The Chairman, Apapa Local Government Area, Hon. Ayodeji Joseph, has said that the council will continue to place high premium on the educational development of the residents.
Speaking through his wife, Sarah Joseph at the 2012 Spelling Bee Competition, he noted that without the right education, it would difficult to overcome their economic and social challenges.
“At this juncture, I must commend the initiators, Senator Oluremi Tinubu for pioneering such a rich programme and the current First Lady for keeping the flag of this soul-building endeavour flying.”
He asked the youth to take advantage of the competition to redefine their future instead of engaging in activities that would not make positive result in their lives. This, he said, could be achieved by devoting ample time to their studies.
