“Some of these people are neglected and derogatorily judged as a nuisance. As a father, I must ensure they are properly integrated into the system and progress of Iwoland.”
“To achieve the rehabilitation target, I have set aside a fund to promote their talent. I want to host, wine, dine and exchange words of hope in them. I want to give promoters of thuggery in Iwoland a red card.”
“Iwoland is a place of hope. We want to see our youth been part of the process. We will ensure Iwoland becomes the bastion of peace in Iwoland.”
“The orphans, widows and the less privileged can join the session. There will be food and drink for all and sundry at the event.”
