Cap­i­tal Sci­ence Academy grad­u­ates 160

Daily Trust - - BUSINESS - By Nana Ya­haya

One hun­dred and sixty stu­dents of the Cap­i­tal Sci­ence Academy, Kuje on Satur­day, grad­u­ated from the school with some out­stand­ing stu­dents bag­ging for­eign schol­ar­ship awards.

Ad­dress­ing dig­ni­taries at the event, the chair­man of the school’s board of di­rec­tors, Prof. Zaynab Al­kali, as­sured that the school would con­tinue to main­tain its high stan­dards.

She said the good ex­am­i­na­tion re­sults of the stu­dents dur­ing the year could not have been pos­si­ble with­out the con­certed ef­forts of all the stake­hold­ers and thanked them for their sup­port.

Pro­fes­sor Al­kali, how­ever, stated that as with any pro­gress­ing in­sti­tu­tion, the school has no im­mu­nity against chal­lenges, some of which were as old as the school it­self but noted that the school strives to over­come such, as it aims for ex­cel­lence.

She said de­spite such chal­lenges, the school had suc­ceeded in com­plet­ing the Cap­i­tal Sci­ence Pri­mary School at BUA Es­tate, Kado and is sched­uled to open in Septem­ber 2017.

Earlier, the school’s prin­ci­pal Mr. Stephen Robin­son urged the grad­u­at­ing stu­dents to brazen up for the chal­lenges of life as their grad­u­a­tion was just a step­ping stone. Po­lice of­fi­cers in Wuye have ar­rested a 33- yearold sus­pected hand­bag snatcher.

A lo­cally made pis­tol, one live car­tridge and a fe­male hand­bag were re­cov­ered from him when he was ar­rested on Sun­day.

A state­ment by the com­mand’s spokesper­son, DSP An­juguri Manza said the sus­pect, Joseph Okanga of Kar­ma­jiji, was a mem­ber of a syn­di­cate that al­legedly rob vic­tims of their phones, hand­bags and other valu­ables at gun­point.
