“Look at the school. It is a foundation for moral upbringing. See the facilites. Why would the children not be given the best.
“I want to encourage others to emulate what Pastor David Ibiyeomie is doing to contribute to the development of the state. It is not just being a pastor. We have gone beyond that”.
