In the same vein, Mr. Adebowale lauded Hon. Peller’s representation and various positive impacts that he is bringing to the constituency particularly in the areas of education, infrastructural development, job and wealth creations, as well as his various empowerment programmes for the aged, women and youths.
He said, “While lauding our amiable honourable for positive impacts that his representation has brought to our federal constituency in terms of education, job creations, empowerments of both young and old, infrastructural development, just to mention a few, more ranks on your shoulders sir.”
Similarly, the headteacher seized the opportunity to present the needs of the school to Hon. Peller which included vocational training centre and school bus to facilitate attendance and punctuality on the part of the pupils.
“We cannot but present to you our needs in the school since we all know that government cannot provide all the needs of the school, and moreso we are Oliver Twist,” he concluded.
On their part, the special students, who are gifted with so many talents, appreciated Hon. Peller through various presentations made by them.
In his remarks, Hon. Peller charged the students to strive for the best, adding that there is no limit to what they can achieve in life.
Recall that last year one of the students of the school, Wasiu Idris, was added to the scholarship scheme of Hon. Peller, bringing the number of constituents on his scholarship scheme to about twenty.
