NAN reports that the Governor stated this when he attended the graduation ceremony of Edo STAR Teachers Professional Development Programme at Samuel Ogbemudia Model College, Benin on Wednesday.
According to the Governor, “I want to assure you that my party is solidly behind me, I am not standing on my own.
“So ignore and forget what you are reading in the newspapers; those are people who want me to give them money rather than use it to develop the state.”
He said his administration was determined to use the state’s resources to prioritize development, especially in the education and health sectors.
“We do not have the money in Edo but whatever we have, no matter how little, the priority will be on education and health.
“The things that affect Edo citizens are the things important to us and those are the things I stand for and those are the things APC stands for,” he said.
He explained that the College of Education at Abudu would have a laboratory for the training of primary school teachers, the college in Igueben would train secondary school teachers, while the one in Afuze would train Physical Education and Special Needs teachers.
He added that the digital teaching and learning process being used in public primary schools would be replicated in private primary schools across the state, to ensure that no child was left out.
