“You should strive to be excellent both in character and learning. You should also face your studies squarely.
“You should not disappoint your parents, the people of the state and government, as well as Nigeria,” Wamakko said.
Hajiya Nana Danmowa, who spoke on behalf of the parents, commended the government for the gesture.
