Earlier in her welcome address, the Chairman, SMOGAGA, Hon Justice Glady Kpenikpe Olotu, said the project is continuous and will impact lives greatly, lamenting that resources are limited to execute more projects.

‘Our resources are limited and have been depleted by the execution of these projects,’ he said.

In his goodwill message, Deputy Governor of Edo State, represented by Mrs Faith Irabor, thanked SMAGOGA for complementing government effort in the education sector.

Chairman on the occasion, Mr Daniel Inneh, said Edo State and Nigeria would benefit a lot from an Association like SMAGOGA with its seriousness, focus and commitment.

In her response, the head girl of the school, Osaigbovo Osaigbokan, while thanking the association for the kind gesture, said skill acquisition is a trending thing in the nation hence students would use the facilities provided to learn the necessary skills and be self-reliant rather than looking for white-collar jobs.
