“I am the son of the soil and I have been the only voice of change in the South-east. Therefore, I represent the bridge that connects the South-east with the North,” he said.

He said he would begin works on the college in Sokoto as soon as the in-coming administration allocates him a land, saying that was his own way of contributing towards educating the children of the less privileged in the state.

He said there could be no future for the children of the poor without quality education.

Okorocha praised Governor Aliyu Wamako of Sokoto State for according priority to education, saying his achievements would linger in the minds of the people for a long time.

Wamakko, in his remarks,  said the three Prototype Model Schools were set up in different parts of the Sokoto metropolis to tackle congestion and improve the quality of education in the state.
