Lagos State Governor, Akinwunmi Ambode, yesterday attended the Golden Jubilee grand reunion of FGC, Warri, his alma mater.
The governor said:
The governor said:
“Indeed, my becoming a governor can be attributed to what I gained and learnt from this school. We must come together, all of us to ensure that the vision of the establishment of the school must not die.
So it is a great honour to all of us to return here after decades and celebrate this 50th anniversary. We are benefiting from the vision planted years ago.
I want to assure the principal that we are going to bring back the good old days of this school. I wish all the students well and pray that you all be better and more successful than all of us here today.
I like to say a big welcome to seniors and juniors. One great thing about this school is that no matter what you become in life your senior remains your senior.”
In a very surprising development, President Buhari has stated that he will not honour his pledge to grant every unemployed Nigerian N5000.
He revealed that he’s not too inclined to give out the N5,000 monthly stipend promised by his party- the All Progressives Congress, during the last general election campaign
Whilst speaking in Saudi Arabia as he continued his visit to the Middle East over the weekend, Buhari said he would rather focus on funding the construction of infrastructure, as well as education, agriculture and mining to create employment opportunities for able bodied young men.
“This largesse N5,000 for the unemployed, I have got a slightly different priority,” the president said.“I would rather do the infrastructure, the school and correct them and empower agriculture, mining so that every able bodied person can go and get work instead of giving N5,000 to those who don’t work.”
