1. I was born into a lineage of builders, grew up on construction sites and studied Civil Engineering. There is the basic understanding that a building cannot be strong if the blocks and other materials used are weak. #elections
2. There is no miracle an engineer can perform to build a skyscraper with weak blocks. How do we build a developed country with citizens that are not well educated or skilled, and can hardly understand discussions on development? #elections
3. My heart broke some days back when I chatted with a cousin on phone. It took him 4 years to get into university, and 8 years later, he’s waiting to graduate and to be called up for the NYSC. He just turned 30. #elections
4. All prosperous countries have their school systems designed to produce citizens with character, and that can read, write and solve problems: Citizens that can create wealth and maintain order. #elections
5. Perhaps the first thing we should seek from candidates is what plans they have to improve our thinking. The state of our schools today will be the state of our country tomorrow. The quality of our democracy and economy will be same with the quality of our citizens. #election
6. Not only should candidates for the elections have plans to invest a significant portion of the budget in education, they should have plans to tweak our education policies and content, and be able to communicate with Nigerians, shaping our values. #elections
7. Transforming the average Nigerian from the inside out is the essence of the leadership we need at all levels. Nigerian lives matter to God. They must matter to us. Vote wisely. #elections
