According to Iwerebon, the 2024 edition of the award is the sixth in the series though it started 12 years ago. The company which was formerly known as Longman Plc honoured the three national outstanding candidates in the 2023 June/July NECO examination.

A heartbreaking news on internet today!

Since morning I have been down because of this horrible incident of house collapse in Jos.

I was still reading the news of Corps members who were injured as a result of hostel building collapse at NYSC Camp in Ekiti…

I saw another news of school building collapse in Jos, Plateau state, with many children dead, some rescued but injured, others still trapped.

From the stories I have read, 122 children have so far been rescued and 22 confirmed dead.

News has it that a woman who lost her only child, became traumatised and now she is hospitalised!

Another woman passed away after confirming that 4 kids of hers were all in the said building.

Now report has it that their father couldn’t bear the shock, too, and he died immediately he discovered his 4 kids were confirmed dead.

My condolences to the affected parents, and to the bereaved families. May God console you and give you the fortitude to bear the losses.

We pray God to forgive the sins of the departed souls and grant them eternal rest and peace
