He commended Governor Bello for bringing a higher institution of learning to Okun land.

He noted that Mopa be a better choice for the institution to take off.

“Government Technical College Mopa is situated in a very big plain land that will be able to accommodate the University. Already, we have structures all over the place and those structures will serve as take off before constructing new ones.

“Mopa has produced a governor, two deputy governors, senator, House of Representatives member and Speaker of the State House of Assembly. I think Mopa deserve an institution and if Governor Bello can site the institution in Mopa land, the people will be very grateful,” he said.

He thanked the Governor for making it possible during his tenure for considering Okun land for an institution pointing out that the people of Okun land will always rally round him and make sure he succeed.

He said the ruling party in the state will win the coming governorship election as the people of Okun land will vote massively for the party.
