“Iam worried that people asked for school fees of about N20,000. I have a foundation to reach out to the poor , especially the brilliant one ,who have good results but no money to train them
In have my foundation,we use to empower the youths ,reducing the poverty in the communities and also treating people with health challenges. There is a limit one can do as an individual. I thought I can do more as a senator.”
