The leadership of the Mushin Local Government Education Authority has just named a quiz competition after Mr Owolabi Falana, a permanent board member of the Lagos State Universal Basic Education Board.

This competition which was tagged “OJ Falana Quiz Competition in Social Studies and Civic Education” is in commemoration of the feat achieved by Falana twenty years ago as the best in social studies during his secondary school days.

The inaugural annual Owolabi Falana Quiz Competition was hosted by the Mushin Local Government Education Authority (LGEA) to encourage reading culture and provide civic engagement amongst the pupils.

It was launched by the honoree himself on 6th December 2022 and serves as a quiz competition for indigent pupils in his local government, Mushin LGA.

In his address to the pupils, Mr Falana recounted to how after leaving primary school, he was not only one of the best students at AUD Model College, but also graduated with first class honours, at the university in Ukraine.

He said “while in the corporate world, I never had to lobby for job opportunities; I was head-hunted to lead various organizations, and now in the public sector as a Permanent Board member in SUBEB all within 20 years. With these feats; I told the kids that there is no limitation to how far a Mushin child can go in life!”

He further advised the parents to prioritise the education of their wards, just like his father, Mr. Olajide Falana did noting that immense parental sacrifice has engendered the accomplishments that’s being celebrated today.
