"This is a tonic that has brought great relief to our souls. It's a well deserved honour. You have demonstrated that you're kind. It is not only reading and writing ability that makes you unique and identified, there are other side of it which is moral and behavioral.

"Education will not be relevant if it doesn't have value to the people, members of the society to make them better. You have represented MAPOLY excellently well and you're a role model. You have fulfilled our mandate of producing total useful students.

"Others should emulate you. Our labour not in vain. Despite salary not being paid for six months, our efforts is not in vain after all."

She urged the youths to stop lamenting and contribute their quota to the development of their immediate communities for a better society.  

She therefore enjoined other students to be optimistic of a better Nigeria with dedication, hardwork and determination to excel in all strata of life. 

"I feel excited and a great privilege to part of the awardees. It's a great honour for me and my family. The youths should stop complaining that the country is not good, they should look for ways of improving the country by contributing their quota to the advancement of the nation."
