The Adéwálé Students’ Conference kicks off the 2023 journey with a courtesy tour to a few selected schools and zonal education offices across different cities in Ogun state.

The tour tagged “Adewale Goes to School” was dedicated to reaching out to secondary school students, especially science students, at the core of their learning comfort. To relay the vision and mission of the initiative in celebrating academic excellence.

The Convener, Michael Adesanya, and his team had memorable moments impacting the students and having fun while doing so through recreational games.

He picked several examples from his time during secondary school, as documented in his debut memoir Adewale My Mother’s Son. 

He endeared them to keep up the excellent work in their academic fit and reminded the students that being book smart is enriching. He shared how being an intellectual genius is worth celebrating and being seen as a talent.

In the same vein, the Adéwálé team gifted students with gifts, and the publisher of his memoir, TweakCentric Solutions, donated complimentary copies to the school libraries.

The Adewale Team met with past participants and ambassadors from previous editions during the tour.
