“Over the next three years, we will have about N40 billion to utilise in changing the face of education in Edo and Nigeria.

He continued: “It will interest you to know that this facility will help us at the secondary school level to do what we have started doing at the basic education level so that by the time a child has gone through five years of learning, that child will be exposed not only to learning and literacy but also to a vocation.”
