President Buhari at the Mid-Term Ministerial Performance Review Retreat

President Buhari has sent a message of Congratulations to Mrs Funke Ibrahim, the Proprietress of Funtaj International Schools, Abuja on her 60th birthday.

In a statement issued by Femi Adesina, Presidential Media Aide on 15th of April, 2023, the President says he shares the joyous occasion of Mrs. Funke Ibrahim’s 60th birthday with the teaching profession, family and friends, saluting the renowned educationist and Executive Director/Principal of Funtaj International Schools, Abuja, for close to 30 years of teaching, grooming and raising leaders.

“President Buhari rejoices with Mrs. Ibrahim on the landmark age, and her many achievements, including the goodwill of starting a crèche to help busy mothers in the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), which grew into one of the largest educational institutions, with pre-nursery, nursery, primary and boarding secondary schools, and overtime turned into most families’ choice for quality education.

“As the educationist turns 60, the President extols her large-heartedness and foresight for inspiring many graduates to take up teaching as a career, particularly in the FCT, training and retraining her staff, at home and abroad, and extending her vision to the less privileged by donating educational materials, building classrooms and regularly sensitizing communities on the value of education, especially in the hinterland.

“President Buhari congratulates Mrs Ibrahim, and her spouse, Tajudeen, for their leading role in pioneering private sector educational development in the FCT, and encouraging the growth and spread of more schools, hiring seasoned scholars, like Head of Schools, Leslie Nnebedum, who taught the first family’s children in Kaduna.

“The President prays for more years of good health, strength and wisdom for Mrs Ibrahim, and her family, the statement added.
