I can say it anywhere he is a man who cares. It is better to place your trust on a man you know. How many governors have visited your school. You know who cares for you”
According to the Governor: “those of you who know Benin five years ago know there is a difference now. It is better to place your trust on a man who cares. I am commissioning the new 6-lane Akpakpava road because of the commitment of the Governor to the people.
“Remain prayerful for the leaders of the country so that they can continue to use public money for the good of the people of the country,” he said.
Governor Adams Oshiomhole who noted the importance of education to the nation’s growth said Nigeria could only attain technological development if things are done right.
According to him, the future of Nigeria does not depend on the quantity of liquid minerals. What defines a failed nation from a successful one is not only a function of natural endowment but the quality of the human capital.”
