LAPO Boosts Teaching, Learning of Sciences in Edo, Delta Schools With N5.7m 


Lift Above Poverty Organisation (LAPO) spent about N5.7 million to improve the teaching and learning of science subjects in secondary schools in Edo and Delta States.

This was done through the 2021 Annual LAPO Quiz Competition organized for students in the two sister states with the support of LAPO Microfinance Bank Limited. 

Dr Honestus Ayo Obadiora, Executive Director of LAPO, disclosed this in Benin City at the grand finale of the competition.

Obadiora said the N5.7million was used in purchasing science laboratory equipment for the three successful schools in the quiz competition as well as for planning the competition.

He said that LAPO has over the years invested in poverty alleviation through scholarships and quiz competitions, adding that education was a potent weapon against poverty.


“The quiz competition is aimed at enhancing students’ understanding of science subjects, providing an equitable platform for teachers and students of various schools to exchange ideas and learning experiences.

“It is also an avenue for participants to display excellent knowledge about sciences,” he said.

He also added that six out of the 370 public and private secondary schools that participated in the 2021 Quiz competition were selected to the final stage.

In her remarks, the Delta Commissioner for Education, Rose Ezewu, commended LAPO for complimenting government’s efforts in promoting quality education in Edo and Delta.

The commissioner, represented by Mrs Iyke Mordi of the State Ministry of Education, urged other Non-Governmental Organisations (NGO) to emulate LAPO to improve the standard of education in Nigeria.

Deeper Life High School, Warri won the Quiz competition, while Baptist High School, Benin emerged second position, while the Word of Faith Group of Schools, Benin, came third.
