“I want to encourage our learners to make good use of the opportunity to learn and improve their knowledge of the French language because it will give you an advantage over your peers and also open more opportunities for you in the international markets in future”, he advised

The Commissioner commended teachers of French Language for complementing the government's effort in its revitalisation agenda on education, saying it had increased the acceptability of the subject.
