Fubara also noted that beside the provision of roads and houses, which most people know as development efforts, harnessing talents was also an important aspect of development.

He added; “I accepted to do this for one reason. It is to send a message to our youths that when you are ready to excel and unleash yourself to the world positively, we will always stand by you.

“I also feel happy that the winner of this show is from my alma mater. I want to say to everyone who is watching, you can still be in school and still become whatever you want to be outside your academics.

“As a government, we are going to support you and see you through schooling. So, we are not going to give you money. I will award a scholarship to you to any level that you want to get to.”
