, better still, leaving Nigeria for other neighbouring African and European countries (Japa syndrome) in search of greener pastures, as is usually the case with some of my youthful colleagues who desire Nigeria to be great but don’t have any sense of responsibility to that effect.”
