2022 UTME: King’s College student to get N400,000 for excellence 


The principal, King’s College Lagos, Mr Andrew Agada, has said that the institution is gradually returning to its glory days, following the excellent performance of students in recent examinations.

Mr Agada was reacting to the 355 scores posted by one of the students, Emmanuel Lawal, at this year’s Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) organised by the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB).

“Recall that JAMB had, at its recent policy meeting, listed students who scored 300 and above as the best performers in its 2022 UTME.

Agada told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in an interview on Tuesday in Lagos. He said, “We’re gradually making it back to the top; this is what we have been looking for.

“The glory days of this institution are gradually returning, following this performance of Emmanuel and many others, and I must say it is heartwarming.

“We are improving and we want to keep on improving.

The principal said that, against this backdrop, Lawal would be gifted a total of N400,000 from the college and other key stakeholders of the 113-year-old  all-boys school.

He said that he had promised the boys that the best among any of them that would post 300 and above, would be celebrated.

“I made this promise last year, that is, for the set of 2021, and one of them actually posted over 300 in that year’s UTME; but due to  some family concerns, he could not be celebrated.

“However, this year, I am proud to announce that one of our students is also among those who did exceptionally well, scoring 355 at the 2022 UTME.”
