She berthed at GSS Bwari as the principal where she has held sway since 2013.

The cordial relationship which she has built between the school and the host community has led to a partnership between the institution and JAMB. As a result of this, JAMB has donated 660 set of student bunks, 250 students’ desks, 2 hand-pump boreholes and 35 KVA Mikano Perking generator set to the school.
To describe this icon as versatile is not an understatement. She is a teacher, disciplinarian, educator, mentor, philanthropist, motivator and a counsellor. To cap it all, Dr. (Mrs.) Favour Martina Edem-Nse is a lover of humanity.
Let me quickly mention here that this woman is humble, and has a good sense of humour. She is of impeccable character, very reliable, full of initiatives and highly resourceful.
