“The present regime has a lot of plans in place and has them in mind, I came here on behalf of APC to identify with them.
“The school authority should collaborate with the Federal Ministry of Education and other agencies to create more awareness and solicit support for the proper maintenance and effective running of the school.
“The school needs to work with Ministry of Education to make meaningful contribution, people need to be sensitised to contribute to the development of the society.
“There are well meaning Nigerians around who can help to make our society a better place.”
