11 “The Council Chairman is an educationist par excellence who would stop at nothing to support education at all levels.
12 “The National Open University of Nigeria (NOUN), Badagry Study Center should kick off in September and so much has been done in providing learning facilities and conducive environment for would be students.
13 “The idea is to bring education closer, affordable and easy, so that students would not go outside the local government seeking higher education.
